So, apparently, SpaceX finally had its long-anticipated test Saturday at the McGregor development site:
1st firing of Falcon 9-R advanced prototype rocket. Over 1M lbs thrust, enough to lift skyscraper twitter.com/elonmusk/statu…— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) June 3, 2013
That tweet by SpaceX's founder and CEO was posted late last night. Company communications director Christina Ra confirmed the test today by email, saying it took place Saturday and lasted 10 seconds.
... which was the original plan, as opposed to what Ra said late last week was the revised plan to start with a test of at least 30 seconds.
More as I get it.
