Hey guys,

I think I can shamelessly say that today we will be celebrating SpaceX's 
first successful launch into Low Earth Orbit, becoming the first 
completely commercially developed liquid fuel booster. What does this 
mean for you and me? Cheap, reliable, low cost  rides to orbit for your 
satellites. All you need is 8 million dollars. That means that's about 
60-80 million dollars you /don't/ need to pay Boeing/Lockheed Martin and 
the fuckers at the United Launch Alliance. Those dollars should and will 
be immediately reinvested into beer. We are starting today on the first 
few million, we have a lot to get through, so show up at 9:30pm. Phi bar 
doesn't make it easy for us by making the Beer prohibitively cheap, 
which means we have to make up in volume, please come mentally prepared.
