Submission + - SpaceX gets 1st private FAA space reentry license (networkworld.com)

coondoggie writes: Space Exploration Technologies (Space X) got the first ever Federal Aviation Administration license allowing the reentry to Earth of a privately developed spacecraft.
The license was needed because the Space X Dragon space capsule is scheduled to launch atop Space X's Falcon 9 rocket on Dec. 7 and return to earth. The Launch of the rocket had already been approved by the FAA. The FAA Office of Commercial Space Transportation noted that it has licensed over 200 successful launches.
