Space X Rocket Reaches Space

The second attempt of budget-rocket company Space X to launch a rocket into space ended in a semi-success, with the Falcon 1 booster reaching space for the first time. The rocket was launched from Marshall Islands and reached an altitude of 320 kilometers into space, but the second stage booster failed due to software glitches.

The first launch of the Falcon also ended in a failure, caused by a $5 nut.
