PRIVATE launch company SpaceX is set for the first commercial flight of its Falcon 1 rocket next week. Falcon 1 is a two-stage rocket powered by liquid oxygen and kerosene, which last September became the first privately built launcher to reach orbit. In next week’s launch the rocket will place the Malaysian Earth observation satellite RazakSAT into an almost equatorial orbit. The launch represents a major step towards routine commercial operations for SpaceX,
