On top of following how other Origin games are going, another one of our non-Wing Commander passions is obviously real life space travel. It's not every day when a major tenet of science fiction turns into science reality, so we're happy to pause for a moment to acknowledge the incredible achievement made possible by thousands of smart people working together. Trust and support science and anything is possible. This new chapter in space travel continued today with the first full crew launch of the SpaceX Dragon. It was only earlier this year when the company became the first private entity to successful launch people into space. That mission carried two astronauts aboard, and today's mission includes four people destined to operate on the International Space Station for the next six months. To say we wish them well is an understatement!
