[TRA] SpaceX Successfully Launches Satellite Into Earth Orbit

Thanks for the additional links. The article does mention the fifth flight.

"The Falcon 1 rocket blasted off at about 11:35 p.m. EDT
(0335 July 14 GMT) from the U.S. Army's Ronald Reagan
Ballistic Defense Test Site on Omelek Island in the Kwajalein Atoll,"

It might of posted the wrong link when I mailed it. This is the one it
should be.

Though the dateline is today, the authors of the article unfortunately
have written again about Flight 4, which carried a mass simulator
payload into orbit a little over nine months ago (Sunday, 9/28/08).
Flight 5 carried an active payload (RazakSAT for the Malaysian
corporation ATSB) into orbit on Monday (7/13/09, Tzero 8:35PM Los
Angeles time), and was the second completely successful launch for
Falcon 1.
