Re: SpaceX is a go for April 30th: 1st commercial launch to space stat

I'm pretty sure they had presentations on it. Here's one of them.

Elon Musk much later said that the Merlin 2 engine was a key element of any effort they make toward super-heavy launch vehicles, but that the particular layouts in the briefing above were just ideas being tossed around. I haven't heard much about it since 2010, but they've been very busy lately on their Falcon 9 missions and the Dragon.
