Re: 29 September 2013, great day for private spaceflight
Even better. Seven successful launches by switching the vehicle right in the middle is an even better proof of the reliability if not of the vehicle itself, of the company. If they keep such a clean record until their first manned flights, I don't think anyone will have a problem flying with them.
And with the escape system requirements NASA asks for CCdev, not to mention SpaceX free interpretation of it, the future of manned spaceflight sounds safer than ever. Hopefully it is as it sounds.
