SpaceX to send Dragon to ISS on November 30th

SpaceX has received tentative approval from NASA to send a Dragon spacecraft to the ISS on November 30th.  This will be after combining two previous planned flights into the single November 30th launch. The plan is for the spacecraft to arrive at the ISS on December 9th. This would be a huge victory for commercial space. Also if the mission is successful SpaceX will beat out competitor Orbital Science who has plans for a 2012 mission.
