Ah ... there’s that claim again

But finally, in September of that year, SpaceX completed the first orbital launch of a privately funded and developed rocket.
Nope. 18 years too late ...

This isn't the place to have that debate.

I wondered where to post this article and I ended-up putting it in the SpaceX competition thread:

I do wish the media would consider the difficulty of deciding where to reference such articles on this forum ;D

Chris just needs to add a SpaceX vs. ULA section. Problem solved, all he would needsto do is find a couple of dozen moderators to police such a section....
If you're happy and you know it,
It's your med's!

The article referenced identifies ULA and SpaceX as the two companies. You may not agree but this isn't the place to debate that identification. I think the article has a comment section, or you could engage Eric Berger via Twitter?

Personally I would recommend this be moved to either the http://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/index.php?board=1.0 or http://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/index.php?board=58.0 as the article does not pertain to only ULA.
