A SpaceX rocket was a wonderful spectacle on Friday when it flew into the sunrise.
The company said it is also making progress in introducing astronauts later this year.
The launch of Falcon 9 on Friday means it represents another step towards the astronaut launch from the Cape for the first time since 2011.
Something SpaceX is planning for this year.
The tests on the company's new astronaut ship are progressing.
The very first crew ship with seats and consoles is located in a test facility in Ohio.
The crew ship is due to launch in August, and a scheduled astronaut trip is scheduled for December three years ahead of schedule.
Although it's getting harder and harder to launch a human launch by the end of the year, SpaceX officials said they would stay on target.
SpaceX must launch its upgraded Falcon 9 rocket seven more times before NASA agrees to launch an astronaut.
Space giant Boeing plans to launch an astronaut from the Cape before the end of the year.
