According to a SpaceX press release, all the hardware needed for the debut launch of the Falcon 9 vehicle has arrived at Space Launch Complex 40 (SLC-40), in Cape Canaveral, Florida, and a launch can be expected in one to three months after full vehicle integration. The first flight for the 154 feet tall rocket will include a Dragon spacecraft qualification unit.
SpaceX is developing a line of commercial rockets to take satellites to space, supplies to the International Space Station, and, it hopes, humans to orbit.
Its lighter lift Falcon 1 successfully reached orbit last year.
