#Elon Musk and #SpaceX made history this morning with the launch of a Dragon spacecraft from the #NASA Kennedy Space Center in Florida. It represents the first time the storied facility was used for a commercial launch.

But, there are other places on the web – deep, dark places – that hide themselves from Google. The dark web, sometimes called the deep web, is anonymous, unfettered, and beyond the reach of international law, at least some of the time. That’s made it the home of notorious sites like The Silk Road, where you could buy anything from guns to drugs, and more drugs – until the FBI shut it down in 2013 and sent its owner, Ross William Ulbricht, to life in prison.
