    Amazing moment in history

    OMG! If this doesn't bring tears to your eyes, you never really loved SciFi and no explorer lives inside.

    For those of you who spent your childhood with the great authors of the time, behold the LANDING of a rocket!
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O5bTbVbe4e4
    You must at least watch liftoff and landing.
    In a little over ten years private US company SpaceX went from an idea to a reusable rocket that absolutely stuffed the landing yesterday. This may sound easy from the gymnast's point of view, but for rockets it's a mite bit more difficult.
    Truly a huge step towards space exploration.
    While not normally a big fan of Elon, I must give huge congratulations to him and team SpaceX on the performance of their latest rocket.
    Heinlein would be so proud, I know I am.

    This is such a leap forward. So glad people in this country still value science and exploration. Did you also see that NASA got a huge budget increase?

    Good, maybe they can start cleaning up all the space junk that's been left out there... I was in shock when I saw how many out of commission satellites are out there....
    Ouch, I've been hit in the wallet!!!!

    CONGRATS TO THE SPACE X TEAM! THIS IS SOME NEXT LEVEL GAME CHANGING SH*T FOR USA! And soon to be all of Mankind/Earthlings !!!!

    I am in the space industry (testing/building spacecrafts for NASA) and this is a HUGE STEP FOR USA PRODUCTION!!!!

    Rencently i got contracted out to the John Hopkins University Applied Physics Labratory(which is who built the New Horizons spacecraft for NASA's Pluto-Kuiper Belt Mission that recently did the Pluto fly-by). Here at JHU APL i am here to test and build the spacecraft for the SOLAR PROBE PLUS Mission which will be yet another 1st for the space industry...... lately there been alot of "1st time" missions which have provided ground breaking data/science that will be used to drive this generation of the space race!!!!

    Be ready for new technology breakthroughs to take us deeper into space! Further than any recorded world history has documented!!!!(Aliens Excluded lol)

    Manned Missions will hopefully soon be luanched from USA once again!!!! but we will not see anything near as big as the size of the Space Shuttle that we loved to see get launched out of Cape Canaveral,Fl

    Glad to see you guys are interested in this ! But just remember the space game is very expensive still and with out you (our outstanding tax paying citizens) there would be no industry/market, so thank you for supporting!!(but with that said, im sure u can guess how political it can be)

    The way it moves in the video looks like there is some kind of gyro in the head of the rocket keeping it vertical.
