SpaceX makes history by successfully re-launching an orbital rocket for the first time

#SpaceX has successfully re-launched one of its Falcon 9 rockets into orbit and had it return to Earth safely – a first in the history of space missions. [Read More]

Summary… * Machine-Made


For reference, Popular Science notes that a #SpaceX launch costs roughly $62 million, and Musk envisions reusable rockets cutting that price down by 30 percent.
As Elon Musk noted after the rocket landed on the droneship ‘Of Course I Love You’ in the Atlantic Ocean:It’s been 15 years to get to this point.
It’s been a great day for #SpaceX and space exploration as a whole.
In addition to landing the first stage safely on the barge, #SpaceX also recovered the nose cone for the first time.
