SpaceX Makes History By Successfully Proving Real Space Rockets Can Be Reused: Lands A Giant Falcon 9 Rocket For The First Time

The video at this link and embedded below captures a historic first for humanity. Thanks to SpaceX and the many incredible engineers, planners, thinkers and leaders there, they have successfully proven that real space rockets, the kind that lift heavy payloads into working orbits, can now be safely returned to earth.  The biggest cost of launch is the engine in the rocket, and these engines can be refurbished and reused, meaning the cost of space launch can be made dramatically lower.

Congrats to all at SpaceX!  And also, from all of us, thanks! What you guys did is way cool and really appreciated.
