This is a short video of SpaceX successfully landing the first stage of one of its Falcon 9 rockets on a droneship floating in the Atlantic Ocean. It's so spectacular it doesn't even look real. The idea is that landing and refurbishing the boosters will cut down on costs significantly, because building new boosters is expensive. I'm not sure what the difference in cost is, but I imagine it's in the hundreds. Maybe even low thousands. "Try millions." MILLIONS?! Space is expensive. Over the weekend I was reading an article on the feasibility of building a space elevator and all I could think about was how much it would suck to get in and realize the person before you had pushed the button for every floor before they got out.
Keep going for the video.
Thanks to everyone who sent this, all of whom are invited to join my space crew and blast off for worlds unknown.
