SpaceX made history a year ago when the company successfully landed its Falcon 9 rocket for the first time at Cape Canaveral, Florida.

However, people didn’t get to see how SpaceX CEO Elon Musk reacted and the roller coaster of emotions he went through from the launch until landing.

Thankfully, National Geographic followed Musk around and documented the whole thing, providing rare insight into the daily life of the billionaire responsible for revolutionizing private space exploration.

The whole video is fascinating but perhaps the best part of all is when Musk sees the rocket touch down and loudly exclaims, “It’s standing up!”
