    Elon Musk and SpaceX are starting to make landing a Falcon 9 rocket look easy.

    Something which was unfathomable only a couple of years ago is now becoming the new normal.

    And with each successful SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket landing, we are getting new vantage points, the latest being a drone’s eye view of the company’s third rocket to touch back down which took place yesterday.

    Its funny how it seems like only after SpaceX delivers a payload to space that the real action starts.

    This is glorious!

    Oh, and here’s another video Musk posted to his Instagram account:

  2. Watch SpaceX’s Falcon 9 Rocket Explode Just Minutes After Liftoff

    This past weekend, SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket exploded just minutes after its launch from Cape Canaveral, ending hopes of the first successful landing of a reusable rocket for the time being.

    It marked the first time the Falcon 9 has ever failed, following 18 successful missions.

    While the rocket was on a resupply mission to deliver cargo to the International Space Station, there is no immediate threat to the astronauts aboard the ISS as they are reportedly stocked through September with supplies.

    Elon Musk tweeted out this explanation for the explosion:

    SpaceX plans on conducting a thorough analysis to determine what led to the rocket’s liquid oxygen tank rupture.
