Space-X marks the spot! Watch this inspirational video of Spacex employees celebrating their incredible feat of human ingenuity
- After several failed attempts, The seemingly impossible task is finally achieved.
- On December 21, 2015, SpaceX's Falcon 9 delivered 11 satellites to low-Earth orbit.
- Incredible moment as the first stage of the rocket is guided back to land by SpaceX.
SpaceX has put together this awesome video which represents the culmination of their efforts to achieve an impossible dream – to land a reusable rocket back on earth as a means to save money and resources for future launches.
You can feel the tension build up as mission control carefully monitors the launch sequence:
As the rocket comes hurdling back to earth, a brief flash from its thrusters releases a plume of smoke that reveals the Falcon 9 standing upright on the LZ-1 launchpad.
The used-up rocket lands dead center in the “X” of the launchpad – demonstrating the absolute precision engineering that went into this project.
Mission control erupts with cheers and tears of joy as they realize the extent of what they just accomplished.
A truly momentous occasion not only for SpaceX, but for all of mankind.
Early in June 2015, SpaceX met many challenges and experienced a major blow when it’s previous Falcon 9 rocket broke up shortly after launch. The success of this mission only makes it that much sweeter.
