When SpaceX tested its dream of reusable rocket technology on Jan. 10, it sought to not only recover the rocket that had flung a Dragon spacecraft to the International Space Station, but to land it, vertically, on a barge off the coast of Jacksonville, Fla. We knew SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket hit its target—already a feat for the record books—though it was said to be damaged on impact, and now we know what that looked like.
If that photo from the landing barge isn’t mind-bending enough, check out the new video SpaceX shared to Vine.
Following January’s historic launch, SpaceX remains as committed as ever to its dream of reusable rockets, a breakthrough that could reduce launch-related costs by a hundredfold. It might have been a crash landing, but there’s no doubt the beyond-ambitious company is one step closer to its dream of colonizing the red planet.
How’s that for a corporate milestone?
