SpaceX ended 2015 with a technological feat that amazed the space community. And they plan on starting 2016 the same way. The Falcon 9 set for launch this Sunday could be the first reused rocket in the history of space, as long as they nail the landing like they did last December. The world is watching and it seems like Elon and SpaceX are ready to deliver.
Aiming to launch this weekend and (hopefully) land on our droneship. Ship landings needed for high velocity missions https://t.co/n6j0mExAqM

In the meantime, watch this amazing video from SpaceX on their monumental landing. The reaction in the room when it touches down is hair-raising and just might bring a tear to your eye.
