SpaceX wants to land on a very small target–in the ocean.

A year ago, Elon Musk’s SpaceX landed its Falcon 9, sort of. A “hard landing” showed the rocket hitting the target, but suffering enough damage that they couldn’t call it a full success. Now that SpaceX has achieved the goal of landing a rocket back on land, effectively changing the game for future space travel, they are ready to take a shot at landing on a drone ship in the middle of the ocean.

Click here for more on the January 17th launch and what’s sure to be a helluva challenging landing!  And make sure to hit up SpaceNews.com for more info from the 227th meeting of the American Astronomical Society.
