SpaceX landing

This coming Sunday, SpaceX will be attempting to land their Falcon rocket on their floating platform in the Atlantic Ocean.

The main mission is to resupply the International Space Station after a malfunction on the Russian Progress spacecraft last April

This is their third attempt at manoeuvring their Falcon rocket to a fixed point, with the goal of landing it safely for reuse, rather than the normal method of an ocean splashdown.

This is the future, with the potential to dramatically reduce the cost of getting into space.

Wish them luck, and keep your eyes on the news on Sunday.
