Blue Origin successfully launches and lands a rocket

Obviously the people in space part is not real, but dang, that rocket just came in at speed and landed it's little self with no apparent problem. Whoever wrote the code for those landing algorithms should get a raise.


  1. There is a significant interest in space tourism....and whatever the human mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve.

  2. All I can think of, is that guy in the white house....."you didn't build that....."
    Sorry about the downer statement; just in a irritable attitude today.

  3. I wish I could have been that smooth on the old Lunar Lander arcade game!

  4. SpaceX tasked the test guys in McGregor, whose job was to test the engines for all SpaceX vehicles, with setting up and doing the same thing shown here back in 2012 and 2013. See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grasshopper_(rocket).
