The stuff that means something

Elon Musk - SpaceX, Tesla, Solar CityWatching SpaceX and their the Falcon 9 first stage come back was the biggest event I have seen I a long time that really shows how times are changing. Elon Musk has been going stong not only SpaceX, but in all his ventures including Tesla and Solar City.

In the book released in May “Tesla, SpaceX, and the Quest for a Fantastic Future” his ex wife Justine Musk was quoted saying “I do think of him as the Terminator. He locks his gaze on to something and says, ‘It shall be mine.’ Bit by bit, he won me over.” The guy impresses a lot of people like his Model S does. He has a drive like no other and has pushed himself to the limits of even breaking the bank just to gain it all back. The landing was beyond impressive especially for the size of the first stage rocket.




Jeff Bezos did it at Blue Origin with their New Shepard vehicle in November (Here). Comparing the SpaceX and the Blue Origin rockets is like night and day. The Falcon 9 was like watching a space movie.

Check SpaceX full live broadcast below.

I set the video to play right at the explanation of how difficult is attempt is and goes right in the cheers of the crowd as it happened. If you want to watch from the beginning rewind it.

Peace

New Shepard the suborbital rocket by Blue Origin made history yesterday  with a successful soft landing at their west Texas Launch site. It was lunched flew into space and reached an altitude of 329,839 feet (100.5 kilometers) to return and land upright. New Shepard is a suborbital manned rocket used as a commercial system for suborbital space tourism. 

After the event Jeff went to twitter and said:


There is some back and forth jabber between Jeff Bezos and Elon Musk about the specific accomplishments and it takes a Twitter user to help sort out the poking.
Nonetheless, the video footage is pretty impressive. I can’t wait to see what else is coming our way in the future.

Good job New Shepard
