SpaceX's experimental rocket Grasshopper, which can take off, hover, and land, reached a milestone this week, doubling its highest leap to date (24 stories or 80.1 meters (262.8 feet), hovering for approximately 34 seconds and landing safely). And this time it even had a lil man (Johnny Cash?) aboard.
