SPACEX. Company successfully lands reusable rocket onto a drone ship: “This was the fifth attempt in 15 months by SpaceX to land one of its rocket boosters on a drone ship; in each of the previous four tries, the rocket reached the ship successfully, but failed to stick the landing. During today’s landing, SpaceX staff members crowded around the company’s control room, and let out a roar of applaus when the rocket booster touched down. SpaceX has made one successful landing of a Falcon 9 booster in December 2015 — but that was on a landing pad on solid ground, at Cape Canaveral.”
