SpaceX Falcon 9 successfully landed on a drone ship. It’s the first time in history such a landing has ever been achieved. Watch the video…
On 8th April 2016, Falcon 9 rocket, after four unsuccessful trials, and after sending its payload of a Dragon Capsule to the Space Station, proved that is capable of landing back down on a drone ship, in the Atlantic Ocean.
SpaceX CRS-08 mission, was launched from Cape Canaveral at 4:43 pm (ET).
Elon Musk hopes to re-use the first stage of its rockets and dramatically cut the cost of space travel.
