The Falcon has landed

I referred to the reusable SpaceX Falcon 9 launch vehicle last week.

Here is a historic moment in space exploration: the return of the recoverable first stage of a Falcon 9 after delivering supplies via the (human passenger-capable) Dragon capsule, which will eventually become America's way of sending astronauts as well as supplies to and from the ISS, to Cape Canaveral.

And no. The video is NOT being run backward! This is Falcon 9's eighth successful landing in thirteen tries.

The time has come for private enterprise in space exploration.
