SpaceX Did What? Landed a Rocket on a Pinhead
In case you been living underneath the rock there are a number of private companies that are challenging the field of rockets. Okay, I'm making a very complex science simple but it's true, there is a race to see if we can get into space cheaply. Not only is the pursuit to put private 'tourists' in space for a relatively low cost, they're our own words and prizes available for companies who can meet certain criteria. Then there's Elon Musk entrepreneur extraordinaire. You might remember him from such companies as PayPal. He's do some amazing things with his company spaceX. The most recent accomplishment? Nearly landing a rocket that went out into space on a barge no larger than a quarter of the football field. Basically a rocking went to space and they try to landed on a tiny strip of the boat in the middle of the ocean. Don't leave me? These guys are not only legit but the also celebrating their mistakes, Assuming you can call this a mistake. Can't wait to see what comes next, this is human achievement and pioneering at its finest.
