The SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket has successfully landed on its targeted drone ship after delivering a payload to the upper atmosphere! This is the third successful attempt by SpaceX to land on a drone ship.
Why is this cool?
This is cool because it allows for the continued outsourcing of private companies to help assist the International Space Station instead of having to rely on government money and resources.
Why should I care?
You should care because the more successful missions by private companies, the faster the privatization of space travel will become a normal occurrence such as flying in a plane!
Check out a video of the landing:
