SpaceX Rocket Landing: An amazing feat for modern engineering!

SpaceX Falcon 9 launch

On December 21, 2015, for the first time in history, mankind managed to land a rocket back on Earth. SpaceX’s falcon 9, after delivering 11 satellites, successfully made a controlled descent flight back home; something which had never been done before. A number of landings followed, with successful attempts at landing the rockets in the middle of the sea on drone ships! Needless to say, SpaceX is fulfilling the vision of Elon Musk, the amazing mind who founded it in 2002 as a civilian space company helping with cheap space travel and colonization of Mars.

SpaceX faced two failures: in January 2016, when attempting to land on a maritime platform, the rocket crashed. April 14, 2016, third attempt, still at sea, and the same result. This time, the Falcon 9 had touched the platform almost vertically before losing balance and crashing – An almost success!

However, that didn’t stop the ambitious space company. After the first failure on sea, SpaceX had already successfully landed a rocket on a drone ship on April 8, 2016, achieving a milestone that other space corporations can only dream of.
