Don’t forget the successful latest landing on Mars by NASA’s new InSight mission, which will search for marsquakes and measure heat flow from the interior of the red planet.



And New Horizons, on its way out of the solar system, flying past Ultima Thule, a contact binary “dead” comet nucleus, the farthest object in the solar system to be visited by a spacecraft.

The core booster landed correctly on the offshore platform this time. Unreal.

They're talking about reusing these boosters for the Orion Crew Capsue launch later this year.

Video feed keeps cutting out on the barge just before landing. Must be a vibration thing

Booster fell off the barge in high seas.

They didnt have a locking robot for this motor type yet.

Hopefully at least the motor can be reused.
