Less waste in space exploration

Posted in: Comment, News and Updates

It was good to see Egon Musk's Falcon 9 rocket return to Earth the other day by landing the right way up on a floating platform.  The video of it is here, along with a few clips of instances where this didn't quite go as well, and a nice explanation of the issues involved.  It's good to see this reduction in waste.  The manoeuvre reminded me of the comics I used to read as a boy when rockets always did this.  Nice to know that real technology has finally caught up with tech-fi.
