Video showing Spacex came very close to a successful reusable rocket first stage landing

SpaceX came close to successfully landing a first stage rocket April 14. This would enable reusable rockets.

SpaceX tried to bring the first stage of its Falcon 9 rocket back for a soft touchdown on an “autonomous spaceport drone ship” in the Atlantic Ocean during Tuesday’s successful launch of the company’s robotic Dragon cargo capsule toward the International Space Station from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.

The next drone-ship landing attempt will come during the launch of the next Dragon resupply mission, Koenigsmann added. That flight is currently scheduled for June 19.
