You do know what rockets are, right? Well, there's this spaceflight company named SpaceX, which successfully landed a reusable rocket stage Monday in Florida. It's quite a big deal because building a rocket requires a ton of money, and if we're able to use it more than once, then it's obviously nothing short of a breakthrough. Check out the full story below!
The Falcon 9 rocket stage propelled satellites up to about 62 miles into space before the second stage took over. From here starts the breakthrough - the first phase successfully landed safely back on the ground directly on target. Now isn't that simply awesome!
Reusable rocket stages will help make private space operations more cost effective. That's why it's being touted as a breakthrough!
Merry Christmas to my readers.
