Musk’s SpaceX launches & retrieves first recycled rocket

SEE IT: SpaceX launches, retrieves first recycled rocket – NY Daily News

“This is a huge day. My mind’s blown, frankly,” Musk said. He called it an “incredible milestone in the history of space” and predicted, “this is going to be a huge revolution in spaceflight.”

Musk foresees dozens if not hundreds of repeat flights for a booster and rocket turnarounds of as little as 24 hours, perhaps by next year. Land, refuel and then back up again, with everything leading to one day putting humanity “out there among the stars.”

This particular first stage landed on an ocean platform almost exactly a year ago after a space station launch for NASA”
