Watch SpaceX’s Reusable Rocket In All Its Futuristic, Hovering Glory

SpaceX has been working on a reusable rocket since 2011, and things have been going pretty well for them. A few days ago, the company ran a successful test run of its Falcon9R rocket, and it looks like the future. Check out the video to watch it take off, hover at 3,280 feet, and softly touch back down to Earth. Whoa.

The next step for the Falcon is to include retractable legs that won’t be deployed until immediately before landing. There will be further Falcon tests to come, including some in New Mexico to do with unpowered guidance systems. We’ll be watching!
