    Hope they can find a way to land the module better or you're going to be wearing your ass as a hat.

    Looks fake and overproduced. I want the video when they actually do this.

    Landing has been a proven technology for over 20 years. Space X is trying it with a larger vehicle on a moving platform. Not nearly as easy.

    Nothing new here.

    And this comment is right on.

    Sub orbital re-entry. :grad:
    I think the Space X deals that were successful just kind of went up and came down.

    Knowing Bezos, he probably congratulated the engineers for this accomplishment by hacking the budget in half and laying them off.
