    Space...rockets...camera....yes.

    SpaceX landed the first stage of one of its Falcon 9 rockets. It was the third time in a row that the company has landed one of these rocket boosters on a drone ship at sea, and the fourth overall. The landings aren't the only thing SpaceX is getting better at though — just now, the company posted this truly incredible footage of the landing taken from onboard the rocket.

    I'm a space buff, so I've been following this for a while but it's amazing but they've done so quickly.

    Being able to reuse these rockets is really a big step in the future of space exploration. The costs are substantially lower, and the turn around time is much quicker.

    They liken it to airplane travel. Imagine flying a plane once and then just scrapping it. Being able to reuse it makes the whole process so much easier.
