    matched Blue Origin's successful landing of a first rocket booster. Blue Origin only went sub-orbital while tonight's 2 stage falcon-9 successfully delivered 11 micro-satellites in low earth orbit. Space X went with a land return after the first couple of attempts on a barge out in the ocean didn't work out so well.

    its a really big achievement tonight and was much more complicated than what Blue Origin pulled off (doesn't change the fact they were the first though).
