SpaceX makes me so happy.

I love watching SpaceX and seeing what they do. Not only did they successfully re-land the first stage of their Falcon 9 Heavy rocket, but they are set to do it again this Sunday, but this time on a drone platform in the Pacific.

Never before has any space agency done anything like this, and these folks are a private company!  Just look at the smiling faces and the excitement in this clip. It’s worth it, I promise.  These are folks like me, like all of us – smart folks, professional, they know their jobs well, but they are not the “steely eyed missile men” of yesteryear.

This is the future of spaceflight, unfolding before our eyes, and I am so happy to see it!
