NASA Resupply Mission to ISS

Just watching the launch of a resupply mission to the ISS.

The first stage was jettisoned, fell back to Earth and made a perfect controlled landing on a drone ship out at sea.

Neat Cool

@Strat thanks for the heads up, just re-watching the launch and landing on http://www.spacex.com/webcast

The landing on the drone ship reminded me of something out of "thunderbirds" (minute 27) looked a little artificial.

Re: NASA Resupply Mission to ISS

I hear it is back and successfully landed on a barge.  It must have been a shock for the bobble  hats on the Grand Union canal.

Now Zen, but a +Net residue.
