“The Falcon has landed!”

The latest SpaceX mission to ISS marks a milestone in Elon Musk’s rocket and spacecraft company. A Dragon spacecraft, carried by a Falcon 9 rocket, delivered 7000 pounds of technical equipment supplies to the ISS. But the more impressive part is the first successful landing of the re-usable Falcon rocket after a mission – on a swimming platform.

Watching this clip reminds me of myself playing with rocket mockups in the sandbox, lifting off and landing the rockets exactly like that ;-)
