WATCH: SpaceX Makes History With Successful Rocket Landing On A Barge
April 9, 2016
If at first you don't succeed, try, try again until you make history.
On Friday afternoon, SpaceX successfully landed its Falcon 9 rocket on a drone ship in the Atlantic Ocean for the first time.
"What was different about this [landing] is that the rocket landed instead of putting a hole in the ship or tipping over," Elon Musk, head of the private space exploration company, joked.
As humans venture farther into space, there will be benefits to landing a rocket in the water versus landing one on Earth.
