SpaceX Is One Step Closer To Space Exploration After Successful Landing

Elon Musk and his team of budding techies at SpaceX have successfully launched and landed their Falcon 9 rocket from Earth.

Needless to say there was a lot of cheering coming from Cape Canaveral as the rocket made it’s voyage into low Earth orbit before deploying 11 OrbComm satellites. Musk should be quite chuffed too as the latest effort by SapceX with an upgraded rocket design had worked flawlessly through the entire critical sequence.

Given that rockets such as the Falcon 9 can now reignite and return to Earth, affordable consumer space exploration may well be on the cards in the future.
