In your face BlueOrigin. SpaceX landed its rocket for the third time
There is a comptetion between SpaceX and BlueOrigin but SpaceX ( again, for the third time ) proved that they are the king. ( By the way, there is only one thing to say: In your face, BlueOrigin )
Do you remember the Falcon 9? It was the rocket that was sent to the space and then land on a drone ship that was sailing on the ocean. SpaceX just landed Falcon 9 on the same platfrom after sending it to the space…for the third time.
The importance of this news is that it proves we can make reusable rockets and some millions of dollars.
