SpaceX Falcon 9 first stage landing attempt today

In a little over an hour, for the first time, a rocket stage may return from its primary mission of lofting a Dragon cargo capsule to the International Space Station, and set down gently under rocket thrust onto a barge floating in the ocean.

Who says we’re not living in the future? 🙂

Best of luck to everyone at Space Exploration Technologies today. These guys are on the verge of a Kitty Hawk moment for practical spaceflight. May today be the day!
