SpaceX’s Falcon 9 lands ‘nicely vertical’ within 10 meters of target … in the ocean


And that’s how it’s done.

SpaceX’s Falcon 9 came back to Earth after a successful launch today, landing in the ocean within 10 meters of its actual target. And though it didn’t make the platform as originally intended, the company thinks that absent rough weather, the rocket have worked as planned.

“Rocket soft-landed in the ocean within 10m of target & nicely vertical,” tweeted SpaceX CEO Elon Musk. “High probability of good droneship landing in non-stormy weather.”
