For those of you with a love of Space Technology this year (and next) is packed full of developments. The big news this week was Space X's 'nearly there' attempt at landing an autonomous rocket (following the successful launch of a resupply payload to the ISS): If they succeed, the price of Space Flight is going to tumble as the first stage is >60% of the cost of any rocket and Space X is already one of the cheapest in the business. The rocket didn't get it's lateral velocity in check and tipped over a fraction of a second after it landed, despite correction efforts. Even so, this is a big achievement and it looks like the first successful landing could happen within the year. From the recovery ship (and rocket itself): From the barge: Like Space X? You'll love this: P.S. I love Space tech and follow a lot of the latest new. Would anyone be interested in me writing a longer post which covers some of the cutting edge stuff being developed at the moment?
