Congrats to SpaceX on Ocean Landing

I used to write telemetry collection software for the Space Shuttle, rockets and balloons, but even I watched the SpaceX barge landing with disbelief as the rocket smoothly rotated in all 11 or so degrees of freedom at the same time – no hesitation or staging before the touchdown.

It was like watching a really big lawn dart plant itself. 🙂
