As the latest Falcon 9 Dragon rocket took off yesterday, history was once again made by SpaceX. While some headlines suggest that the "landing" bit of this mission was a failure - we don't see it that way. The first part of the mission was to send supplies to the International Space Station - that part is in progress. The second part was to successfully land the Falcon 9 back on an autonomous barge in the Atlantic Ocean - it succeeded, but also failed. While the rocket is damaged enough now that it cannot be reused, SpaceX has again come far closer than any other organization at landing like this in history.
