SpaceX's Falcon 9 Reusable Rocket Rises to 1000m
My brain is still struggling to reconcile this footage of SpaceX's latest Falcon 9 Reusable rocket test. The cinematography for these test launch videos is amazing, especially the aerial footage tracking the rocket as it crosses the horizon (filmed by a multi-rotor copter). There's a hyper-realistic look to the video--partially because of how stable the aerial camera is, and also because of how slow the rocket is moving as it achieves 1000 meters. A reusable rocket is the central piece of SpaceX's next-gen spacecraft plans, which include a Dragon capsule that will eventually shuttle astronauts to the International Space Station. "No trampoline needed."
