apparently a valve was stuck so there was a lag in the corrections, doh! soooo close! looks like they'll have a successful landing this year though, can't wait!

Wow, so close, incredible that they reached the barge with that accuracy. Only reason it landed squiffy was due to running out of hydraulic fluid for the guidance fins.

Incredible. The CRS 4 flight in mid September is the next fly back attempt. The NASA website said there are rumors they will attempt to land on a barge.

I think the plan is for the community to clean up it up.  Space X have repaired a few frames because we see a glimpse of the rocket with legs deployed so hopefully the rest is repairable.

I'm not sure I see the advantage over a conventional rocket.  Looks like the rocket bit still has 2 disposable stages so would still an expensive way to reach orbit.

you'd never be able to have a self-sufficient colony though because you'd be reliant on supplies from earth.  mars is way the better option, it has water ice and carbon dioxide in abundance so you can drink, make methane for rocket fuel and oxygen for air, the soil contains organics so you can grow stuff and you can also make concrete from it.

It makes me chuckle that they're completely copying space x's strategy on reusability: dollars per kg is key, make small incremental changes, start with the 1st stage and low earth orbit.

They could've done this years ago but decided to sit on the gravy train instead. This is why competition is a good thing, space x has forced them to get their act together or face losing launch contracts.

Since when did Mars have a blue sky.

Bought the audio book. Absolutely brilliant, best book I've, er, listened to for a long time. Scientifically accurate, easy to read and a plot that doesn't stop moving. 5 stars.
