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.

+William Colon Talk about an infuriating read...  Makes me want to barf.  Bunch of whiny crybabies that don't want to admit that they got caught with their pants down by SpaceX and other private space companies.  That they failed to think outside the box and are being shown up and look like greedy closed minded ignorant fools.  Statements like these don't help.

Since when did Mars have a blue sky.

Actually, the first pictures sent back on the first day the first time we sent an unmanned craft to the moon, before they were edited for the public, were actually showing a light blue sky! You can use one of Newton's Laws to determine a planet/moon's gravity, which requires factoring that planet/moon's neutral point, the point where the Earth and that planet/moon's gravitational forces equal out. NASA has always claimed it to be one distance, which when factored into the equation does equal 16% like they say. However, on one of the tapes of one of the later Apollo missions, the crew are recorded transmitting back to Houston that they're floating at the neutral point at X miles out. However X wasn't the number NASA's always claimed it to be! Factor in that correct number, and you have the REAL gravity of the moon... approximately 64%! More than enough for an atmosphere! Same thing with Mars! What we know versus what we think we know is pathetic! :)

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.

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.

This is the first time a rocket has performed a controlled descent back to earth. History in the making.

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.

Until someone tries it and fails then I still believe. 

Maybe someone should try it...

Wow
 
I've been looking at this picture all morning, and I can't stop. It inspires me.

I know it's "just" a bunch of rocks and dirt, but it's in high definition, in colour, and on the surface of Mars.

Thank you, +NASA and +NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory for reminding us humans that we're capable of doing truly incredible things.

And for the science. Thank you for the science.

...SCIENCE!
