SpaceX Successfully Lands First Stage on Droneship

I’ve watched that video about a dozen times by now and it’s still a little mind-blowing. SpaceX accomplished a similar landing on land back in December, but this is even more impressive to me. I’ve watched several of the barge landing attempts live and every attempt would result in something happening at the last second that caused the stage to tip over.  They would always hit their target, but they couldn’t quite seem to stick the landing. I covered the difficulties of a barge landing in my last SpaceX post, so I’ll spare you the details here. For me, all of their failed landings on the barge only made the successful landing more incredible. Finally. They got it!
