Falcon 9 has Landed!

45 min video of SpaceX’s Falcon 9, official launch name “ORBCOMM-2″, rocket launch. It was the first successful rocket engine return and landing for SpaceX, which is owned and run by Elon Musk. It was the 20th rocket launched and 4th attempted recovery of a rocket engine. The last 3 attempts resulted in the rockets being destroyed after failing to land on a automated barge out at sea. The rocket also delivered its payload of 11 communication satellites into space which can be seen at the end of the video.
