SpaceX give you three looks at its rocket’s night landing

The first landing after a GTO-class mission was not expected to be successful

Last week SpaceX stuck a night landing on its droneship, and now (just after Blue Origin posted a ridealong view from its reusable rocket) we’ve got some video of the event. Three slightly different angles from the ship show the rocket coming down, a difficult event this time because it was the first landing after a “GTO-class” mission, meaning geostationary transfer orbit. Anyway, all’s well that ends well, and we have some incredible night footage to show for it — check it out below.
