A fine bit of engineering in action.

A remarkable video released by SpaceX, the space transport company founded by Elon Musk, demonstrates a test of their latest rocket in action. Watch as the ‘Grasshopper’ soars to approximately 750 meters into the sky–it’s launch is captured hovering for a moment by a drone Hexacopter (another neat piece of technology in itself)– before it powers up its maneuvering thrusts and gently “floats” back down to land on its launch pad.
