[caption id="attachment_44832" align="aligncenter" width="640"][​IMG] Grasshopper[/caption]

Rocket engineers at  Space Exploration Technologies Corporation (SpaceX) of USA have been busy demonstrating how to do it like a grasshopper. The SpaceX grasshopper had demonstrated a 17.7 ft vertical flight in November; but within a month, the engineering team was able to make the grasshopper fly up to a height of ~130 ft vertically and get back down without tilting. The following video was shot in McGregor, Texas on December 17 showing the test flight. Be amazed by the power of Falcon 9 rocket and Merlin1D engine working together to advance engineering a step forward in space.
