It's been a long time coming with many setbacks. This is really cool, the Spacex Falcon 9 rocket managed to re-land where it launched from.

Mind=blown. At this rate it seems that if I save a reasonable amount of money over the next 40yrs, there's a serious possibility I get to do a space walk.

Hey, nations of the world, stop blowing your money on blowing things up and invest it in blowing us out into space.

It's seriously like.... way more awesome.

This is really important.
This helps us cut payload cost dramatically.
This could help get us to Mars.

Although this may not seem all that grandiose to many.... the fact is that this is huge in how the Space Industry will change because of this launch and landing.

This is a very jubilant day for us Rocket and Space lovers!!!!

This was a brilliant operation with a great outcome. It is very significant to those of us who are into private aerospace development.

Very impressive. Hopefully they've learned a lot about this successful run and can implement their findings to future launches.

I'd like to see an excessive amount of consecutive launches now

I think we are seeing a shift away from NASA to private space launches. Eventually I think the commercial space programs will overtake the government programs. Virgin Galactic also has some great ideas.
