Blue Origin Successfully Lands “Reused” Rocket

Both SpaceX and Blue Origin have successfully landed rockets on the ground in the past few months. Despite the fact that latest SpaceX attempt was unsuccessful, it appear reusable rockets are the way of the future. This week, Blue Origin re-launched the same rocket they landed in November, and it too was safely recovered. This was the first reused rocket recovery in history. In other words, they’ve launched a rocket, recovered it, launched it a second time, and now recovered it a second time. Crazy!
