they did it again

SpaceX did it again! After launching a Falcon 9, and deploying JCSAT-14, they landed the rocket on their barge at sea. At night this time!

Interestingly, they were not confident, given the higher launch requirements for this client. Nevertheless, the Falcon, firing 3 engines, gently touched down. Two in a row! Well done.

I missed the launch but RASCals were chattering on Facebook this morning.
