lon Musk’s Reusable Rocket Launch
Elon Musk’s private space company, SpaceX, has been experimenting with reusable rockets since last year. Launch and landing video is been shot by a drone.
Because the cost of fuel is much less compared to the cost of building a rocket from scratch every time, Musk and his team are trying to master reusable rockets so they can get closer to their goal of making commercial space travel more affordable.

SpaceX will make its second attempt to send its Dragon spacecraft, carrying 4,000 pounds of supplies, on a Falcon 9 rocket (like the one in the video) to the International Space Station on its third resupply mission.
