SpaceX wows world with a ho-hum launch of a reused rocket, landing it on a tiny boring barge

And so it begins........

When I started school we used a slate and chalk in the classroom. I was 12 when Apollo 11 was launched (it launched on my youngest brother's birthday and returned on the second youngest's one) and the technological advances I have lived through have been astounding. While the IT advances I have witnessed have been enormous, I believe that SpaceX launching, recovering and then reusing the same first Stage again has had the most or will have the most far reaching impact of all that I have lived through.

I don't think I will ever witness another event like this until a *"Warp Drive" becomes a reality.

*or a similar propulsion system that makes interplanetry travel like a bus trip between cities today.
