SpaceX does it again!

Those amazing rocket scientists at SpaceX have done it again!  Today they launched a Falcon 9 carrying the Formosat-5 satellite from Vandenberg Air Force Base.  Not only was Formosat-5 deployed successfully, but the Falcon 9 first stage was recovered as well, the 15th time a Falcon 9 first stage has been successfully returned for eventual reuse.  Nobody else can do this with a launch system carrying payloads to Low Earth Orbit.

Congratulations to SpaceX and everyone else involved!

Watch the launch here.
