A rocket that is three massive rockets strapped together and then delivers huge payloads to LEO and then lands all three rockets no big deal.

Fucking SpaceX, man. How does it work.

    This thing is so cool. Had a chat with @drasnor about the aerodynamics of a flying cylinder the other day, general behavior of how the grid fins work, the path, etc. So cool. Such math.

    The other night, I was drinking with Drasnor late into the night, and we were watching videos on Cytube. When this video came along, remembering the Falcon 9 landing situation, I had a snarky remark during the animation of the stage landing process, and I said simply:

    "Dat hydraulic fluid"

    And Dras, after a short beat, just replies

    "Yeah.. we added more."
