Well, when it comes to landing rockets, it takes just that: a rocket scientist, and a lot of them, at that.
This video from SpaceX proves three things: rocket science is hard, rocket scientists don’t give up and rocket scientists have senses of humor.
The video shows off some of the many failed attempts at landing an orbital rocket booster on land and on sea. According to the video, it was never really “their” fault but rather acts of god and little nuances like a quick disassembly.
In the end, the scientists won and landed on both land and sea, and paint me impressed. I’m not totally sure what the color of impressed is, but that’s me.
