rickyslashdot writes: GREAT video of launch, 1st stage landing, Geosynchronous injection, etc. Elon Musk seems to be really pushing the limits of the envelope for reducing orbital injection costs with re-usable 1st stage assemblies — going to be interesting to see if the re-use actually works — coming this fall (November). > A static, full-duration, test-burn of a landed 1st stage has already been performed for performance / reliability testing. https://t.co/Zy4WRqW2kw Video gets a bit boring waiting on the 1st orbit of the assembly before the GTO burn of the 2nd stage re-ignition (17 minutes or so), but overall a great video on the COMMERCIAL state-of-the-art in orbital launch technology. NOTE: you can skip over the 'coasting phase' without missing anything! Fourth SpaceX Rocket Successfully Landed on A Drone Ship https://www.youtube.com/watch?...

Another launch video — CRS-9 (Space Station Re-Supply Mission) — with some misc info about the MANNED Dragon capsule — due for launch next hear (2017). https://www.youtube.com/watch?... Current successful landings are greater than the losses — and will only get better as the learning curve resolves the issues involved in the failures.
