    Freakin' unbelievable! That drone ship is just a tiny speck in the ocean and the first stage just nailed the landing!

    I don't know, they didn't get it into the center circle.

    I thought it was pretty close to center about 10 feet from landing, then I think the barge moved under them.

    Congratulations to SpaceX. It's history in the making. We have so much potential as a species, especially considering we only put the first plane in the air in 1903. Now look what was done today, almost within just one person's lifetime!

    The problem going forward will not be with our leaps and bounds in the area of technology, but with the fact that we have limited humanity as a species and, as our technology surpasses our humanity, we will likely be in for some really big problems.
