Ok so we all know that SA’s Elon Musk is basically a real life Tony Stark dominating the tech world with his Tesla cars and solar factory, his Hyperloop travel concept and of course SpaceX…his private space company. The latter has been making headlines recently for attempting to be the first to send a rocket to space and then bring it safely back down to earth with a controlled landing. Musk nearly did it a while back, but failed at the landing. Well Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon, has come out of nowhere and successfully sent his own rocket to space and brought it back down safely with a vertical landing ready to be used again.
Pretty cool watching it slow down and then gently land in a vertical position.
Technically speaking it goes to near-space not actually in space and according to the those in the know Bezos didn’t actually beat Musk since the SpaceX rocket is not the same thing. Blah blah still a cool video.
Weird geek boners all round.
