Watch SpaceX make history by landing on a floating drone ship.

SpaceX made headlines last week as they successfully landed their rocket on a floating droneship for the first time. Watch and be mesmerized by the fluid-like landing of the Dragon spacecraft. After repeated failed attempts at landing their previous aircrafts, SpaceX has been struggling to catch up with Amazon Founder, Jeff Bezos, Blue Origin aircraft.

    You’re terribly, terribly confused if you think SpaceX is trying to catch up with Blue Origin.

    SpaceX successfully launched and landed suborbital rockets a dozen times in early 2012.

    Blue Origin did that for the first time in late 2015, three years after SpaceX.

    Then SpaceX landed a rocket from orbital flight on land. And then they landed a rocket from orbital flight on a barge at sea. Blue Origin still hasn’t so much as put a rocket into orbit yet.

    North Korea’s space program, whicy is generally considered a joke, is more capable than Blue Origin. At least they’ve put a rocket into orbit.

    Another thing to note: whereas SpaceX does everything with live video coverage, Blue Origin does everything in secret. They never announce anything in advance – they always announce and release a video after the fact. They’re a private company with no ties to the government, so there’s no one they need to answer or be accountable to, but I strongly suspect that in addition to their few successful tests that they’ve shaded video of, they have numerous failures that they’ve kept secret.

    SpaceX, by the way, is actually a company with dozens of paying customers. Nobody trusts Blue Origin by placing orders with them. At least Virgin Galactic has people who have preordered flights to space – Blue Origin doesn’t even have that.

    SpaceX should be compared with NASA and Roscosmos – they’re a serious entity in space exploration, and with their current trajectory, they’re set to be the dominant force in it.

    Blue Origin can’t be compared to SpaceX. They’re a joke, to be mentioned alongside Virgin Galactic and North Korea.

      My comparison is based on launching and landing for the first time. SpaceX is way ahead in the race and I agree, should be on par with NASA. 🙂
