Watching those two big rockets come in to land simultaneously with no fuss reminded me that just a handful of years ago big rockets just didn't do that and it seemed pretty obvious that doing so would use a ton of fuel and not make any sense. But it turns out that empty first stage rockets, while huge, don't have to weigh that much and when empty don't need a ton of fuel to stop their fall. Who knew? Now SpaceX has made it seem totally normal for rockets to do that and it only caught my attention to see two landing at the same time right next to each other. They've changed my perception of what rockets can do.

And looking put over the hood of a car at the big blue marble we live on was pretty awesome too. And who doesn't love a good shout-out to Douglas Adams? Crazy people, that's who.

Watched it from Sebring about 90 miles away. I agree pretty spectacular but I like his batteries better.
