On August 13th, SpaceX performed, filmed, and uploaded another test of their Falcon 9 test rig (which they call the Grasshopper). This time the rocket flew to a 250m altitude with a 100m lateral maneuver before returning to the center of the pad. And oh. Man. You guys, it’s SO COOL. I’m going to watch it eight more times.
