An early morning launch of a Falcon 9 SpaceX rocket from Cape Canaveral was a success in more ways than one.
The rocket, which was carrying a communications satellite, not only launched safely, but landed back on Earth as planned on an ocean platform.
The idea behind bringing the rocket back is to save money in space travel and delivery services. It was the second successful launch and landing for SpaceX this year after several failed attempts.
SpaceX founder and CEO Elon Musk celebrated on Twitter.
