Historic video: SpaceX's Falcon rocket roars into space, then returns safely

This rocket roared into space, launching a package into space and then returns safely, standing up vertically in the same position as it left during the launch. This is a stupendous engineering feat! Watch the video, first the narration from the Wall Street Journal here to get a feel for what was done.

Then watch the SpaceX video below to see the entire flight.
