photo Elon Musk/SpaceXElon Musk’s SpaceX rocket makes history! On December 21, 2015, The Falcon 9 successfully deployed 11 satellites into low-orbit and then landed back at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida making it the first reusable rocket to enter space and return to earth! The trip took a little over 10 minutes.

Check out the video of the perfect landing:

Unlike the Falcon 9 which is for cargo and satellites, the Blue Origin rocket is for one day carrying passengers.
