Updates!

Alright,

So as promised, I'm giving everyone an update since the last time we 'spoke'. The last post I made was on the Falcon 9 landing on a drone ship, before then, the Falcon 9 landing on land. So it's actually been a long time.

So things have been going at warp speed. I can't believe it's already mid-April. My spring semester has been absolutely brutal. Definitely the most difficult semester of college I've ever had, however, the end is near. Actually, finals are less than two weeks away which is terrifying and exciting at the same time.

It's the second overall landing of a Falcon 9, however, it's the first landing on a drone. SpaceX has tried numerous times to land on a drone ship and all have ended spectacularly in a ball of fire... But with failure comes success. You see, engineers don't give up. Even though we may attempt to do the impossible, one of these times we'll figure out a way and this afternoon, the incredible launch operations and recovery team at SpaceX proved to all of us their true capabilities.

Now, to talk a little about sustainability. You and I know…
