Wonder Wednesday

An amazing photo of SpaceX’s 20th CRS mission to the International Space Station, with both launch and the historic 50th landing of a booster:

Most amazing is this bit here, where you can see Main Engine Cut-Off, followed by stage separation, followed by Second Stage Engine Light, followed (and this is the super amazing bit) by first stage re-light and the boost back burn for its return back to land just a couple of miles away from where it started:

 

I can’t wait for the first crewed mission (just weeks away now!) and for tests on Starship to begin. Congrats to SpaceX!
