Last night, Elon Musk, the CEO of SpaceX, launched a satellite into space and then successfully landed the rocket back on California grounds. This was the first time SpaceX has landed a first-stage booster on the West Coast.
The Falcon 9 rocket could be seen gliding through the air, before breaking apart, allowing the satellite to continue into space and the other half to land back on Earth.
