SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket stuck another landing last week, making it three times now the reusable rocket has blasted off and arrived back safely on Earth. At the time, people following the launch on live stream had to make do with limited footage of the touchdown, but SpaceX has now given us a better look at its latest success, one it calls its “hottest and fastest” landing yet. The company released a video last night that shows the rocket settling down on its floating droneship from three different angles, showing as the Falcon 9 cuts its engines and maintains its balance to make a surprisingly gentle landing.
