Grasshopper 744m Test | Single Camera (Hexacopter)
Published on Oct 12, 2013

On Monday, October 7th, Grasshopper completed its highest leap to date, rising to 744m altitude. The view above is taken from a single camera hexacopter, getting closer to the stage than in any previous flight.

Grasshopper is a 10-story Vertical Takeoff Vertical Landing (VTVL) vehicle designed to test the technologies needed to return a rocket back to Earth intact. While most rockets are designed to burn up on atmosphere reentry, SpaceX rockets are being designed not only to withstand reentry, but also to return to the launch pad for a vertical landing. The Grasshopper VTVL vehicle represents a critical step towards this goal.

Grasshopper consists of a Falcon 9 rocket first stage tank, Merlin 1D engine, four steel and aluminum landing legs with hydraulic dampers, and a steel support structure.

Ahh... cool vids.

Thanks bunches.


Is amazing how we've progressed so far in technology that we've actually achieved 1950's sci fi level of getting rockets to land vertically.

Fathom the hypocrisy of a government that requires every citizen to prove they are insured... but not everyone must prove they are a citizen

Musk was attacking 80 year old Senator Bernie Sanders @SenSanders for tweeting
We must demand that the extremely wealthy pay their fair share. Period.

Elon Musk @elonmusk replying to @SenSanders
I keep forgetting that you’re still alive

Mr Musk, who had become the richest person in the world with a current estimated personal wealth of $271bn (£201.6bn), was called out by Twitter users who said his tweet was “excessive”.

Brian Altano, a video producer, said Mr Musk could “even pay a little every month, like how you pay your child support.” Musk is well known for dumping his many children, wives and girlfriends.
