No biggie... They've been doing this on Twilight Zone and Lost in Space since the 60s.

I'm sure Mr. Bezos' prior art seems a bit more recent.

Seriously though, why the uproar over SpaceX being an historic "first," when really it's just a "first" for them?

I get that it's the first to do so after launching satellites into orbit, and with a much larger rocket, but give credit where credit's due.

Because, according to people who say they know what they're talking about, doing the landing after actually reaching space and delivering a heavy payload is much, much harder and what the Bezos Phallus I team did was comparatively easy.

I'm pretty happy with both accomplishments. Also this is very old news, nearly a month now. :(

If I wanted breaking news I would visit a news site like The Guardian or a science site.
Unfortunately, I probably not be able to comment about the news topic or participate in moderation.
Hence the story is here :-)
