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 :-)

Thank you Pipedot for being here so we can discuss this type of article because other places don't give us the facility to do so.

Actually, this is quite an achievement and worthy of reporting. I wouldn't have seen it if it wasn't on |.
It's good to see that they are making progress.
