The Reusable Rocket is Finally Real

Vastly covered, nevertheless impressive engineering by the Blue Origin team that managed (in contrary to SpaceX) to bring back a rocket in one piece.
“The Shepard space vehicle reached thee edge of space at a suborbital altitude of 100.5 kilometers. The capsule then separated and touched down beneath a parachute but the BE-3 rocket also started its own descent. After the rockets fired at nearly 5,000 feet, it made a a controlled vertical landing at a gentle 4.4 mph.” Wicked!
