Watch SpaceX Grasshopper Rocket Reach New Heights In Vertical Takeoff and Landing

  • In a recent test, SpaceX‘s Grasshopper reached 820 feet (250 meters), tripling its March 7 leap. The 10-story Vertical Takeoff Vertical Landing (VTVL) vehicle was designed to return safely to the launch pad in a vertical fashion, rather than burn up in the atmosphere, as most rockets do upon returning to Earth.
