Man-god Elon Musk tried to do something amazing last week, and he almost pulled it off. His company, SpaceX, was going to fire a rocket, and then have it fly back down from 50 miles up and land on a floating barge so that it could be reused. "Close but no cigar," is how Musk puts it. He also said the rocket had "landed hard." Now there's a Vine that shows just how hard. To be honest, it's amazing that SpaceX even came this close. Elon Musk is 43 years old, and the greatest human being alive on the planet today.
