A “Rocket Eye” View Of The Latest SpaceX Landing

Jun 02, 2016 at 11:58 AM ET

This incredible “rocket eye” view was brought to you by SpaceX’s fourth successful rocket launch.

The video shows the first-stage of the company’s Falcon 9 rocket reorienting itself for landing.

The booster reaches a peak altitude of more than 100 miles above the earth’s surface.

The rocket then uses a series of precise reentry burns to put itself above the floating landing pad.

The landing is the third successful landing on a floating barge and the fourth overall for SpaceX.
