Space X’s Falcon 9 falls back to Earth to The Blue Danube

Watch more with these video collections:

To the tune of Johann Strauss II‘s Blue Danube waltz, Space X‘s Falcon 9 falls majestically back to Earth in real time. Falcon 9 is a two-stage rocket that transports satellites into orbit, and powers the Dragon spacecraft up to ISS when delivering cargo and supplies.

Newer test versions of Falcon 9 are being developed for reusability. Watch this for a refresher: SpaceX’s “hard landing” on a floating platform.

Of course, The Blue Danube was famously featured in Stanley Kubrick’s 1968 classic science fiction film 2001: A Space Odyssey.

In the archives: More Space X.
