On Monday night, a historic landing took place by Elon Musk’s SpaceX rocket at Florida’s Cape Canaveral.

According to the Los Angeles Times, it was the company's first launch since its unmanned rocket carrying cargo to the International Space Station exploded on June 28.

This landing marks a big step towards using reusable rockets and no one else in history has ever landed a rocket that has gone as deep into space as the Falcon 9.

According to The Verge, this is not the first time a vertical take-off rocket has landed upright after launching into space. In November, Jeff Bezos’ private spaceflight company Blue Origin announced that it had landed its rocket New Shepherd

SpaceX is also looking into reusing their rockets, which may force change into the future of the space industry. SpaceX’s CEO, Musk, noted that it costs $16 million to manufacture the Falcon 9, but only $200,000 to fuel. That eliminates a $16 million expense that could drastically bring down launch costs.
