I've said this before, although not in this thread...as a nation, we have led the way in space exploration.  With all the programs, and all the flights, it is amazing that only 17 astronauts have lost their lives on official missions.

Pretty amazing to see this concept finally work.  Being able to re-use a booster like that one will be a major step forward in cutting down the costs of launching payloads into orbit.
