By now, SpaceX landing one of its Falcon 9 rockets (or even landing two, for that matter) is barely worthy of a headline. But late this afternoon, Elon Musk's rocket company successfully launched and landed a Block 5 Falcon 9, the newest, most powerful, and most important version of SpaceX's flagship rocket.
The Block 5 is a big deal for SpaceX because it's the culmination of the entire Falcon 9 project. Not only is it the most powerful version of the Falcon 9, it's also the most highly reusable model, and it's going to be the rocket that takes humans to space for NASA.
