Falcon 9 Stage One

Stage one of a Falcon 9 Space X rocket now rest on the docks of the Los Angeles Harbor. The rocket flew in to space earlier last week, and successfully landed back on a special Space X drone ship named, "Just Read the Instructions," in the Pacific Ocean. Space X hopes to clean-up and re-use the rockets to make more frequent trips in to outer space.
