There’s something about this video that I find awe-inspiring. SpaceX’s Grasshopper rocket, which is a 10-story high rocket, recently had a successful test launch where it blasts off, hovers at the edge of space for a few moments and then slowly descends back to Earth and lands gently on the launchpad. The entire thing was filmed from a drone hovering over the launch spot.
