Here because of the SpaceX post on WaitButWhy.com? Hit like!
To my knowledge, this is the most complex and risky autonomous space mission that has ever been attempted. I'm still flabbergasted that it actually worked to perfection.

Whenever I see this again, I'm flabbergasted. When she landed, I stayed up into the deep night to 'whitness' it live. Absolutely awesome feat. It sadly also flabbergasts me enormously that there are actually a lot of people who don't 'believe' this has happened ! The average intelligence of mankind is indeed dropping fast...

This animation is a major salute to the power and imagination of science, which together with the Arts, make up the twin pillars of Western Civilisation. May that dark age pillar that is built on faith and superstition, fear and the irrationale, fall at our feet so that we may pursue the future in the way that this animation suggests is possible.
