Masten Space Systems Xombie rocket vehicle takes off with an alcohol/liquid oxygen engine, shuts the engine off in a fit of pique, and restarts it to land.

Very very scary if you're there and you built it. This is the first time anyone has ever successfully restarted a biprop VTVL rocket in mid-air.

Left camera is by Ken Brown, center is Tim Ellis who was in the second week of his internship, and right camera was one I sat on the concrete wall I was planning to hide behind if the rocket was to crash.
