    Looks to have been about 14" west of the target.

    To those of us who are old enough, remember when the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA, NASA predecessor) told us that kind of spacecraft landing was just science fiction?

    Actually during the NACA days take off's were almost science fiction in the USA. Our take off attempts really started to look like Willie Coyote ACME rocket duds. It really took us a while to get things moving. Even after we were on our way the mighty Saturn 5 had 1 engine launch failure in the first few minutes after leaving the ground on Apollo 13. I think Apollo 6 had a launch engine problem but I dont remember to much about that one. I think that was an un-maned flight.

    I really am impressed by the launches and returns that Space X has had. They to have had their own failures. Getting into space isn't easy. Maybe in another 50-75 years it might start to look like taking the family car for a drive.
