Rockets and Cows - Nowhere But Texas!

Check out the latest test of the "Grasshopper" reusable rocket in McGregor, Texas.  This rocket, from Elon Musk's SpaceX, takes off, flies to the side a bit, hovers for a little while, then returns to the exact spot it took off from.  Pretty impressive. 

They threw in a small cattle stampede and a flock of birds just for good measure too. 
No word on how the bar-b-que was after the test.
