SpaceX pulled off another rocket landing, the third in just under two months on Friday, May 27, 2016. The first stage of the unmanned rocket settled onto a barge 400 miles off the Florida coast, eight minutes after liftoff from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station and after delivering a satellite into space.
