SpaceX Grasshopper marks another advance

If it seems like I've talked a lot about the Grasshopper, it's because I have.  I've probably mentioned it on this site more than just about any other single project.  Part of that is how revolutionary it would be to develop a fully reusable rocket.  But mostly, SpaceX just keeps churning out incredible videos of its test flights.  In this latest test, the Grasshopper rises to a height of 250 meters, and then hovers stationary against the wind.  After a few seconds seemingly frozen in the air, it slowly descends back to the launchpad.  Check out the video above for the full experience!
