Watch: SpaceX releases highlight reel of their most dramatic failures | SOFREP

In recent years it has become apparent that Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk is either a real world Tony Stark, using his futuristic technology to benefit the world, or our own Lex Luther hidden behind an excellent PR machine.  As he continues to unveil new technologies that promise to disrupt existing and often outdated industries (like the Hyperloop), one thing is for certain: it seems that this Musk fellow knows what he’s doing.

SpaceX in particular has seen unprecedented successes in the young field of private orbital flight, successfully sending multiple resupply missions to the International Space Station, and even more impressively, landing and reusing the stages of his rockets that are discarded on traditional platforms – a change that promises to reduce the cost of reaching orbit by a significant sum.
