Space X Falcon 9 Nails Return Landing

Remember those 1950's SciFi movies, where our hero's rocket ship would land on Mars or some other planet? The ship would touch down on it's fins, neat as a pin, then the travelers would climb down to their adventure. Well, turns out that kind of landing is actually *really* hard to do, but Space X has finally managed to carry it out successfully with their Falcon 9 rocket booster - paving the way for a truly re-usable commercial transport to and from Earth orbit.
