The SpaceX rocket descended through the clouds before landing right in the middle of the pad, a perfect landing after a rocky start. The rocket was supposed to launch Saturday but took off 9:38am Sunday instead because of a technical error. SpaceX CEO Elon Musk captioned the video on Instagram: 'Baby came back' The rocket has landed five other times successfully on sea platforms but this is the first time on land. This is the first SpaceX mission to take off from the pad, and the first in Florida since last September, when one of the company's rockets exploded on another Cape Canaveral pad, severely damaging it. It is also the third Space
