Timelapse shows SpaceX rocket successfully landing at sea

NASA has released footage of the unmanned rocket SpaceX Falcon 9 making a third successful return to earth in under two months.

The timelapse footage from the onboard camera shows the rocket journeying back to earth and landing on an autonomous drone ship at sea.

SpaceX are testing ways to recycle boosters to lower launch costs, opening space to more people.

NASA is currently one of SpaceX's largest customers and uses the rocket to fly cargo to the International Space Station with the aim of sending astronauts next year.
