  1. Try as it might, SpaceX hasn’t yet been able to successfully land its reusable Falcon 9 rocket without damage. Think it’s easier than it seems? Now’s your chance to prove it with a Flash game called SpaceX Falcon 9 Lander.

    The object of the game is to slow down the incoming rocket and land it on the floating platform – you know, just like in real life. Just like SpaceX, you’ll have to work the main thruster and guide the rocket in while keeping an eye on your fuel level.

    It’s quite difficult to get the hang of it but once you do, you’ll be able to land the rocket with ease. Good luck!

    Well I can't figure out what the trick is.

    It could be a sublime ad by SpaceX. If you can successfully land the booster on your 1st attempt you can apply to them for a job because it seems like the staff they have don't know how to do it. ;)

    anytime I got it to where it looks like it should land, it blows up anyways.
