Development at SpaceX goes rapidly. Grasshopper made a big step literally! They released two awesome videos.
In my last post A small step for a giant grasshopper I talked about scale and why Grasshopper looks much smaller on the video than it actually is. Well the SpaceX guys and galls found there own creative solutions to illustrate the point.
Elon Musk twitters:
To provide a little perspective on the size of Grasshopper, we added a 6 ft cowboy to the rocket.
Then we took him for a ride: 40 meter hover flight vid of the SpaceX Grasshopper test rocket
Cowboy riding the rocket no problemo
