Masten Space Systems XA-0.1B-750 rocket vehicle takes off, translates off the pad, boosts, shuts of the engine, I have a heart attack and die, then it relights the engine and comes back down to the pad. This is the first time a VTVL rocket has relight the engine in flight, ever, in the history of the planet! Many angles for your viewing pleasure. In the last clip Ian Garcia is running the laptop and telling the rocket to fly, I, Ben Brockert am running the show and operating the super high-tech tracking antenna system, and Randall Clague steps in to congratulate. Thanks to Mike Massee for the first video.
