We had to wait a couple of days for it but SpaceX finally published a video of last week's successful landing of the first stage of its Falcon 9 space rocket.

This feat was an unexpected success as this was the hottest and fastest landing yet as the rocket first delivered a satellite into geostationary transfer orbit (GTO). With these high velocity missions, there's not a lot of fuel left after the main objective of the launch so the recovery of this rocket is quite impressive.
