Grasshopper now goes sideways

Thursday, August 15, 2013

Most impressive. Here's SpaceX's newest test of Grasshopper, this time moving to the side 100 metres instead of going straight up then straight down. Right near the end it looks like it's going to be a bit off centre, but it turns out that's just a trick of the eye and everything was done as planned.

For reference, this video showing a two-storey hop is from just nine months ago.
