Last week SpaceX mad rocket launch history, re-launching a rocket that had previously used for an into-orbit launch, back into orbit and then landing it once again.

This launch made SpaceX the first company to succeed in reusing a rocket for an into orbit launch while remaining one of the only rockets to regularly land after into orbit launches.

If you watched the launch then you will know that the footage did cut out as the rocket came back to Earth for its landing, and the views weren’t very close up.

Thankfully, SpaceX has released some pretty amazing photos from the launch, not only providing us with a view of that awesome landing but also the rocket launch, with some close-up looks at that rocket goodness.

Check them out below.
