Click here to watch two boosters of SpaceX’s Falcon 9 Heavy Rocket land on Cape Canaveral’s launch pads! It’s such an incredible feat, something they had to practice multiple times before getting it to work. When they do land the empty rocket, they’re saving over $50 million everytime! (You can also youtube the failures exploding upon landing – educational as well – you can show your students real-life examples of engineering retests.)
