It's been a long road for SpaceX to finally get a rocket to launch and land safely, and this team seemed overjoyed when it all worked out

Back in December, Elon Musk's company SpaceX finally managed to launch a rocket and safely land. After several problematic attempts it was a triumph for the private company and a glimpse at the future of space travel for the rest of the world.

There's no doubt it all came about thanks to the amazing effort of a huge team of engineers, designers and more and this new video gives us an idea of the amount of work which went into the launch and also just how delighted those people were when the rocket managed to land.

Check it out.

The cheering at take off is itself well deserved but SpaceX had managed to get rockets off the ground before, so there's a real sense of tension as it comes in for the first potential landing in the companys history. After those words 'The Falcon has landed' it all starts to quickly look like a rock concert. And why not.
