    ‘Yawn’. Elon’s gotten this to the point where if you’re seen one, you’ve seen ‘em all’.

    Which is the absolutely most amazing part of the whole thing.

    Yeah, and this is the 9th flight of that booster.

    Sure, it might be gettin’ a little ho-hum for some folks,
    but it don’t cost nuthin’ to post it,
    and it don’t take hardly no effort to not watch it,
    but it scratches my back-in-the-day itch.

    I’ll post the interesting and newbies’ launches, too.
    Should be some other dang-fools tryin’ to recover boosters soon

    Ars Tecnhica has a weekly rocketry newsletter that I subscribe to. (I don’t keep ‘em tho.)

    Here’s a link to the site where it looks like you can read it, and sign up for the newsletter.

    Long way around to say that this weeks edition mentioned (IIRC) a couple of rocket companies that are working on just that for their new birds.
