ICYMI: SpaceX redeems itself with a showstopper rocket launch

Wasting $50 million on satellites and rockets is so 2016.

Today on In Case You Missed It: SpaceX is back in launching mode after the FAA grounded the company following an unfortunate explosion last September. The rocket company successfully launched satellites from its revamped Falcon9, then the motor completed its landing on a SpaceX floating pad.

NASA Goddard released a video about its goals for earth science studies in the New Year and they mostly all point to studying climate change. Lastly, the last man of walk on the moon, astronaut Gene Cernan, died on Monday, leaving behind a legacy of being invaluable, even while working on the back-up team.
