We know most of our readers enjoy SpaceX and space in general, so we thought you'd enjoy watching SpaceX's reusable Grasshopper rocket launch to 1,066 feet and return to its launch pad.

The video was shot from a hexacoptor hovering above the test flight. The actual test flight took place June 14, but the video was just recently released for all to watch. The Grasshopper is part of SpaceX's push to make use of reusable rockets. The company believes that reusable rockets are the future of space travel and that they will reduce the price of traveling to space.

SpaceX's CEO believes that it will cost $500,000 to move a family to Mars by 2029. Would you be willing to pay that?
