American aerospace manufacturer and space transport services company Space Exploration Technologies Corporation (SpaceX) has released a stunning 360-degree video of the landing of the Falcon 9 rocket on a drone ship in the ocean.
Watching the rocket descend from above from the perspective of the ship is extremely surreal, the Verge reports.
Headquartered in California, SpaceX was founded in 2002 by former PayPal entrepreneur and Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk with the goal of creating technologies to reduce space transportation costs and enable the colonisation of Mars.
SpaceX plans to send an unmanned Dragon spacecraft to Mars as early as 2018.

It has developed the Falcon 1 and Falcon 9 launch vehicles, both of which were designed from conception to eventually become reusable, and the Dragon spacecraft which is flown into orbit by the Falcon 9 launch vehicle to supply the International Space Station (ISS) with cargo.
