Dang! I missed it, even though I knew it would be live streamed.

This is quite a feat, a real competition with SpaceX. I have followed both of these projects closely for many months, even get periodic updates directly emailed from my "good buddy" Elon Musk and associates. Seeing the concurrent landings of the 2 boosters from the SpaceX launch was so incredible! Blue Origin is going to be pretty amazing, also.

Meanwhile, here is a great video which shows the simplified version of the dynamics involved in launching/retrieving such vehicles as Blue Origin and the SpaceX boosters.
This fellow has a number of great ideas and models. What he has done with this "rocket" and its stability systems is pretty remarkable.
He knows how to explain things well. Enjoy!
