After a failed mission in June, SpaceX succesfully launched a rocket toward orbit and landed the leftover 15-story booster back on Earth on Monday. It was the first time a rocket returned to land vertically at Cape Canaveral in Florida - a tremendous success for SpaceX. The last time, the Falcon 9 rocket failed shortly after liftoff and destroyed a supply ship intended for the International Space Station. SpaceX spent months correcting the problem and improving the unmanned rocket.

It hopes to resume supply runs for NASA in February.
