SpaceX Releases Beautiful 4K Rocket Footage

Elon Musk’s astronautics company SpaceX has released a gorgeous two-minute supercut of Falcon 9 rocket launches in glorious 4K. The editor of the video pulled out all the tricks – HDR, slow-motion, and late zooming – though the obnoxious techno soundtrack seems an odd choice for footage so majestic.

SpaceX has a further Falcon 9 launch scheduled for this coming Monday, with the rocket designated to deliver cargo to the International Space Station. After it drops off its shipment, the Falcon 9, designed to be reusable, will attempt to make a successful landing on an autonomous sea platform drone, a feat which, after two attempts, no Falcon 9 rocket has so far completed.
