A Drone Ship – SpaceX Style

avengers-helicarrierSpaceX does things differently and there Drone Ship is probably the biggest one out there. Named amusingly, “Just read the Instructions” we can’t help wondering if SpaceX has a button which makes it slowly lift off out of the water to revel something a little more like the awesome Avengers AirShip. (right)

Ok sure it doesn’t fly but it does have a real work application of being right where it’s needed for a rocket to land on. None of the landings have gone according to plan yet, so far there have been 3 failed attempts but this is, in fact, rocket science!

The last attempt was to land Falcon 9 on it after deploying the Jason-3 satellite.
