Rocket Lab successfully brings rocket booster back to Earth after space launch

Small satellite launch provider Rocket Lab launched a rocket and successfully brought it back to Earth using a parachute after delivering the payload in orbit. Reusing the first-stage booster or the rocket has the potential to greatly reduce the cost of space missions, especially satellite launches. SpaceX first demonstrated recovery of its Falcon 9 rockets in 2015 after several failed attempts.

From the guys who lose multi million dollar payloads because they don't understand how relays work... Congrats though.
