SpaceX Tentatively reports soft splashdown

For those who haven't heard, SpaceX has been trying to develop a reusable rocket to lower orbital launch costs. They had a successful launch today, and reported that they thought the 1st stage had made a soft splashdown.

If true, then rocket science will have made one more small step in the journey to interplanetary colonies.  8)

This is excellent news.  I was really hoping they might have a live feed of the descent but no luck.  Since it was apparently successful hopefully they will post a video later.
