Want to understand how hard it is for SpaceX to land its rocket? Try this game!

By now I am sure you have likely watched the failed landing attempts that SpaceX has tried with their Falcon rockets this year or if you are like me, you have probably watched them a few dozen times.  Well, if you want a real understanding of just how difficult it is to land a rocket on a floating platform like they have been attempting, then I have found a game that will show you just how difficult it is!

This new browser based game called SpaceX Falcon 9 Lander (no affiliation with SpaceX) has you attempting to land a rocket standing up on a barge and let me tell you, it is not easy!  In fact, you might just rage quit before you ever successfully land one.  Seriously, if its not perfect, it will blow up.

I’m getting better at it after a few hundred attempts but it is still a real challenge, especially depending on just what angle the rocket comes in at.  Below is a very short video to give you an idea of just what you are in for with this game.

Let me know in the comments below how you do with it!
