YES!!!!!!!!!!

I'm so happy that we are in this time.... and I have watched the first landing and first relaunch live!

These are things that I'm going to tell my kids over and over again (hopefully including when they book an affordable ticket to space)

Me too! I left work early, to come home and set up for watching this live.  This really is historic. The moment was tense, when the link dropped out, but when it came back, and there she was, standing tall & proud on the deck against the sunset - Wow! a genuine thrill.

Let's have a thought for the right-most grid fin which received quite a toasting upon re-entering the atmosphere. Amazing footage, until it cut out.

Yeah, I noticed that too. Hadn't seen that before. Glad it came through okay!

Here's a different take on things from North Korea:

So....I guess it is possible to land and re-fly an orbital class rocket.  What's next SpaceX?  :)

Glad I decided to stay up (it's 1:50AM and the kid woke me before 7AM today and will again tomorrow). Have watched essentially all F9 launches live no matter which ungodly hours they are. Have to say I was as frozen with adrenaline and heart going as I was post-CRS-7 RTF counting down the seconds until MECO.

History will remember 30.03.2017!

I just re-watched "SpaceX Launch You Up"  in observance of this historic moment.   8)

Definitely the board room wall ornament candidate for SES. ;D

That was awesome! Now can I get some volunteers to help me drag these goalposts?  They are getting really heavy!
