After all this time they get excited by something we easily did back in the 60s on the moon...heck we didn't even raise any dust or make a landing crater on the moon....

Okay, I was wrong. SpaceX did it last year.

Last night, they rocketed a capsule into orbit, probably a delivery to the ISS, and then landed the first stage of the rocket safely.

Yeah, it IS a big deal.  Bezos said "welcome to the club", but Musk had already landed a rocket.

If we can push stuff out to space for 1/100th or even 1/50 of the cost, imagine what kinda junk we can put up there... and get to the moon, mars, AND BEYOND!  Building big-assed space ships for planetary travel (interstellar?) would be a fraction of the cost.  Throw the materials up there, assemble it in space, then head out into the wild blue yonder... yeah!
