Space Grasshopper

A hobby project worthy of NASA.

Grasshopper is a 10-storey Vertical Takeoff Vertical Landing (VTVL) vehicle designed to test the technologies needed to for rockets to fly themselves back to the launch pad, vertically (as opposed to falling back to earth nose first). It’s what South African/American entrepreneur, Elon Musk does in his spare time when he’s not running Tesla Motors, the electric car company.

This week’s Frandoms are by Derek Blais, senior art director, BBDO.
