Space X did it

I remember my brother playing with his Major Matt Mason action figures and his home-made rocket. He would take it to the moon, then "fly" the rocket back to earth and it would rice home crazy that his rocket made of a carpet tube didn't come apart in stages. He thought it was so "unrealistic" that he had to just turn the rocket upside down and land it - all was even made worst when our older brother laughed at the way he landed.

I was pissed - I worked hours on that stupid carpet tube and he barely used it. Now, 40 years later, rockets do land that way!
