They had a few "difficult" moments during the course of developing the technology, but I have to admit that nowadays they are just awesome. It's only a few weeks since I watched a perfect (one of many in the last few years) Falcon 9 launch, Stage 2 deplomyment and Stage 1 landing. They've come a long way.

Awesome is the word! You kinda get the feeling that when Musk says he's going to Mars, he's going to Mars! Go SpaceX!
