SpaceX founder Elon Musk released via Twitter on July 5 the latest video of the Grasshopper technology being tested at their facility in McGregor, Texas.

To reduce operational costs, SpaceX hopes to design reusable first and second stages that can be flown back to their launch pads.

In the June 24 test, the Grasshopper reached over 325 meters. That translates into 355 feet or a little over 1,000 feet.
