The Falcon 9's first stage motor is about to hover 263 feet (80 meters) above the ground in McGregor, Texas...on March 7, 2013.

Photo and Video of the Day... SpaceX's Grasshopper test vehicle rises again—this time to a height of 24 stories (262.8 feet, or 80.1 meters) above its launch pad at the Rocket Development Facility in McGregor, Texas. Consisting of a Falcon 9 first stage motor that is 110 feet (33.5 meters)-tall, the Grasshopper doubled its previous altitude in this demonstration...which took place last Thursday.
