SpaceX rocket landing ‘close, but no cigar’

SpaceX’s attempt at landing a rocket on a barge in the Atlantic Ocean ended in failure this morning. After a successful launch, the uncrewed Falcon 9 rocket hit the drone spaceport ship (also known as a barge), but landed too hard, says SpaceX co-founder Elon Musk. The launch, which took place 4:47AM ET, was SpaceX’s fifth cargo resupply mission to the International Space Station — the cargo capsule, Dragon, should reach ISS on Monday morning. But the landing was the leg of the mission that was supposed to make history.

The European Space Agency has just announced in a series of tweets that it has regained contact with the Philae lander and is receiving data from the surface of comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko. The lander’s chaotic touchdown had left it partially shrouded in darkness and receiving less solar energy than the mission called for, and before contact was reestablished there was some doubt that Philae had enough battery to last until data could be retrieved.

Philae lander shrouded in darkness for most of the day after bouncy comet landing

It turns out that landing on a comet moving at 84,000 miles per hour is not without its potential pitfalls, and the Philae lander appears to have ended up in something close to an actual pit. In a mission update today, the European Space Agency said that early telemetry data and photos from the lander show that Philae came to a stop at the foot of a large cliff, something that poses problems for harvesting much-needed solar energy for the remainder of its mission. Agency officials said that the current position is only expected to get 1.5 hours of sunlight every 12 hour rotation on the comet, which is less than half of what was originally planned. The lander’s main battery cell is rated for 64 hours before the system relies on solar…

Good landing pages are designed to focus attention towards visitors engaging in one action.

A Showcase of Stylish Landing Pages

There’s been a common trend over the last few years for online services and products to focus on creating beautifully designed landing pages, and for good reason. You need to do everything in your power to help establish yourself, and show off your brand identity and product positively. If you want to show that your product is of a high quality and professional, you need to prove it by making sure that everything you produce is well designed – including your landing page.

The bar for what makes a great landing page is always being raised, and there are some impressive designs out there from the last few months alone. Landing pages that showcase their product or service effectively and – crucially – in an elegant, bold or visually creative way will come across as being professional, and will always pique the interest of a potential user.

I want to share some of my favourite recent examples of stylish landing page designs. Each site has taken a huge amount of thought, care and hard work to get the design just right. If there are any other creative, inspiring landing pages that you’d like to share, I’d love to hear about them in the comments below.
