What SpaceX is doing with rockets is just too cool!  And they make it look easy.  Some might remember the trick of balancing a broomstick vertically from the palm of the hand.  Now substitute flame and thrust for the hand, and a 100 foot or so tall metal tube for the broomstick.  Then control the direction of the angle of that tube.  Linky:  http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2423168,00.asp
