Sept. 9 (UPI) -- Last month, the SpaceX Grasshopper reusable rocket performed an astonishing 300-foot lateral maneuver during a test flight, and new zoomed-out video shows just how incredible it was.

Not only is there a better view of the rocket performing its feat, but we can see its effect on the local livestock in the video aptly subtitled "Grashopper vs. Cows." But SpaceX assures us no cows were harmed in the making of this video.
