RocketLab are he guys who try to catch the booster stages of rockets. They fly large helicopters and try to snag the booster has it comes down in its parachute. The goal is to save the booster so that it can be used again.

This is not quite like catching a bullet in your teeth (which I can do, of course!).

This is more like catching a butterfly that weighs 90 tons.

It has to be a fun job, but SpaceX already has boosters that land themselves. Not sure who will win here.

But I am thrilled that multiple commercial companies are in this business, we will be mining space rocks very soon.
