Anamorphic illusions or anamorphosis — You've almost certainly seen it: the effect, street art when you need to approach the particular viewpoint to view accurately view space from the art that would otherwise look like contorted. When you look at it from the vantage point the art transforms into a seamless three- dimensional picture that appears to float away from the wall and somehow hang in space. It dates back to the early 15th century but enjoys a recent resurgence in the retail advertisement, signage, and urban art. Nowadays, it has improved into 3d footages with super technologies.
d'strict Holdings Korea
d'strict - is a global top-tier design company that creates a user-centered experience by integrating both content and digital media technology recently finished installation of what is being called the world's largest anamorphic illusion in SMTown COEX K-POP building, the biggest digital billboard in South Korea.
d'strict's newest project - "Wave"
A minute-long wave-crash clip on Korea's largest aerial display at Coex K-pop Artium has become the city's discussion, attracting both local and foreign media attention. The illusion has appeared as a giant wave in a large tank on the LED facade of the SMTown Coex Artium which named as public media art #1_wave. It makes the display panel look like a massive glass container holding water. The curved display enabled this effect feasible, but the design and implementation took and over three months to produce and the whole process has taken four months to complete from beginning to end, with three months of digital design activity to ensure that the intended result was accomplished.
Largest billboard Face in Korea
The mega-size LED screen creates a crashing giant wave taking up the sprawling persistently which displays for 18 hours a day. And the billboard reaches 80.9 meters in width and 20.1 meters in height and said to be roughly enough to fit four basketball courts.
d'strict specializes in the creation of site-specific interactions utilizing a variety of multimedia techniques. For the construction of Gangnam, the developer used a collection of anamorphic distortion techniques to portray the effects of giant waves. The reason the impact happens is that it is made up of different viewpoints to develop a feeling of space with no distortion.
Titled "WAVE," the concept was developed by d'strict — an organization specialized in the use of digital technologies to produce public art.
The CEO of d'strict, Lee Sung Ho said that LED displays are normally installed in bust urban wears and they felt that witnessing a surreal scenario in the midst of high rise buildings will attract public interest. "We intend to have nature 's motivations going forward so that residents can feel regeneration in the city as well," he added.
The business development director at d'strict said that they want to create overwhelming experiences, and waves are beautiful and dynamic in themselves but they chose them as their subject because they evoke feelings of comfort which is much needed now.
Social networks divide whether it was calming or stressful.
Social Media Attention
One Twitter user found it slightly stressful when he saw it before felt they were storm time waves that would break the glass anytime and he also said if slower and liquid gold or silver, may have been a different feeling. "Love water but this was stormy" he tweeted. Another user said whether watching waves is de-stressing then she has been watching tsunamis for a week and it was fun.
Beachside vacations seemed like a distant memory during coronavirus lockdowns, but d' strict holdings brought the ocean to the city in Gangnam District in Seoul.
The billboard facade is a common outlet for a marketing initiative, K-pop videos and, more recently, visual public art. Coex is situated in Samseong-dong in Seoul and was established in 2018 as Korea's first free outdoor advertisement zone, which ensures that there is no limit on the size or form of ads permissible on billboards. The giant screen was installed in March 2018 by Samsung Electronics, CJ Powercast, and Korea International Trade Association.
In summer 2019, Sila Sveta - an innovative technology design company and foreign experts in the field of multimedia immersive experience and CJ Powercast - part of CJ Group (It comprises numerous businesses in various industries) collaborated for "Smart Project" and created digital artworks for SMTown COEX Media Facade.
And here is the mother whale and baby whale - calf appeared from the billboard facade in 2018.
Sushant Singh Rajput was a 34-year old Indian actor with a powerful presence on the big screen, was found dead at his residence in Mumbai, died of asphyxia due to hanging. The police revealed the actor was battling depression. They were found meditation meant to treat depression. However, no suicide note was found at the scene. It is no longer a secret, everyone knows about this news for sure, but I like to take a moment to talk about the reason for his act.
Why did he make that decision? When talking about Sushant what did he lack in his luxurious life?
He was considered as one of the most promising actors in Bollywood and even Prime Minister Narendra Modi had considered him as a ‘bright young actor’ in his commiserations.
The Net Worth of Sushant Singh
His net worth about INR 59 crores also known to charge INR 5-7 crores per film. He owned various luxury vehicles such as Land Rover Range Rover SUV, BMW K 1300 R motorcycle, and Maserati Quattroporte according to reports. This is not everything. He also owned a piece of land on the moon. As a person who seems to be interesting in space stuffs he often post space- astronomy related posts on Instagram bought the property located on the far side of the moon in a zone called the Mare Muscoviense(sea of Muscovy) from the International Lunar Lands Registry.
Sushant's luxury apartment in Mumbai, and his pet dog Fudge, popularity and money didn't seem to keep him happier. We can see many actors and idols take their own lives nowadays. But they have everything in their lives, everything that we dream of owning one day. They got everything except one thing. Emotional freedom, and happiness.
People talk about his death in social media
I heard society blame those people who take their own lives in social media. The social media platforms are still filling with insensitive comments over why the actor 'committed suicide' when seemingly had everything in his life going right for him. " People who commit suicide are idiots, especially those rich people. They have everything. What more could they ask for?" But I hope the suicides of these people just make you realize that no amount of money, success, or fame can bring you peace of mind.
This is not the first incident that hit me. In 2027, one of the best vocals in south Korea, Kim Jonghyun also was battling from depression took his own life, 18th Dec a great star in the KPOP industry was extinguished. That day I cried my eyes out since I am his die-hard fan. Until then I haven't known how serious and real things depression can become.
Every person could be suffering from depression without knowing it. Because it doesn't show out. What people never understand is that depression isn't about the outside; it's about the inside. We can't tell just looking at someone what they are dealing with inside, because those people look happiest and they have the brightest smiles.
What is depression?
It is a condition that causes people to suffer and to die at last unless it is treated. Depression doesn't always appear with serious problems. It can appear with a tiny useless simple thing. How many of you make fun of your own friends ironically? About their appearance, family issues, poverty, and other matters that related. How many of bully your friends, classmates? How many of you make others' lives difficult without thinking how low it could be. These situations may bring depressions to those people.
" You've gained fat, you became ugly, you have a darkened skin, you're not looking like before, you look older than your age, don't you have a job? you're not as successful as the people in the same age as yours, You're aging, why don't you get married? It's been quite a while since you got married, when are you going to have babies? are you barren? How much do you earn, Why do you still live in a rented house? Why don't you buy a house?
These useless questions bring the hell out of the ground to the surface, especially for Asians. This could be enough to make people overthinking and depress them. It brings sleep deprivation. When a friend becomes alone when a friend who was with you together suddenly changes, what do you think? You think that they no longer wanna be friends with you or they don't need you in their lives anymore because he may have succeeded, or they found new friends.
Why don't you think about its opposite side? He could be gone in the wrong direction. He may have no one to talk to. sometimes it could be your fault. Your actions, your words could have put him there. Why don't you think broadly? You're looking for the cause of Sushant Rajput's death, just think how many people did you give a reason to die to? You don't need weapons to kill people, one word could enough to become poison for them.
What can you do for those people? Give them e reason to live instead of a reason to die, just listen to them - their story they want to talk about instead of advising them, judging them. Before making the justification of your actions, before trying to make them bad man just try to understand from their perspective, otherwise, you would be guilty after hearing your friends' death news.
Symptoms of depression can vary from mild to severe.
Feelings of helplessness frustration and misery sad or having a depressing mood
Loss of interest in passion once enjoyed
Changes in appetite and weight changes
Insomnia or oversleeping
Feeling fatigued and loss of energy
Physical pains and aches
Thoughts of death or suicide
We can't guess what cause Sushant Rajput's death exactly the only thing we know is that reason led him to his final steps and he is no longer with us. We cannot see his smile alive again. Even though he had lots of colleges and friends in the industry, at least his family couldn't save him.
I mentioned above that he had not left any suicide note. Leaving suicide note behind is a common thing. People say their final goodbye to their loved ones through suicide notes. But Sushant didn't leave anything related like that, which wonders me how helpless could he have been so long. The only thing we must do from now on is paying attention to our loved ones more and help them, listen to them without judging, loving them, and stay with them whatever happens.
Just looking at his pet's actions may bring your tears down for sure. That poor thing looks totally depressed and broken. There are some videos and images of his black labrador - Fudge's reaction after his owner died has been going viral. Fudge is seen laying on its bed and whenever it hears someone running towards the door hoping it will be him and returns disappointed. It is something heartbroken to see.
Social media was flooded with condolences for Sushant Singh
The ill-timed death of the actor has become a shock among celebrities in Bollywood town, colleagues, friends, and fans alike. Lots of actors and politicians from across the nation have shown their thoughts online to share their grief and sorrow with the unfortunate bereavement of the young actor. From industry colleagues to friends and fans who started posting pictures with the late actor, everyone recalled their memories and association.
I knew the pain you were going through. I knew the story of the people that let you down so bad that you would weep on my shoulder. I wish Iwas around the last 6 months. I wish you had reached out to me. What happened to you was their Karma. Not yours. #SushantSinghRajput
Sushant Singh Rajput...a bright young actor gone too soon. He excelled on TV and in films. His rise in the world of entertainment inspired many and he leaves behind several memorable performances. Shocked by his passing away. My thoughts are with his family and fans. Om Shanti.
He loved me so much...I will miss him so much. His energy, enthusiasm and his full happy smile. May Allah bless his soul and my condolences to his near and dear ones. This is extremely sad....and so shocking!! pic.twitter.com/skIhYEQxeO
I’m in a deep state of shock.
No matter how much I think about it, I don’t have the words.
I’m totally devastated.
You've left us too soon.
You will be missed by each and every one of us.
My deepest condolences to Sushant's family, loved ones, and his fans. 🙏
Honestly this news has left me shocked and speechless...I remember watching #SushantSinghRajput in Chhichhore and telling my friend Sajid, its producer how much I’d enjoyed the film and wish I’d been a part of it. Such a talented actor...may God give strength to his family 🙏🏻
"Mahendra Singh Dhoni went to isolation mood after hearing the news of Sushant's death, even he is not talking to his family members", his manager said. "We can't even believe what has happened. I am not in a position to express my grief. Mahi is also very shocked. What a tragic incident."

Dhoni and Sushant became really close as he starred as M.S.Djoni in the movie named The untold Story which based on the life of former Test, ODI and T20I captain of the Indian national cricket team, Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
I would like to tell you one last thing. If suicide ever crosses your mind, just know I would rather listen to your story than attend your funeral. Depression is not a joke. It's not something to fascinate about. It's a disease that affects human mental health directly. You may see that person is smiling and laughing and he could be dying inside. This disease is worse than all because people don't consider it a disease until the depressed person kills himself.
There's no doubt, whoever is reading this definitely a huge fan of Tin Tin for sure. We all could recall this young guy's face along with copper-colored hair. I'm so sure all of you guys know him, but I'd like to introduce him once again.
So, who is Tin Tin?
Tin Tin is a young journalist, adventurer, and a traveler who becomes involved in dangerous cases in which he takes heroic action to save the day. If he sees something suspicious, he has a habit of chasing it until the matter seems solved. Even he's not a muscular guy he doesn't fear anything - and always jump into the daredevil situations. Sometimes we cannot even say what exactly happens - whether that adventurous situations chase Tin Tin or Tin Tin chases those situations. And his instincts seem to find everything around him suspicious, I think his job leads him to them. The Adventures may make Tintin hard at work in his investigative journalism and always give the best, interesting news to report.
Tin Tin's Companions
Snowy, a white Wire Fox Terrier puppy, is Tintin's loyal companion who always stays beside Tin Tin. Tintin's best friend - Captain Archibald Haddock (Capitaine Haddock) is a Merchant Marine sea captain and he was introduced in The Crab with the Golden Claws. Haddock represents in the first instance as a weak and alcoholic character who always lose consciousness but later became genuinely heroic and even a socialite. Even though he has a hot temper some times he surely is a good friend to Tin Tin.There are also some other characters around him in the series. Professor Calculus - a partially deaf physicist, Thomson, and Thompson - two incompetent detectives who look like identical twins, only discernible difference being the shape of their mustaches. These are the characters that can be seen alongside Tin Tin in his adventures.
who created Tin Tin?
Georges Remi was a Belgian cartoonist known by the pen name Herge created the character Tin Tin. The Adventures of Tin Tin became one of the most popular European comics of the 20th century. It had been released in more than 70 languages and sold out more than 200 million copies, and has also become the source for TV series and film. Now I'm back to our topic again, what if this young journalist comes to Sri Lanka? Where would he go? what would he do? What kind of adventure will he face in that little island? Let's imagine...
Tin Tin will come to Sri Lanka for a vacation with haddock and snowy, and since the adventures always chase him he could have found something that seems mysterious in there. I've found some interesting illustrations on Instagram and Facebook, let's take a look at them first.
The Adventures of Tin Tin - Destination Sri Lanka
Seems like Tin Tin is kind of in a hurry and he's chasing someone or a vehicle with captain Haddock and Snowy by a scooter. Yes, I also agree with that idea because a scooter is the easiest way to travel in Sri Lanka, also scooters can be found anywhere anytime in a Srilankan road. We could see there's a temple in the background and also a monk.
This is really a new picture we could see, I don't think anyone had seen before Tin Tin in a Buddist country. The monk is also looking at them with a surprising mood, it may be they are foreigners or cuz of the speed they are driving or it can be both. What could be they are chasing really? Could it be a robber with some valuable stuff? or ancient antiques? or jewelry like gems? It surely can happen as Sri Lanka is popular for these treasures with thousands of years with a great history.
Old kings who ruled Sri Lanka hide their treasure, jewelry, and other valuable things when they face enemy attacks from other countries. Such as King Walagamba hide his treasure in caves and those stories are mentioned in old legends. We still hear that news about treasure thieves who got some of those treasures hidden by ancient rulers. Surprisingly still there are treasures around Sri Lanka, even in this time I'm writing this someone may looking up to steal that treasure. Sounds interesting hah! I heard the news on TV like 3 or 4 days ago, some thieves were caught when trying to digging up the treasure in Ratnapura. Old kings also buried relics in Chaitya, in historical shrines and temples. No matter how wrong, we also heard about the thieves who dug up those places to get the treasure.
Let's take a look at the next illustration.
"le mystère du lac de bére" - The mystery of Bere lake
Ceylonpick Travels & Events/ facebook.com
This picture contains a view part of Colombo, lotus tower which was opened to the public recently, and Colombo world trade center also the bere lake. Bere(Beira) Lake is a lake in the center of the city of Colombo in Sri Lanka which is surrounded by many large businesses in the city. The artist named this as "le mystère du lac de bére" - The mystery of Bere lake.
What could be the mystery of Bere lake? What if treasure thieves come to Colombo and hide all treasure under the water in bere lake before Tin Tin and captain haddock catch them. The thieves may be chased by the Tin Tin and captain since outside the city. They must have come to the city to sell the treasure and also could be cover-up from them because the young journalist and haddock might lose them in the large crowd in the city. It may be a good idea, but you guys surely know our main lead has a good instinct and that he's very persistent.
Once he enters a path he will definitely go through all obstacles till the end. The treasure thieves might hide all treasure which they stole - stored securely in waterproof bags or something underwater in Bere lake. Tin Tin may get a clue about the place they hide it, or he may have noticed one of those thieves surfing around the area. Sometimes they must be waiting to get those in the night and escape or wait until Tin Tin quit the scene. A question arose in my mind. Where did those thieves steal the treasure from? Here is the answer.
"Tin Tin essaie de trouver ravana" - Tin TIn tries to find Ravana.
Ceylonpick Travels & Events/facebook.com
"Tin Tin essay de trouver Ravana" which means Tin TIn tries to find Ravana. This illustration gives the view of Sigiriya Rock Fortress. Tin Tin, Captain Haddock, and Professor Calculus also the snowy are running away from the rock. And a swarm of bees is chasing them.
Sigiriya Rock Fortress
I have been to Sigiriya, which is located in the northern Matale District near the town of Dambulla in the Central Province, Sri Lanka, and one of the best places to visit on the island. When you climb up to the highest point you would be able to see the most beautiful greenish view around. You can see the beehives tied to the rock. They don't harm you unless you bother them.
Sigiriya the highest place around there apart from Pidurangala Rock. It's about one kilometer between the rocks. If you visit this little island don't forget to visit both places. So, It seems like someone has hit the beehives with a stone purposely in order to avoid Tin Tin. Could it be the thieves? What could they have stolen from that ancient fortress? The title tells that Tin Tin tries to find Ravana.
Who is Ravana?
I'll introduce you briefly. King Ravana is an arrogant unbelievably powerful and one of the most famous monarchs in Sri Lanka. He notoriously abducted Sita, the queen of Lord Rama of India. He was defeated in the war against Lord Rama 's forces, but his legend is still alive. He's the villain of the eminent Indian epic Ramayanaya. Some admit he was evil, while others say he was a hero. He was known to be a brilliant innovator and a brilliant physician too. His name is also intimately connected to the legendary Sigiriya Rock Fortress.
Many claims that the Alakamanda of King Ravana is emblematically depicted by Sigiriya. It is assumed that Sigiriya utilized to be one of the great king’s palaces. Let's come back to our story again. Where we were? Ah okay. Here we go.
Earlier we were talking about the thieves who hit the beehives. If they found something on the rock it could be something valuable that belongs to King Ravana. What if the king hid his treasure which represents him, somewhere on the rock or somewhere on the way to the top of the rock. There are plenty of stairs to climb the rock. So, it could be hidden anywhere.
Let's imagine this way. Those men planned this over a couple of months and came to Sigiriya in time periods when tourists count is low. That's why we couldn't see any other people in the illustration. Luckily Tin Tin, Captain Haddock, Professor Calculus, and Snowy also visit Sigiriya that day.
Our young journalist may have noticed their suspicious behavior and followed them. They suddenly got that and hit the beehives with a stone and escaped because they know the way better than those tourists. Because of the bees, Tin Tin may have missed them, but as soon as they got out from the rock, they rent a scooter and followed those thieves.
Only Tin Tin and Haddock came by scooter and Professor Calculus may get the bus to Colombo. Treasure thieves suspected that Tin Tin may follow them so they hurried to Colombo. And packed all treasure securely and put into the Bere lake. After arriving Colombo Tin Tin saw one of those thieves and he found the place they hid the treasure.
What will he do afterward? What do you think? Will he be able to find those treasure and catch those thieves? Will he be able to write a new article for the newspaper? Give your opinions.

And he further said it's great to get the United States back in the crude launch business and that they're really glad to be on board this magnificent complex.
NASA administrator Jim Breidenstein gave the microphone to the senator Cruz and he added, "well, Congratulations gentlemen, the eyes of the world are upon you and everyone is proud of you. All of America is watching you. We're glad to see it landed safely and docked. "
Finally, the NASA team took group photos with the International Space Station crew and Dragon crew, viewing on the screen behind them.
SpaceX, the rocket company own by Elon Musk, the billionaire, created to fulfill his dream of sending colonists to Mars, launched a Falcon 9 rocket, featuring a Crew Dragon capsule with two NASA astronauts on board. SpaceX is also the first private company to achieve a goal, putting men into space, that only nations have achieved until now. The space station voyage was the first from America since the retirement of the space shuttles in 2011. [embedyt] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8AMzirRpaEo[/embedyt] Two American astronauts departed at 3:22 p.m. from the same Florida launchpad that used to serve Apollo missions and space shuttles. The rocket and spacecraft designed and run not by NASA but by SpaceX.
The audience including President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence watched and cheered as the countdown ticked to zero, and the Falcon 9 rocket rumbled to air. Millions of people worldwide were watching the launch online and on TV, many of them in their homes from quarantine.
The Crew Dragon
The Falcon 9 was bearing a capsule with the Crew Dragon, directed by SpaceX staff in control centers in Florida and Hawthorne, Calif. The assignation with the International Space Station was arranged to have on Sunday morning. The two astronauts, Robert L. Behnken and Douglas G. Hurley selected by NASA along with a group of their colleagues as first customers of space capsules manufactured by private companies.
The Significant Rendezvous
The spacecraft docked at the International Space Station and completed the first phase of its 19 hours journey. At 1:22 p.m. the two astronauts, the Crew Dragon, exchanging greetings and hugs with the three astronauts already on the space station. This Crew Dragon test flight maybe a squeeze journey to certify that the shuttle meets NASA’s needs and security guidelines in arrange to begin schedule trips taking astronauts to and from the space station. Mr. Behnken and Mr. Hurley had to wait nearly three hours longer because the air pressure was evened up within their capsule and the station, no air leakage was confirmed, and the capsule was hooked into the station power grids.
Before Mr. Behnken and Mr. Hurley return to Earth in the Crew Dragon, the current mission will not be a complete success. That they named Endeavour, the same name as the former spacecraft on which both men flew and the British sailing ship under James Cook 's command as he researched the Pacific.
A drop of Elon Musk
Elon Musk is an engineer, industrial designer, and innovative entrepreneur. He is a South African, Canadian, and US citizen. And also early investor CEO and product architect of Tesla, the founder, CEO, and chief engineer/designer of SpaceX, founder of The Boring Company, co-founder of Neuralink, and co-founder and initial co-chairman of OpenAI- the Artificial Intelligence Company. In 2018, He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society (FRS).
He was ranked 21st on The World's Most Powerful People's Forbes list in December 2016 and was ranked joint-first on the Forbes list of the 2019 Most Innovative Leaders. As of May 2020, he has a net worth of $36.5 billion and is listed by Forbes as the 31st-richest person in the world. He is the longest-tenured Chief executive of almost any manufacturer of automobiles worldwide.
Mr. Musk, a 48-year-old South African who started SpaceX with mere knowledge of rockets. Mr. Musk when he was in his 20s, was chief executive of PayPal, creating his 1st fortune once eBay purchased that company. He chose an idealistic challenge as the subject of his new wealth: delivering a little greenhouse to Mars.
How SpaceX has started
Since rockets were too costly in the United States, he headed to Russia to purchase the launch of a transformed Russian ballistic missile. Unable to reach an agreement with the Russians, Mr. Musk turned to Jim Cantrell, an aviation advisor accompanying him on the tour, and to Michael D. Griffin, who would eventually become NASA's administrator, and said he felt they could create the rockets themselves. He established SpaceX in 2002. First-ever three attempts of his Falcon 1 rocket were unsuccessful. With one more failure, SpaceX could have buried with other failure rocket launches.
The fourth Falcon 1 successfully made it into orbit. SpaceX was among the two companies chosen by NASA, and contributions from the Space Agency supported Mr. Musk build the Falcon 9 rocket and the Dragon capsule, which developed into a Crew Dragon spacecraft now headed straight to the Space Station.
Tasks of Crew Dragon
As for now, Mr. Behnken and Mr. Hurley have an open-ended stay in orbit. The Crew Dragon test flight was initially planned to last just a few weeks, allowing the astronauts to test out versatility of the spacecraft including act as a shelter in case of an emergency.
However, there have been setbacks in accomplishing tasks on the spacecraft, along with another which NASA is relying on for astronaut transport, the Boeing Starliner capsule. As a consequence, the space station actually has only three astronauts on board, Mr. Cassidy and two Russians, Ivan Vagner and Anatoly Ivanishin, restricting how much scientific work can indeed be performed. Mr. Behnken and Mr. Hurley will indeed help with renovation tasks such as spacewalks in the installation of new lithium-ion batteries that have just arrived in a Japanese cargo ship.
Currently, the Crew Dragon is space approved for up to four months. The solar panels of the spacecraft slowly degrade over time, and the concern is that if it is docked quite long, the panels will not be able to produce sufficient power to re-enter Earth's atmosphere in a safe way. However, during the next few weeks, astronauts will regularly turn on the Crew Dragon and test it out. If the solar arrays turn out to be more robust than anticipated, the task could be prolonged over four months.
Future Missions for Crew Dragon
Since no significant issues occur over this space mission, NASA will use this flight data to verify that the Crew Dragon is qualified for regular missions to the space station. The next Crew Dragon mission is to send out four astronauts: three from NASA and the other from the Japanese Space Agency. It's the first operational mission to be carried out. But Mr. Behnken and Mr. Hurley were the first to get there. Mr. Hurley said that they were just the lucky guys who got to fly the rocket that historic day.
Falcon 9 has returned to terra firms after the historic launch
After launching two astronauts to orbit on Crew Dragon, About 9 minutes after liftoff Falcon 9 landed on the "Of Course I Still Love You" SpaceX drone ship which was stationed a few hundred miles off the Florida coast. And returned to Port Canaveral with the rocket secured to its deck on Tuesday, June 2nd.
Even though we can not conclude that the exact booster will be flying once more, however, SpaceX had not revealed its destruction yet. And the company may likely choose to retain it as a legendary artifact. The first Falcon 9 first phase that ever landed successfully now stands outside SpaceX's headquarters in Hawthorne, California uses as an example.
