SpaceX makes history as its Falcon 9 rocket successfully launched and landed at Cape Canaveral, Florida. It's the first successful vertical landing by a private U.S. spaceflight company since its rocket exploded on liftoff in June. SpaceX Founder Elon Musk tweeted 'Welcome Back, Baby' after the touchdown. Google (GOOG) is said to be in talks with automaker Ford (F) to help the company build self-driving cars. Automotive news says the contract manufacturing deal, if finalized, is expected to come during the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas in January.
