This pretty awesome display of pyrotechnics is the latest in the successful testing of Space X's reusable Falcon 9 rocket.
Having already done a short ten second burst earlier this month, this was a full-duration, three-minute test firing.
Space X, founded by entrepreneur Elon Musk, aims to use the rocket for transporting astronauts in conjunction with Nasa.
It is a two-stage rocket and uses both liquid oxygen and rocket-grade kerosene and generates 1.5 million pounds of thrust at altitude.
They are already the first private company to build, launch and recover a spacecraft and have also docked with the International Space Station (ISS) to deliver supplies.
The company is also developing the Falcon Heavy launch system which will be the most powerful rocket in the world and has the potential to take humans to Mars.
Musk also has a few other projects in the pipeline including his rather mysterious Hyperloop Transit System.
