After recycling and launching its first Falcon 9 rocket, SpaceX wants more. Elon Musk wants more reuse rockets for the next flights.
After testing a reuse and recycled Falcon 9 rocket, SpaceX under CEO Elon Musk wants to try and use more recycled rockets for future missions, Phys reported. The first recycled Falcon 9 rocket blasted off last Thursday that resulted in an announcement from Musk's twitter account the second stage of Falcon 9.
This would mean that the recycled SpaceX Falcon 9 Heavy rocket with three Falcon 9 engine cores will have another model. "Considering trying to bring upper stage back on Falcon Heavy demo flight for full reusability," Elon Musk twitted.
According to Political Lore, the successful landing of the first recycled SpaceX Falcon 9 inspired Elon Musk to go further in reusing more Falcon 9 rockets. More so, Musk has plenty of ideas in mind that he wants to be actualized by SpaceX engineers. If all of his recycling ideas will take over, the very expensive space navigation will now be cheaper and effective.
On the other hand, not everyone agrees with Elon Musk's ideas, for other engineers believe that those are all totally crazy. But for Elon Musk, SpaceX had been in so many successful missions and for 15 years have been honing the technology for space navigation.
Over the years, SpaceX is empowering its rockets to attain careful Earth landings on water or preferably in solid ground. Now, CEO Elon Musk is working on another goal of making rocket parts in the same reusability as planes, bicycles, and cars. This is because, when SpaceX reused a rocket, the company can save the cost of more than $60 million.
The first cost would eventually mean that in the second state of recycling more SpaceX Falcon 9 rockets, the costs will even drop further. Despite the discouragements from some engineers, CEO Elon Musk does not want to look back away from his goal.
