SpaceX is developing a fleet of reusable orbital Dragon spacecraft planned for the next 5-10 years to allow several NASA and commercial astronaut and cargo launches.

President and COO Gwynne Shotwell announced in a press conference that the business is still in the process of constructing some more crew and updated Cargo Dragon spacecraft on top of the other vessels.

Ultimately, the remarks confirm the unsurprising fact of the current Dragon 2 spacecraft: SpaceX aims to do better than ever before in even less vehicles due to reusability, potentially saving a great deal of time and money over the next 5-10 years.

Shotwell specifically said that that SpaceX expects to develop three reusable Cargo Dragon 2 capsules, one of which is already done and is planning for its CRS-21 launch debut in Florida on December 2. On the crew side of things, on top of the flight-proven Demo-2 and present orbital Crew-1 capsules, SpaceX will develop three more" Crew Dragon capsules. It is uncertain if this would mean that the latest Crew Dragon capsule flown for additional flights on SpaceX's January 2020 In-Flight Abort (IFA) test would be refurbished.

A Leaning Rocket Booster? Elon Musk Confirms Its Still Reusable

On Twitter, the SpaceX CEO is once again searched after a video showing the droneship "Just Read the Instructions" waiting in the open sea. The video reveals that the Falcon 9 booster from SpaceX, which propelled the Crew Dragon, bends to one side and is in a "tattered" condition.

Twitter user "Viv" (@flcnhvy) noted the video and tagged Elon Musk to the post. The person asked him if the new SpaceX rocket booster "Leaning tower of Pisa" is still available in its current state.

Elon Musk (@elonmusk), CEO of SpaceX, saw the tweet and responded to the consumer, stating the rocket booster is reusable and still working. Musk added that the spacecraft was otherwise fine" and only a handful of its elements would have to be serviced until another use.

Revolutionizing The Space Business Through Reusable Technology

SpaceX is one of the latest innovators in the recycled technology of spacecraft that has a functioning prototype and a portfolio of real uses to and from the earth. This technology separates SpaceX from its peers and gives the business the edge of becoming NASA's licensed affiliate.

Performance and the potential to reuse and recycle the returned spacecraft and space ships built on SpaceX feature its technologies. The reusability of SpaceX greatly saves costs, particularly when producing new spacecraft, which costs millions.

NASA recently completed its Crew-1 Dragon mission, which uses SpaceX's Crew Dragon as its International Space Station (ISS) vessel of choice. The rocket ship will remain docked on the ISS floor before astronauts return and land on the earth again.

Will SpaceX Shift To a Fully Reusable Fleet For National Security Launches?

The U.S. Space Force plans to clear SpaceX utilizing already flown boosters on all national security flights.

"Over the next 18 months, we'll complete the transition to a fully reusable SpaceX fleet for our national security missions," Col. Robert Bongiovi, director of the Space and Missile Systems Center's Launch Enterprise, said per SpaceNews.

Bongiovi said the renegotiated agreements saved $65 million for the government over the four GPS launches in 2020 and 2021.

SpaceX's transformation to a reusable fleet is necessary because SpaceX has so long been forced to fly brand new boosters for national security missions, the SpaceNews report added. In its commercial and NASA missions, the corporation regularly recovers and reuses rocket parts, but the Space Force required time to work out a method to certify boosters previously flown.
