Mask: next year the SpaceX rocket module can be used again 100%

According to foreign media reports, SpaceX's Falcon 9 rocket has completed several Recyclable experiments, but SpaceX CEO Elon Musk for Falcon 9 rocket is expected to be much more than this. Mask said the goal was to make use of every part of the rocket later in 2018.

It is understood that the launch price of Falcon 9 is $61 million 200 thousand. Analysts estimate that if only the first component can be reused, the cost will drop by about 20%, while the profit margin of SpaceX will increase by about 50% each time. If SpaceX's Falcon 9 rocket is reused, all major components will have a profound impact on SpaceX's financial books, and will also boost the space economy more broadly

That is to say, these gains will be magnified as part of the reuse of all components, and eventually 200 thousand to 300 thousand dollars of fuel will be the main material cost per launch.

In addition, Mask has said he hopes to use the rocket in 24 hours to complete the turnaround, and eventually built the star railroad he described, will be sent to Mars, or even farther space.

In February of this year, SpaceX successfully recovered the Falcon 9 rocket for the third time. Successful recycling is important for SpaceX, which allows them to get out of the cloud of previous satellite explosions and allow more partners to see their satellite launch capabilities.
