Elon Musk's SpaceX has been working hard to advance commercial spaceflight, pushing NASA to allow flights to ISS on an accelerated schedule and making bold claims about flights to the Moon and beyond.
Check out this (pretty awesome, I think) concept video of SpaceX's plans for the future: a fully reusable spacecraft.
Yes, this is really cool. All 3 stages of the vehicle equipped with automatic landing navigation systems and the additional fuel for powered landings. It will be interesting to see how this idea plays out both technically and economically.
James i agree wholeheartedly its good to see someone else besides russia is trying to advance space explorations
I am thankful that someone is taking space exploration seriously...not that NASA isn't, though buget cuts, there is nothing NASA can do...Space holds the secrets for survival, since we are already distroying our planet.
Yeah, that's pretty awesome. SpaceX must be on the NASA's watch, I think.
