        Space Force to start flying on reused SpaceX rockets



        Washington DC (UPI) Sep 25, 2020
        The U.S. Space Force will start to fly missions on reused SpaceX rockets next year to save millions of dollars, the service announced Friday. The Space Force will fly two GPS satellites into orbit on a Falcon 9 first-stage booster. The lower cost that SpaceX charges for reused rockets will save taxpayers $52.7 million, a statement from the military branch said. SpaceX has reused boosters since March 2017, but the Space Force wanted to see the technology proven before flying costly satell ... read more
