    SpaceX reuses a Rocket to launch Satellite SES-10

    SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket successfully delivered SES-10, a commercial communications satellite , to a Geostationary Transfer Orbit (GTO). SES is a world-leading satellite operator.

    This SES-10 mission marks a historic milestone on the road to full and rapid reusability as the world’s first reflight of an orbital class rocket.
    spaceX launched this commucation Satellite from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida using a rocket stage that had already been to space and back.
    Falcon 9’s first stage for the SES-10 mission previously supported the successful CRS-8 mission in April 2016.

    SpaceX is believing that this kind of recycling will lower its costs and revolutionize space flight.

    SpaceX Founder Elon Musk tweeted as the "Next goal is reflight within 24 hours."

      this thread was opened last April but NASA did make this spaceX project happen very recently. Its a very heavily funded project and people are questioning its effectiveness. I believe they are still bringing results so totally worth it.
      Attitude is more important than facts.
