I know this is somewhat old news, but I’ve been traveling and regardless, the oldness of it makes it no less awesome: SpaceX – a private space flight company (read: not NASA, not any government entity) – is reducing space flight costs by 70%.
70% is millions of dollars per launch.
Reusable rockets. Suing the Air Force in an attempt to end a ridiculous procurement program that wastes a lot of money.
Private enterprise is the real hero.
