Elon Musk’s used Falcon 9 is “Ready to Go”. So what does that mean?

$60 million to go to space, or $200,000? That question was on everyone’s mind as Elon Musk‘s SpaceX and its Falcon 9 rocket landed safely back on Earth after launch late December last year. Rockets of years passed were simply single use, and the difference between building a new rocket every time, 60 million, or simply refueling a reusable rocket, $200,000,  is what makes this such a big deal for those with dreams of taking a commercial space flight…or even a trip to Mars. Following a monumental year in space, including Jeff Bezos’s Blue Origin landing its own rocket (though not as impressive) and NASA announcing its Journey To Mars, we all wait to see what comes next. Will Musk reveal his MCT and his grand vision of going to Mars? We’ll see.
