RT published this video item, entitled “SpaceX successfully launches humans using RECYCLED rocket” – below is their description.
For the first time, SpaceX has launched astronauts to the International Space Station using a recycled rocket and capsule from a previous mission. An international crew of four was onboard the groundbreaking flight, representing NASA, and the Japanese and European space agencies.
This launch is a significant milestone for Elon Musk’s #SpaceX, which aspires to make space travel affordable, and more sustainable by reusing components for multiple flights. This latest success comes one week after the company was awarded a $2.9 billion dollar contract to build a new lunar lander system, which hopes to put humans back on the moon by 2024.
