After the successful reuse of a Falcon 9 rocket by SpaceX, Elon Musk share his company’s next goal, the company wants to make it able to reuse within 24 hours. SpaceX is still celebrating its latest achievement. The company is the first one to reuse its rocket for mission as this achievement proved as a revolution in the rocket industry.
The success of this historic mission will significantly lower the cost of space travel, according to some estimates this achievement can save up to 30% of the expenditure and can save millions of company’s investment.
But Musk is all set to work on his new goal, he said the company wants to reuse the rocket within 24 hours. SpaceX President Gwynne Shotwell said prior to the launch: “We’re really looking for true operational reusability, like an aircraft, an aircraft lands, goes to the gate, passengers come off, passengers go on, you refuel, and then you fly again. What we’re looking to do is exactly that. We land and relaunch on the same day.
The company is also planning to put a human on the Red Planet possibly as soon as 2025. With the help of reusable and economical rockets it would be easy for SpaceX to get to Mars, and to colonize it. Musk wants to launch an Interplanetary Transit System (ITS) to keep a steady supply line operational between the planets.
Incredibly proud of the SpaceX team for achieving this milestone in space! Next goal is reflight within 24 hours.— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) March 30, 2017
As SpaceX is a private, not government-operated company, it can achieve greater levels of collaboration with other countries to make the mission to colonize Mars a truly international effort.
