What is your current thinking on the savings for customers using a reused Falcon 9 first stage? Is a 30 percent discount realistic?
We are not decreasing the price by 30 percent right now for recovered and reused vehicles. We’re offering about a 10 percent price reduction. I’d rather fly on an airplane that’s flown before as I’d feel more comfortable with its reliability.
At this point that is a reasonable reduction and then, as we recover some of the costs associated with the investment that we put into the Falcon 9 to achieve that, then we might get a little bit more. But in general, it’s about 10 percent right now.
А что вы думаете о такой прорывной инновации, которая изменит всю космическую индустрию?
Linux при том, что Falcon 9 это линукс дивайс, навроде андроидофона.
