• World’s first fully-reusable space launch system planned

    Rockets and space-bound vehicles today as we know them tend to blow up gallons of fuel on take-off and land or rather fall smoothly back down to earth with the help of parachutes. SpaceX, a private rocket-building company however, has different plans for the future. the company plans to have its Dragon spaceship land with rocket power too, instead of traditional parachutes, for a more precise landing, and is also busy cooking up further plans to use a two-stage launch system that’s completely reusable! This could be the first to ever have been used in the history of mankind and is sure to significantly reduce the carbon footprint stamped out by space expeditions.

    And we sure hope this turns out to be more than just a concept and a bunch of blue-prints. The world could do with a bit of eco-efficiency from space-bound companies.
