After 25 years, military told to move from “expendable” to “reusable” rockets
Alabama Senator Dick Shelby is not happy.
There are still battles ahead for SpaceX getting the military contracts it deserves but things are looking up.
“Senator, reusable rockets will kill jobs and impact the economy of Alabama. Reusing stuff is Euro and Asian lifestyle and is not the American way”
“Earlier this year, it flew the Falcon Heavy rocket. The significance of this larger rocket, powered in part by reused Falcon 9 cores, is that it can hit all nine of the Department of Defense's reference orbits for missions. This effectively means that there are now no military missions that a "reusable rocket" cannot reach.”
I did not know that, important detail. Helps make a solid business case for FH.
FH's second flight will have some military satellites.
