That s too wasteful for Elon Musk and his SpaceX company. During the next SpaceX takeoff, planned for either Jan. 6 or 7, SpaceX will try to keep the base rocket section in good shape by landing it - standing straight up - on a barge floating in the ocean. How challenging is that? Consider three things. One, that rocket section, called Falcon 9, is 14 stories tall and will be climbing at nearly 1 mile per second. Trying to stabilize that rocket to…

NanoRacks successfully manifested payloads onto SpaceX-5 in record time: nine days. Historically, it takes months, years even, to successfully manifest a payload for delivery to the International Space Station. But that speed is too slow for the agile commercial space industry. NanoRacks was able to manifest CubeSats under a nine day deadline, and MixStix experiments in under one-month. That’s how little time there was to manifest payloads onto SpaceX-5…
