Great, more core stages at the bottom of the ocean at taxpayer expense. Memo to NASA: Hire SpaceX to design your cores so they can return to the launchpad or drone ship at sea.

It's too bad that NASA can't pull off a SpaceX solution, and land these back on a platform.

Just do what you would do for the SRB’s: get the core in the ocean! Not hard.

These are amazing engines - but we need reuse! I agree with keeping people employed, but this gravy train politics has got to go.

It's a shame to see a rocket that is this reliable and efficient being disposed of during each launch. What a waste.

Yeah but so far ONLY SpaceX is reusing them. Everyone else is using throwaway rockets for now world wide!!! I cannot wait for SKYLON. THAT is true space travel, and reusable!
ну-ка прямиком ультромегосуппер!!!

Next step for humanity is to be erased by artifical intelligence.

+Mia Patterson Yea space belongs to us, soon we will rule the universe!

Space is the next step for humanity. we need to be there

+NeonGlowment Just because you dissagree does not make him/her a troll. In any case I happen to agree, but NASA has 1000 of employees. Naturally it cost more to employ them all.
Meemsss (2 years ago)
+Formulastreet also why the fuck would we close down NASA just because of an inventor who did so much with a much smaller budget, also he isn't he dead?!

This good news.. but a shame that NASA is so strapped that it can't develop new engines with present day parts and technology.
