Here’s a quote from Reuters about the latest SpaceX launch:
NASA and Elon Musk’s commercial rocket company SpaceX launched a new four-astronaut team on a flight to the International Space Station on Friday, the first crew ever propelled into orbit by a rocket booster recycled from a previous spaceflight.
Damn. Apparently, the space shuttle was SO LONG AGO that modern humans can’t remember that the solid fuel boosters were recycled…
Damn. Kids today.
