     SpaceX plan in earnest for Interplanetary Transport System

    Space Launch
    Elon Musk, the CEO and founder of SpaceX, the successful USA-based space launch company, announced recently, at the International Astronautical Congress, in Adelaide, Australia, that SpaceX now plans to transition to a reusable, two-stage, multipurpose super-heavy-lift launcher that not only can take on the satellite delivery and station resupply flights that keep SpaceX financially viable, but also fly crews and cargo to the Moon and Mars. The system also could be used for suborbital, point-to-point travel between destinations on Earth.

     New Spacex re-usable booster

    Space LaunchSpacex are considering adding modifications to their Falcon-9 launcher to allow it to become fully re-usable. If the booster can be re-used for 1000 flights, say, then the cost of a single launch could be brought down from $50M to around $50,000, says Elon Musk, the founder of SpaceX, which has already brought a massive reduction in launch cost with their existing Falcon-9 system.
