SpaceX’s latest upgrade aims to make rockets even more reusable

SpaceX’s improved rocket, named Falcon 9 Block 5, is on track to be a first-of-its-kind rocket, capable of being sent back and forth into space for 10 or more flights with limited maintenance. “The big breakthrough of Block 5 is it represents a new generation of design that they plan to re-fly 10 times,” said Luigi Peluso, an aerospace and defense consultant at AlixPartners.
