They still are disposable and often burn up in the upper atmosphere, and not at the start, as the “Proton-M” . Reusable launch vehicles make space travel is very expensive and disadvantageous from the point of view of natural resources. SpaceX’s engineers are currently puzzled building missiles that can be reused .

Most have heard about the missile, called Grasshopper , which in recent times has made ​​several successful takeoffs and landings. The first time she was able to climb to a height of 2 m, and after some time at the height of 250 meters It is now known that during the flight, which took place on June 14, 2013, “Grasshopper” jumped to a height of 325 meters

Rocket Grasshopper is the first stage rocket Falcon 9 rocket engine mounted Merlin-1D, four steel landing legs and high precision control system. It should be noted that the Grasshopper can sit down to Earth with an accuracy of a helicopter, which once again confirms the video below.

The main challenge in this difficult trial was not the conquest of a new height, and testing of new navigation sensors and systems control the position of the rocket. As mentioned above, the flight took place on June 14, but the video was posted just a few days ago.
