Reusable Rockets

Reusable rockets have the potential to drastically reduce the cost of launching stuff into space.

In November of 2015, Blue Origin launched a vehicle into suborbital space and then returned the rocket to earth and landed it upright. Meanwhile, Space X actually delivered a payload into orbit with its reusable rocket before its historic landing.

These developments have the potential to drastically reduce the cost of launching stuff into space, which would be a game-changer for the future of space exploration.

Does this mark a new era in our access to space? What upcoming space project has you excited and why?
