Pretty unlikely until they start screwing with the design again.

For instance, they're planning to go back to the tanking protocol that caused the explosion after changing how they make the helium tanks.

There'll also be a bunch of small changes we probably won't hear about in public until they cause a problem.

>Specifically, Blasdell complained that SpaceX’s failure to properly mark and serialize parts made it impossible for him to research each part’s possible history of failure, which could potentially lead to the wrong part or a faulty part being put on a rocket. He also complained that his managers were implementing practices that led to a culture in the test lab of ignoring procedures and deviating from protocols in order to pass tests through and not hold up production. He reported that he and other employees were pressured to falsify testing procedures to make it look like they were following specific testing requirements when in fact they had not.

No, it's getting close to maturity, and they're working on the next vehicle. The next revision is nicknamed Falcon 9 Final.

They've got an ambitious schedule for ITS. It's just about time to shift focus to it.

The hosted stream has a history of cutting to two people talking when something interesting happens so instead of actually seeing it happen we see two people talking about while people watch it in the background. There is also the fact that their "explanations" are almost always the same basic explanation of "this is a rocket". If you've watched the stream multiple times in the past the same canned speech gets old.

Why do I love ULA so much? It's pretty simple when I think about it. ULA isn't just the best launch provider in the country; they might just be the greatest launch provider of all time. Just imaging the Altas V riding through the skies of Earth, the wind on its fairing, the mighty RD-180 below it. As she rides through the red sky, NASA swoons at her very scent. They know how she smells; the essence of burning RP-1 smell is sold in Orlando under the name of "Space Orgasm." The very nature of ULA is mystery. Could they be playing a deeper game than even Tory Bruno realizes? The answer is yes, ULA has transcended such boundaries as the physical world, and has free will to do whatever they sees fit. However, ULA is filled with such guile, such arcane craft that they does not even use these powers. Why, you might ask? You will never know, for the mind of the ULA is not one that is easily penetrated. ULA rockets are such a force of nature in this realm that nothing can truly touch them, the only thing keeping them bound to this world at all is their will to exist within the preordained boundaries understood physics. ULA is not only beyond the comprehension of us, it exists within a plane of true focus and beauty. Observe the plume of exhaust gasses from this Delta IV, the gorgeous and rippling flames, the gallant fairing, and most importantly, its engines. Her engines, like cauldrons straight from hell, provide the only glimpse into the true machinations of ULA. Do not stare into them. Many good men have gone mad in the attempt. ULA is not just a launch provider, a formless collection of engineers and rockets; they are themselves the binding that holds the word together. Without ULA, Musk the Menace takes over and the entire space industry as we know it crumbles. The Mississippi would stop flowing without ULA, Kessler syndrome would take over in orbit, and the space station would fall without their fiery gaze. These are just of a few of the reasons why I like ULA so much.

The rocket consists out of two parts.

They recovered their first booster over a year ago. Now they've got a stack of them. Haven't even tried a suborbital test flight with one.

>They only get one chance at this reuse thing - it simply HAS to work first time or it will be game over
That's bullshit. It would make total sense to just send them up with a boilerplate or low-value payload and call it a development flight with a high probability of failure.

It looks much worse when they blow up a new one than it would if they blew up a used one on a development flight.

The entire mission thrust profile is determined by the shaping and volume of the solid propellant, so I'd reckon so.

None of that is a plan to compete.

>for reuse, detachable first stage engine pod (80% of the expense of the rocket) which is recovered
80% of the expense of the lower stage, on a vehicle with an expensive upper stage, and the recovered engines will still need to be refurbished and integrated into a new first stage. The ultimate potential of this is at most a 30% reduction in the cost of a flight, with a reduction in performance. It's an awful, dead-end plan which will probably never reduce costs at all.

The Falcon 9 flyback reuse, on the other hand, is the total recovery of a complete first stage, with a cheap upper stage. The ultimate potential is to land it in ready-to-fly condition, needing only to be refuelled with a new upper stage on top. This is potentially a 90% cost reduction. Then they could add a reusable upper stage and reduce costs 99+%. It's a step on an incremental path to radical increase in launch volume and routinization of space travel.

you're right, but at the same time SpaceX says that the first cost reductions with reused stages will only be 10%. So it might take a bit more to drive the cost down (but the actual reusing will be ez)

A few of the ones that I actually watched have exploded. Its a pretty rate event here. My father used to work directly on communications for the launches, and he admires SpaceX.

Price.

They don't need to lower prices any further, since people are lined up around the block to launch at their current price. As they reduce costs and increase launch rate, they're taking the profit.
