SpaceX has released some new information on what it will cost you to send a satellite into orbit aboard their Falcon 9 or Falcon 9 Heavy rockets. The damage? Anywhere from $US62 million ($80.8 million) to $US90 million ($117.3 million). SpaceX has long been touting its ability to drive down the cost of spaceflight for either commercial or governmental customers. And after the company’s recent barge landing, it looks like SpaceX has figured just how much cheaper it will be.
Also included are figures for how much can be hauled into orbit at any given time, whether Low Earth Orbit or Geosynchronous Transfer Orbit.
The company also noted that “Modest discounts are available, for contractually committed, multi-launch purchases”. Buy ten, get one free?
