Space offers boundless technology and business opportunities. To open the market for commercial space, frequency must increase, costs should drop and capabilities should dramatically improve. Key to commerciality of space is reusability. Engines and vehicles must have high usage rates, low serviceability requirements, quick turn times and long life.
