On reusability, Shotwell discussed a series of static-fire tests of the first stage recovered from the May launch of the JCSAT-14 satellite. “It was the hottest incoming that we had with one of these stages,” she said, referring to the high-velocity return and landing of the stage. “It was kind of a wreck.”After doing “the minimum work” to make it operational, the company has been firing the stage on a test stand at the company’s McGregor, Texas, test site. “We’ve fired that stage eight full mission durations, half of which have been at about 10 percent additional thrust,” she said.Two more full-duration static-fire tests are planned for the stage to gain confidence for limited reuse of the first stage. “We’ll feel pretty good about reflying each stage once or twice” once those tests are complete, she said. An updated version of the Falcon 9, to be rolled out next year, should be able to reuse its first stage up to 10 times.
The plan is to get back to launch in early December and that will be from pad 39A at the Cape and we will be launching around the same time from Vandenberg as well. Pad 40 will probably be back in action around March or April next year. Probably around May or so is when we will launch Falcon Heavy. We are going to re-fly the first returned core December or January. We have test fired one of the returned cores 8 times and it looks good. That is promising for testing re-flight.

Discussing comm’l crew work, but not giving schedules. #ISPCS2016https://twitter.com/jeff_foust/status/786685656462426113 Reed: SpaceX has delivered 15,800 kg of cargo to ISS, returned 12,100 kg to date. 11 more missions remaining on CRS -1 contract. #ISPCS2016https://twitter.com/jeff_foust/status/786686592077426688 Reed: we’ll use Dragon 2 for our CRS -2 missions, with propulsive landing (vs. splashdown). #ISPCS2016https://twitter.com/jeff_foust/status/786686995615641600 Reed: we’ll re-fly our first Dragon capsule on the SpX-11 mission, so relatively soon. #ISPCS2016https://twitter.com/jeff_foust/status/786687199261655040 Reed: reusing Dragon capsules will allow us to close down the Dragon 1 production line and focus on Dragon 2. #ISPCS2016https://twitter.com/jeff_foust/status/786688235107909633 Reed, showing ORBCOMM landing video: “I always get goosebumps when I watch this.” #ISPCS2016https://twitter.com/jeff_foust/status/786694587297456130 Reed: biggest issue for reusing Dragon was dealing with water intrusion. Worked hard to update capsule to avoid it. #ISPCS2016
SpaceX to OECD today: 1st launch w/ reused 1st stage to be early 2017 on commercial mission. Return to flight still TBD, aiming for this yr.
Scaled SpaceX ITS booster/craft to launch from Kwajalein Atoll in next few yearsTexas not an appropriate launch site at this time
SpaceX had planned to install Crew Access Arm at KSC's pad 39A this month; deferred to Spring to accommodate upcoming Falcon launches.
Aww: SpaceX has four crew Dragon spacecraft in parallel production. It calls this area the "hatchery."
“SpaceX is a privately held company in which the sole shareholder who is the beneficial owner of a 10% or greater interest is Elon Musk, as trustee of a private trust. Mr. Musk’s trust currently owns 54% of the outstanding stock of SpaceX and has voting control of 78% of the outstanding stock of SpaceX. Mr. Musk, a U.S. citizen, can be contacted at the following address: 1 Rocket Road, Hawthorne, CA 90250.”
Der Start ist geplant für April 2017 von Vandenberg, die NASA zahlt für das "komplette Paket" 112 Mio $.
RTF is Iridium. Danach Echostar 23 von 39A mit NET 30.12.https://www.nasaspaceflight.com/2016/11/spacex-rockets-december-return/
In addition to EchoStar XXI, there are currently two other SSL-built satellites for EchoStar in preparation for launch between Q4 2016 and Q1 2017.
Deutsche Wissenschaftler planen Ende 2017 2 Mondfahrzeuge (Audi Quattro Lunar Rover) in der Nähe der Landestelle von Apollo 17 auf dem Mond zu landen. Für den Transport dorthin ist eine Falcon 9 im Gespräch (d.h. vorgesehen aber noch nicht bestätigt). Dieser Flug wird im Rahmen des Google Lunar X Prize Wettbewerbs durchgeführt. http://spacenews.com/german-x-prize-team-announces-launch-contract/
