SpaceX gets ready to crash barge-land ANOTHER rocket

Good point. Also, assuming SpaceX successfully implements first stage reuseability, how many customers will want to risk their precious payloads to refurbished launch vehicles? I understand the mechanical stresses of launch (and now landing) are immense and may seriously degrade the launch vehicle's airframe.

I hope SpaceX succeeds, but won't be surprised if reuse is more expensive than anticipated.
