Re: Space Shuttle
The Falcon 9 is actually more re-useable than the Shuttle ever was.
At this point, I'd have to split hairs about that since the Falcon 9 isn't recovering its upper stage yet. The Shuttle, for all its hangar queen antics, did recover most of its first stage (the boosters) and the most expensive bits of its second stage (the orbiter).
The Falcon 9 is, however, on its way to better reusability if Musk doesn't waver from second stage recovery plans.
