Re: Don't call it "re-used"

Hmmm... "pre-owned" does not cut it either, as the previous launch customer only borrowed a ride.

"Ubered" would only make sense if SpaceX screwed both launch crew & the customer, skimmed the cash flow & did fake ghost launches whenever they thought NASA was looking.

"Second hand" sounds too low class, like someone's cast off.

"Pre-tested" might work, as it sounds like a feature.

"Pre-exersized" sounds kind of classy, so maybe they should call it that.
