Falcon 1.9


Intriguing news about a Falcon 1.9 being planned for after the main development of the BFR is done. The Falcon 1.9 would be somewhere between the Falcon 1 & never realized Falcon 5 & provide an alternative to micro launcher startups. They want some amount of it to be reusable, maybe all of it if it uses raptors.


It means they're finding these micro launcher startups really are going to impact their business by filling a niche that the BFR can't: small 1 off satellites going to unique orbits, which can't share a launch with hundreds of other satellites or wait for all the other satellites to be ready. It also means major parts of BFR development could wrap up sooner than we think.
