Do you by chance know the cost of a BO launch ready rocket?

I know Space X is in the 60-65 million range.

Blue Origin has never launched anything into orbit, so there isn't really anything to compare SpaceX's costs to. I'm sure that BO's recent flight was considerably cheaper than that though given the significantly lower fuel requirements (ignoring all the R&D time anyway).

Looks like SpaceX is aiming for December 15th to finally fly again. They will again be aiming to land the first stage, and this time it will be at their new facility on land (no barges).

That's always been what they were aiming for. I'd imagine it's just a matter of the facility now being ready along with the confidence that they will hit the target at least even if it still falls over. I'm sure it's easier to land on land than on a barge also.

On the surface, sure, but it's pretty well-known that Musk is an insane workaholic and pretty much expects everyone else to be as well. I'm sure it's a very REWARDING place to work, but the hours are a bit much for most people.

Hard to disagree, but in my humble opinion/observation few huge leaps have come from people who don't burn the midnight oil.

But I'm not lost on the fact that some people take it too far and drive away the very support they might want and need.

Yeah, I work a pissload of hours, and I don't think I'm down for working there. Those mother****ers be crazy. And all for a wage.

It was my understanding that they were landing at Cape Canaveral, and the reason was to avoid the "moving target" that was the barge. I'd imagine they'd have less turbulent winds also.

This isn't to say they've given up on barge landings, but with the B.O. landing, and the willy nilly nature of public perception, no matter how wrong, the pressure is on.

They'll probably perfect landings on land, then move to the slightly more difficult barges.
