Spacex targets 100% reusable rocket by end of 2018

Elon Musk believes that by the end of 2018 Spacex will be able to get to 100% reusable rockets.

Falcon 9 launches currently sell for $62 million apiece. Musk has said that the first stage accounts for up to 70 percent of each liftoff, and it costs just $200,000 to $300,000 to refuel a first stage for an additional flight.

The first falcon heavy launch is scheduled for this summer. The Falcon heavy would have up to three times the payload capacity of a Falcon 9.
