Dec. 5th, 20th successful first stage recovery. Cargo Dragon mission to ISS marks the third time this Dragon capsule has flown.

MISSION

A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket is set to deliver the next commercial cargo resupply mission to the International Space Station. The cargo will be delivered on a Dragon spacecraft and includes science investigations, supplies and equipment.


I'm sure the people on-board ISS are thankful for SpaceX and these cargo deliveries.

Space Junk.
nope, spacex doesn't leave space junk. the second stage is burnt up on re-entry, the first stage lands on the drone ship, the capsule returns in a month or so.

so spacex' satellites are junk, but every other satellite in space isn't? i don't quite follow you. our lives would be dramatically different without any satellites. spacex is currently working on how to make the reflective surfaces face away from earth when they are in night sky, they're trying to fix the astronomy problem.

also, Elon is just faster. Bezos and Zuck plan on doing the same thing.
