Shotwell: Reusable Falcon 9 Would Cost $5 to $7 Million Per Launch

Singapore Satellite Industry Forum 2013 — Opening Keynote

SpaceX President and COO Gwynne Shotwell talks at the event last summer and discussed the price points for a reusable Falcon 9. The comments begin at the 13:17 mark.

“If we get this right, and we’re trying very hard to get this right, we’re looking at launches to be in the 5 to 7 million dollar range, which would really change things dramatically,” Shotwell said.

The main costs would be the initial investment in the stages, the cost of fuel, and mission operations expenses.
