SpaceX Reveals (low) Cost Of Sending Satellites to Space

After the successful launch and return of its Falcon 9 rocket at the end of last year, Elon Musk’s SpaceX program recently made a few updates to its website. One of the updates disclosed the actual cost of sending a satellite into orbit aboard their flagship spacecrafts: a staggering $62-$92 million USD. The recent page also lists the capabilities of the Falcon 9 and its ability to carry more weight than originally projected, from 29,000 to 63,000 pounds to low Earth Orbit. SpaceX also provided some specs for the Falcon Heavy, a larger version of the Falcon 9 rocket still in development, tested at being capable of carrying more than twice as much weight.
