“Do what from orbit? It’s a first stage it will never make it to orbit.”

Well, now, let’s see. They wanted to land a vehicle upright so that I suppose that it would be from orbit, no? When are vehicles expected to land upright if not from orbit?

If you are saying that first stages would be landed upright then I still say that too much fuel is required.

Why do you assume that ‘they’ may know more about rocket science than I? You do know what ‘assume’ does, don’t you? ;-)

How do you arrive at that conclusion? Can you show me numbers?

So how many space station resupply vehicles have you designed and launched?
