    It's now recycled space hardware rather than just another chunk of space junk.

    I thought boosters burned up falling back into and through the atmosphere. Regardless, point taken.

    Heh, maybe a shroud of space junk will someday prevent global warming. And crops!

    Now there are two corporations able to bring them back alive. Blue Origins is still ahead in the landing count though.
