SpaceX to slow upper rocket stages with "giant party balloon"

Elon Musk does not deny that his idea can be called insane.

"This is gonna sound insane, but ..."

And it appears Musk is thinking about using a "giant party balloon" to take the upper stage of his rocket (which is created to operate at high altitude and carry the payload) out of orbital velocity and slow down its landing back on Earth - onto a bouncy castle.

The company aims to recover every stage of its rockets instead of just the first stage boosters, as is now the case.

2 April space, the company performed a successful launch of the Falcon 9 rocket with the spacecraft Dragon, who managed to deliver to the ISS the 2.6 MT of cargo.

In the past year, SpaceX launched the world's most powerful rocket, launched history's first rapidly reusable orbital rocket, and doubled in value since 2015. They use grid-like fins for stability during re-entry, perform engine burns to slow down and carry landing legs that fold out just before touchdown.

In addition, SpaceX is now trying to recover its payload fairing that is the big nose cone on the Falcon 9. The survey, also known as Tess, is NASA's next step in the search for exoplanets, including those that could support life.

Musk did not reveal a timetable for the "giant party balloon" landing test or details on how it works, but he did say that a sturdy balloon has a good shape to withstand the stresses a rocket stage endures during its supersonic descent back to Earth.
