SpaceX gains substantial cost savings from reused Falcon 9, TaskUs moves headquarters to Santa Monica Airport, and Enthusiast Network launches Motor Trend streaming video in UK and Europe.
SpaceX President Glenn Shotwell said at a conference that the company saw significant cost savings by reusing a Falcon 9 first stage in a launch last week, reports SpaceNews. The company expects to see even greater cost savings on future launches of reused Falcon 9 vehicles by reducing the amount of refurbishment work it does on the recovered stages.
Outsourcing company TaskUs relocated its headquarters to a 6,200-square-foot space previously home to the restaurant Typhoon, according to a press release. TaskUs headquarters currently houses 55 employees, a number it expects to grow to at least 70 employees by the end of the year.
Media company Enthusiast Network is expanding the distribution of Motor Trend OnDemand, its automotive content streaming service in the UK and European markets. The service offers thousands of hours of automotive content, including motorsports and original programming.
