SpaceX will debut the Block 5 version of the company’s Falcon 9 May 10, the most advanced upgrade of the rocket to date and the last major version of the vehicle that SpaceX plans to make, the Verge reports. Block 5 is designed to improve the Falcon 9’s reusability, which could help SpaceX realize its costly, long-term plans.

Up for election will be Elisa Steele, chief executive of Jive Software; Marcus Ryu, chief executive of Guidewire Software; and Richard Haddrill, vice chairman of Scientific Games Corp.
