SpaceX Falcon 9 Version 1.2
« on: 03/25/2015 02:07 AM »
This is specifically about Version 1.2  of Falcon 9. How is it different to Version 1.1?
Merlin engine changes
First stage changes
Second stage changes
Trajectory changes
Impact on Falcon Heavy

Mods: There are a lot of references to the new version, but I can't find a specific thread, or any workable links to press releases. Please merge if appropriate.

First of all, wrong sub-forum. Your thread is not dealing with reusability.

Second, V1.2 is not an official name for it.  They may end up calling it that, but I doubt it.

Besides, there is at least one thread on this already. Search better - in the general SpaceX forum.

As for sources, the primary one is this tweet from Musk: https://twitter.com/elonmusk/status/572257004938403840
