Considering trying to bring upper stage back on Falcon Heavy demo flight for full reusability. Odds of success low, but maybe worth a shot.

Total cost for a Falcon 9 launch is around about $61 million. 1st stage is approx 3/4 total cost. Therefore, 2nd stage: ~$16 million.

Fairing is ~$5M, but that should be reusable this year. Am fairly confident we can reuse upper stage too by late next year to get to 100%.
