"This is the second resupply mission for NASA where we are not only flying a flight-proven booster but we are also flying a Dragon that has already been to the International Space Station", SpaceX's Jessica Jensen, director of Dragon mission management, told reporters Sunday. It was launched on April 2 with a Falcon 9 rocket of SpaceX on a NASA-contracted mission. Such reuse is part of SpaceX's plan to slash the cost of spaceflight, thereby opening the heavens to exploration.
Dragon freighters aren't likely to see such heavy reuse, at least not in the near future.

The Dragon will remain at the ISS until next month, when crewmembers will load it up with about 3,900 lbs. The capsule will depart and maneuver its way to a splashdown in the Pacific Ocean off Baja California, where SpaceX personnel will retrieve it by boat.
On the other hand, the Falcon 9 rocket that carried the Dragon could not be recovered.
