Reusable Launch Vehicles

This section contain reusable launch vehicles. A reusable launch system (RLV) is a launch system which is capable of launching a launch vehicle into space more than once. This contrasts with expendable launch systems, where each launch vehicle is launched once and then discarded. No true orbital reusable launch system is currently in use.
