Musk reiterated the origin of the SpaceX production model, saying fuel
is only 0.3 percent of the total cost of a rocket, with construction
materials accounting for no more than 2 percent of the total cost, which
for the Falcon 9 is about $60 million.
Given that the rocket's constituent materials are such a small part of
the total vehicle cost, he said: "Clearly people were doing something
silly in how they put those materials together. By eliminating those
foolish things, we were able to make a rocket for much less."
