Falcon 9 is a pretty cheap rocket, almost half the price of, say, soyuz. I understand that this is due to the uniqueness of the capabilities of the rocket itself, and by that I mean reusing it. However, half the price for the falcon isn't really that much considering the fact that the fuel itself costs around 300 thousand dollars or so. There has to be some profit, of course, there are the recovery crew and vehicles etc but if you consider the fact that a new falcon 9 launch costs 62 million dollars, it isn't that obvious where the money goes. the craft itself couldn't be only 12-20 million dollar either. So what goes into costs of launching it? I hope I made myself clear, but if not please let me know.
