The idea of a reusable rocket to deliver people and supplies to the international space station is certain to succeed, given the small but correctible errors identified with each failure that in the aggregate converges on enventual success.  This will certainly breathe new life into Tesla, which is also rumored to be pioneering the development of a longer lasting rechargeable battery for its cars.  The development of affordable space travel and transport will revolutionize human civilization.

But, what is so "Chinese" in characteristic of Elon Musk's attempts to make rockets reusable is his belief that practice makes perfect.  With his attitude, he could easily have vied for Zhuang Yuan awards in the old Chinese scholastic tradition.  Nobody is born perfect, but those who try over and over again to achieve perfection, cannot be faulted for failing a hundred times, if only to finally achieve permanent success.

China should be inspired by Musk's persistence, diligence, attention to details, and devotion to his task.  It only proves the Chinese proverb, 人定胜天
