It is both.

SpaceX launches 3rd crew with recycled rocket and capsule
Quote:
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) - SpaceX launched four astronauts into orbit Friday using a recycled rocket and capsule, the third crew flight in less than a year for Elon Musk's rapidly expanding company.

The astronauts from the U.S., Japan and France should reach the International Space Station early Saturday morning, following a 23-hour ride in the same Dragon capsule used by SpaceX's debut crew last May. They'll spend six months at the orbiting lab.

It was the first time SpaceX reused a capsule and rocket to launch astronauts for NASA, after years of proving the capability on station supply runs. The rocket was used last November on the company's second astronaut flight.

We have seen a sequence in a random video about NASA flying a helicopter on Mars. We didn't dig into it, maybe we find some free time this weekend, but it seems to be a big deal... We came to this thread especially to see if any link to there, but it seems it escaped the guards here
We will search later. Pinky promise.
