Just out of curiosity, and because we hopefully are at the dawn of reusable launchers, what items have been sent to orbit from Earth, then landed on Earth and sent back to orbit?
The space shuttles of course, but did they bring any satellites back and up again? And same for X-37. Are or have there been more spacecrafts like that? Soviet Zenit spy satellites returned capsules with film, has any such system led to relaunch of material? Manned flight, like those to the ISS today, also offer opportunities for reuse of payload, but is it done, and for what? I suppose it was a unique event that the RTG from the crashed Nimbus B weather satellite was salvaged and reused on Nimbus 3. And has anything been sent to the Moon twice?
