Since SpaceX lands their rockets on drone ships (aka ASDS, barges), I'm curious what if anything would prevent rockets from being relaunched from the ship.
Obviously the ship would need infrastructure to refuel the rocket and connect a new payload / fairing.
Besides this, are there any physics problems with launching? IE:
- Could the platform be made strong enough to survive the rocket blast?
- Would the barge sink into the water from the lift-off thrust?
- Would the barge be too unstable to launch off of?
There'd be some huge advantages in terms of launch cadence and "owning" the launch range ...
