As if today we are able to recover the first stage of the rocket only , 2nd or the 3rd stage is burned away in the atmosphere. Recovering the 2nd/3rd stage or complete rocket 100% is still challenging. It took almost 10yrs of development to be able to recover 1st stage. Recovering the upper stage is challenging as it travels with the speed of the bullet and would have little or no fuel to pull it back to ground to reuse it. Options :  Recover 100% rocket by building only 1 stage rocket , like a glide rocket. Launched in the form of rocket but recovered in the form of airplane landing. Reuse the upper stage in orbit to build a space station or spaceship by refuelling it to travel exploratory missions to
