SpaceX will set a unique record today: 100 successful launches of a Falcon 9 rocket in a row



Today SpaceX is to send another batch of 60 Starlink satellites into orbit. As a result, the number of devices in the system will exceed 1,650, but the main thing in today’s flight is different: if everything goes well (SpaceX has already taught that there are no problems with the Falcon 9), this will be the hundredth successful rocket launch in a row.

And some more statistics. Today’s launch will be 16 since early 2021, meaning Falcon 9 launches on average every 9 days. But even more recently: today’s launch is the sixth in the last 33 days. It turns out that over the past month, Falcon 9 took off into the air every 5.5 days. Comparison with a fixed-route taxi suggests itself.

Falcon 9 is now mainly launching Starlink satellites into orbit, but there will be many commercial missions in the summer: one is reserved for NASA, and the launch of GPS III and Sirius XM satellites is also planned.
