  • Georg-ous headline, subby.

    Agreed.

    Howdy, everyone!
  • Sixth flight for this core, and a barge landing.  Good deal.
  • They've added another Starlink launch to the manifest this year, and there may be more to come.  That has launches through #15 on the schedule.

    Today's, if successful, ties them with 2018's launch tally.
  • ... aaaaand, Staging, second stage engine start.
  • Nicholas D. Wolfwood: Sixth flight for this core, and a barge landing.  Good deal.


    Sixth? That's uncharted territory isn't it?
  • Archie Goodwin: Nicholas D. Wolfwood: Sixth flight for this core, and a barge landing.  Good deal.

    Sixth? That's uncharted territory isn't it?


    No, they have another core that's done six.

    There's been one other 6-time launch & recovery, I think.

    Ah, OK. Thanks. It's hard to keep up.

    Seven will be a new record.

    Is Subby responsible if an astronomer has a heart attack this morning?

  • Here's the updated list of successful SpaceX Missions.  I've realigned the dates and order for upcoming flights.  Even if no more missions are added (and we fully expect more Starlink missions to be added as the year goes on), they are on pace to set a new record this year (28 launches), eclipsing the pace of 2018.

    2006 - 1 - Falcon 1

    FTFM.  2018 was their high-water mark.  They won't tie that record until late October / early November.
