SpaceX Statistics
Launch Count

41/46 (89.13%)

SpaceX is hoping to pick up the pace with "launches every 2 weeks" some time this year, likely when LC40 is repaired and back online

39/41 (95.12%)

Yet to fly

The highly anticipated Falcon Heavy is currently expected to fly as soon as November 2017. SpaceX fans are crossing their fingers hard, all around the world.

2/5 (40%)

The Falcon 1 was an expendable launch vehicle developed and build by SpaceX between 2006 and 2009. Falcon 1 first achieved orbit after 3 failures on its forth flight, and was retired after a successful fifth

Yet to fly

ITS Ship testing is currently expected to begin in late 2018 with booster testing mid 2019 and orbital testing in 2020. The first Mars flight is currently NET mid 2022

Launches Per Year


Could this be the year SpaceX launches 24 times in a year? An average of once per fortnight?

8/9 (88.9%)

SpaceX launches were grounded after failure during the AMOS-6 static fire on September 1 resulting in the loss of the vehicle, payload and launch pad.

6/7 (85.7%)

SpaceX launches were grounded after a failure of an upper stage strut during CRS-7 on June 28 which resulted in the loss of the vehicle. Dragon did survive the initial failure but waste lost upon impact with the ocean, software has since been changed so in a similar situation Dragon will deploy its parachutes and attempt to save its self.


Multiple CRS, LEO & GTO missions


A second successful CRS mission followed by the first commercial primary payload to LEO (Polar) and then the first GTO payload for SpaceX


A second demo of Dragon followed by a successful first ISS resupply further proved SpaceX's ability to reach orbit, deliver cargo to the ISS and survive reentry for a successful splashdown and recovery


The first flight of the Falcon 9 and the maiden flight of Dragon 1 were both successful missions and great milestones for SpaceX

Launch Sites

25/27 (92.6%)

Cape Canaveral is the most used launch facility by SpaceX until pad LC40 was destroyed in the AMOS-6 mishap. All launches from the east coast will be from KSC until LC40 has been repaired.


Later in the year Falcon Heavy will make its maiden flight from this pad and in a few years ITS will leave for Mars from this very pad which the Apollo missions launched from


Vandenberg is used for payloads requiring a polar orbit and is expecting to host up to 8 launches in 2017

2/5 (40%)

Kwajalein was where Falcon 1 was launched from and is no longer actively used by SpaceX

Under construction

A launch facility is being constructed in Boca Chica, Texas

Turn Arounds
16 days, 2 hours, 12 minutes ago
The last launch (Sep 07 2017) was Boeing X-37B OTV-5 onboard a Falcon 9 B4 from KSC, LC-39A
2 days, 1 hour, 15 minutes
Fastest ever turnaround was between BulgariaSat-1 (Jun 23 2017) and Iridium-2 (11-20) (Jun 25 2017)
13 days, 2 hours, 52 minutes
Fastest turnaround at Cape Canaveral was between CRS-6 (Apr 14 2015) and TurkmenAlem52E / MonacoSAT (Apr 27 2015)
12 days, 4 hours, 28 minutes
Fastest turnaround at KSC was between BulgariaSat-1 (Jun 23 2017) and Intelsat 35e (Jul 05 2017)
59 days, 22 hours, 26 minutes
Fastest turnaround at Vandenberg was between Iridium-2 (11-20) (Jun 25 2017) and FormoSat-5 (Aug 24 2017)

Booster Reuse

16/21 (76.19%)

SpaceX has successfully landed 7 times at LZ-1 on a concrete pad and 9 times at sea on the autonomous drone ships (6 on "Of Course I Still Love You" and 3 on "Just Read The Instructions")

2 successful reflights (and two second landings!)

Core 21 flew for CRS-8 & SES-10, core 29 flew for Iridium 1 & BulgariaSat-1, both cores successfully landed a second time!


2 COTS & 11/12 CRS

The only failure of a CRS mission so far was due to an upper stage strut failure on CRS-7, dragon its self has a 100% success rate
413 days, 12 hours, 50 minutes
During the two demo (COTS) flights and 12 CRS missions Dragon vehicles have spent almost a year in orbit, in total

~18,290 kg up & ~13,752 kg down

Dragon is currently the only active vehicle capable of bringing back significant amounts of cargo from the International Space Station


For the first time a Dragon-1 was reused for CRS-11, the refurbished dragon had previously flown for CRS-4

No crew have flown with Dragon yet.

Crew Dragon is expected to fly without crew in late 2017 and with crew in 2018

No crew have flown with Dragon yet.

Iridium-1, 10 satellites and payload adapter weighing 9,600 kg. The heaviest satellite was SES-9 weighing 5,271 kg.


First Mars (unmanned) landing expected in 2020

When Red Dragon lands on the surface of Mars it will be the heaviest object humans have landed on another planet

First cargo leave for Mars onboard ITS as soon as 2022

SpaceX plans to start a regular "freight line" between Earth and Mars starting optimistically as soon as 2022

0 (For now...)

ITS Mars flights may begin as soon as 2022 with human flights as soon as 2024
