This mission will launch the seventh batch of operational Starlink satellites, which are expected to be version 1.0, from SLC-40, Cape Canaveral AFS. It is the eighth Starlink launch overall. The satellites will be delivered to low Earth orbit and will spend a few weeks maneuvering to their operational altitude of 550 km. The booster for this mission is expected to land on JRTI on its first mission since arriving at Port Canaveral.

Starship - Hop Tests

SpaceX is conducting an experimental test program of its future launch vehicle, the Super Heavy/Starship. Incremental hop tests will serve to validate landing procedures for a reusable second stage and a heat shielding technology.

Launch History - Per Year

With an ever-increasing launch cadence, SpaceX has surpassed other launch providers by annual vehicles launched and continues, nearly year-on-year, to set vehicle flight records.

Recovery - Boosters Landed

Landed
For SpaceX to succeed at reducing the cost of getting payload to orbit, reusability of launch vehicles is imperative. The first phase of this involves returning the first stage of the rocket back safely to Earth intact - an incredibly difficult task involving a combination of three burns that must be executed perfectly.

Reuse - Reused flights

35
Reused flights
Once on the ground, the booster must be able to be refurbished and reflown in minimal time and with minimal cost. Only then can they be reflown, reducing launch costs significantly.

Payloads - Customers

SpaceX has many commercial customers as well as public agencies such as NASA and USAF.

Dragon - Missions

Dragon is SpaceX's orbital spacecraft, and has flown 25 times atop of a Falcon 9 rocket. In December 2010, Dragon became the first privately developed spacecraft to be successfully recovered from orbit. Dragon 2 extends Dragon's ability to carry not only cargo, but crew too.

In April 2009, Michael S. Malone revealed, while interviewing Elon Musk, that the two had a bet that SpaceX would put a man on Mars by "2020 or 2025". Musk has continued to reiterate this rough timeframe since. This countdown clock expires on 1 January 2026, at 00:00 UTC.No pressure, Elon.
