SpaceX Statistics
Launch Count

37/42 (88.10%) total successful launches

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

35/37 (94.59%) successful Falcon 9 launches

Yet to fly

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

2/5 (40%) successful Falcon 1 launches

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

Launch Per Year

9 successful launches of the Falcon 9

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

8/9 (88.9%) successful launches of the Falcon 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%) successful launches of the Falcon 9

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.

6 successful launches of the Falcon 9

Multiple CRS, LEO & GTO missions

3 successful launches of the Falcon 9

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

2 successful launches of the Falcon 9

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

2 successful launches of the Falcon 9

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%) successful Falcon 9 launches

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.

7 successful Falcon 9 launches

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

4 successful Falcon 9 flights

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

2/5 (40%) successful Falcon 1 flights

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

Facility under construction

A launch facility is being constructed in Boca Chica, Texas

Turn Arounds
8 hours, 42 minutes ago
The last launch (Jun 25 2017) was Iridium-2 (11-20) onboard a Falcon 9 FT from VAFB, LC-4E
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)
14 days, 12 hours, 6 minutes
Fastest turnaround at KSC was between NROL-76 (May 01 2017) and Inmarsat 5-F4 (May 15 2017)
162 days, 2 hours, 31 minutes
Fastest turnaround at Vandenberg was between Iridium-1 (1-10) (Jan 14 2017) and Iridium-2 (11-20) (Jun 25 2017)

Booster Reuse

13/18 (72.22%) successful stage 1 landings

SpaceX has successfully landed 5 times at LZ-1 on a concrete pad and 8 times at sea on the autonomous drone ships (6 on "Of Course I Still Love You" and 2 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 demo flights & 10/11 successful CRS missions

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
311 days, 21 minutes
During the two demo (COTS) flights and 9 CRS missions Dragon vehicles have spent almost a year in orbit, in total

~18,290 kg sent & ~13,752 kg returned from the International Space Station via Dragon

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.

The heaviest payload SpaceX has launched was 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 could arrive with Red Dragon as soon as 2020

SpaceX plans to start a regular "freight line" between Earth and Mars starting as soon as 2020

0 (For now...)

ITS Mars flights may begin as soon as 2022 with human flights as soon as 2025
