SpaceX set the new record of highest number of orbital launches this year
On 28th December SpaceX set the record for the highest number of launches ever conducted by the company. It has completed its 60th mission and the latest mission was about the launch of 54 Starlink satellites by Falcon 9 rocket. The Falcon 9 rocket lifted off at 3:03 pm IST from Launch Complex 40 (SLC – 40) at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida. SpaceX is working on creating a low-orbit space network of satellites that will be able to provide a network facility to distant habitats of humans.
Elon Musk congratulated SpaceX on this milestone and wrote,” Congratulations SpaceX Falcon team on 60 successful launches this year”. If we talk about the data, 2022 witnessed almost double the launch by SpaceX than 2021 which means it’s likely to go up next year. Next year is also full of plans in which SpaceX has planned to work on crewed launches.
The dearMoon is one of the projects that are in the headlines since Indian actor Dev Joshi aka Balveer name has come out for the journey.
