  • Ismael Flores 2024-01-06 at 20:47 on Past Falcon LaunchesOvzon 3 mission is missing. Congrats for this great site.
  • scr00chy 2023-12-24 at 23:08 on SpaceX StatisticsNot really, there are too many unknowns, so you can only get rough estimates at best.
  • Themine 2023-12-24 at 09:52 on SpaceX StatisticsCan we know the payload mass for transporter missions
  • Ramiro Rivero 2023-11-16 at 18:25 on Overview of Falcon BoostersThank you very much, @SpaceNosey. It has been a long journey, and this infographic has been one of my favorites for several years. Already in May 2022 I was with the feeling that it was very difficult to keep up with the high cadence. Perhaps, we cpuld try to teach an AI how to make it.
  • Dave 2023-11-03 at 11:51 on SpaceX Mission Patchestry to contact you-need-patches, you can made a request patch on them. They bring high quality embroidery
  • scr00chy 2023-10-15 at 00:13 on SpaceX Launch ManifestYeah, it was a typo. It's fixed now, thanks for letting me know.
  • scr00chy 2023-10-15 at 00:12 on SpaceX StatisticsYou're right! Forgot to update that stat. Should be fixed now.
  • Jose Cornejo 2023-10-14 at 17:16 on SpaceX Launch ManifestIn the launch manifest, for the USSF 52, booster 1066.4 is mentioned, it would probably be 1065.5, since 1066 no longer exists.

  • Tom 2023-09-25 at 14:58 on Overview of Falcon BoostersJust one comment, launch complex for most recent mission on Sept. 25 should be "SLC-4E". Thank you.
  • scr00chy 2023-09-25 at 09:47 on Overview of Falcon BoostersIt should be updated now. 🙂
  • Tom 2023-09-24 at 12:55 on Overview of Falcon BoostersThanks for all the work you guys do to give us this information!! Just an fyi: Booster 1058 should have the September 19 launch...thank you!
  • Gunter Krebs 2023-09-24 at 00:32 on Falcon rockets use three configurations of their upper stage. How are they different?this means we have at least four (or even up to six) versions of the upper stage, depending on which engine is used. So far the short-nozzle engine has only used with standard versions and I am not sure if it is available with the medium or long duration kits.
  • Ramiro Rivero 2023-09-21 at 14:09 on SpaceX StatisticsIt seems that the cadence is so high that this page is falling behind.
  • Ramiro Rivero 2023-09-21 at 14:08 on Overview of Falcon BoostersSoory, but it seems that it was Booster 1058 which made the 17th landing!
  • scr00chy 2023-08-22 at 23:36 on Past Falcon LaunchesThanks, it should be fixed now. I was on vacation last week, so some updates might have been delayed or incomplete. Let me know if you spot any other issues.
  • Ismael Flores 2023-08-22 at 18:19 on Past Falcon LaunchesStarlink 6-10 is missing. Good job anyway!
  • jose cornejo 2023-08-22 at 14:57 on Overview of Falcon Boostersinteresting as always, please check the overview page, viasat-3 appears double, with booster 1052 and 1053
  • Ramiro Rivero 2023-08-16 at 12:28 on SpaceX StatisticsInteresting to see that in no time, the number of reused falcon launches will surpass all the launches of some of the Soyuz variants!!!! It has already surpassed many rocket systems like the Ariane. Some booster have neen already launched more tiems than some rockets like the Saturn V. Than all the launches of Saturn V
  • scr00chy 2023-08-03 at 20:19 on Falcon rockets use three configurations of their upper stage. How are they different?Interesting theory. I think SpaceX themselves said the shorter nozzle reduces costs, so that part isn't speculation, but maybe the reduced Gs are a nice bonus?
  • Lance 2023-08-03 at 17:23 on Falcon rockets use three configurations of their upper stage. How are they different?Are we sure it's a cost-saving measure instead of a G-force-reducing measure? For example if the payload were significantly lighter (or just more delicate), a shorter nozzle would mean less performance aka less G-forces, which would in theory reduce the G-forces experienced by the payload during 2nd stage burns.
  • scr00chy 2023-07-31 at 16:04 on Falcon rockets use three configurations of their upper stage. How are they different?Yes, they use a Merlin Vacuum engine with a shorter nozzle on some missions that aren't very demanding performance-wise. It's a cost-saving measure.
  • Ramiro Rivero 2023-07-31 at 15:31 on Falcon rockets use three configurations of their upper stage. How are they different?Thank you! Is it known if there are also any differences with the engines? I saw at least one second stage with a different Merlin engine, way shorter than the engines I'm used to.
  • scr00chy 2023-06-12 at 11:46 on SpaceX Launch ManifestIs that confirmed?
  • Themine 2023-06-12 at 11:31 on SpaceX Launch ManifestI think USSF-31 will use FH

  • scr00chy 2023-05-03 at 07:51 on SpaceX StatisticsThanks for the reminder. This should now be fixed.
  • Jose Cornejo 2023-05-03 at 00:33 on SpaceX Statisticsstat "Highest Mass Launched to GEO on a Falcon Heavy" has changed with the last Heavy
  • scr00chy 2023-04-28 at 10:07 on SpaceX Booster LandingsI think most of these stats are already being tracked on these two pages: https://www.elonx.net/spacex-statistics/ https://www.elonx.net/overview-of-falcon-boosters/
  • Dick Eagleson 2023-04-28 at 07:11 on SpaceX Booster LandingsThe line-item detail is interesting and valuable, but it would also be nice to have totals for all attempts, all successes and current number of consecutive successes (length of winning streak). Ideally, those three numbers would be part of each line item showing their values as of the date of each individual attempt and, if successful, landing. Say the word and I'll make a run at compiling such numbers myself for all past attempts and...
  • scr00chy 2023-04-09 at 21:57 on Past Falcon LaunchesThanks. Fixed. 🙂

  • scr00chy 2023-04-04 at 16:14 on DocumentsGood to know, thanks!
  • tickelstuff 2023-04-03 at 12:21 on DocumentsSimilarly, if you remove the "-pl" (past launch) suffix off the SpaceX launch URLs and stick that into the wayback machine, you can get the original launch page and copy that to a PressKit PDF. There's a few copies of the SDA 0A launch available: https://web.archive.org/web/20230000000000*/https://www.spacex.com/launches/mission/?missionId=SDA-Tranche0A
  • Elthiryel 2023-04-02 at 08:50 on DocumentsSure, feel free to use them.
  • scr00chy 2023-03-31 at 21:17 on DocumentsThat's awesome, thanks! I took the liberty and used some of your kits to improve my database. I hope that's okay.
  • Elthiryel 2023-03-31 at 13:44 on DocumentsI have one, if this format is fine for you. I am just not posting these press kits to NSF forums anymore, as I don't think they have been popular since soltasto is posting the OCRed version. But I am still making them for my website for most of the launches. https://spacex.com.pl/files/2023-03/starlink-group-5-5-press-kit.pdf

  • scr00chy 2023-03-29 at 08:11 on DocumentsSorry, can't. Nobody has made the press kit for that mission.
  • Monty Hahn 2023-03-29 at 04:58 on DocumentsIn the documents page under 2023 : please add starlink 5-5

  • scr00chy 2023-03-18 at 14:34 on SpaceX StatisticsYou're right! I didn't even realize. It's been updated now. Thanks!
  • Ismael Flores 2023-03-18 at 14:25 on SpaceX StatisticsShortest time between launches is now 4 hours and 12 minutes (Starlink 2-8 and SES-18/19)

  • Vince Maroni 2023-03-15 at 03:01 on SpaceX Mission PatchesWildly inappropriate. Space Store is super reputable.
  • Tom 2023-01-16 at 17:03 on Overview of Falcon BoostersIt's just alternating shades of blue making it easier to determine which booster number you're looking at.
  • scr00chy 2023-01-04 at 11:49 on DocumentsI've removed 2-4 for now, but 5-1 is already there (just in a suboptimal format).

  • What does dark blue background versus light blue b 2022-11-15 at 11:35 on Overview of Falcon BoostersWhat does dark blue background versus light blue background mean?
  • scr00chy 2022-11-02 at 10:16 on SpaceX StatisticsHi, thanks for the suggestions. I added "heaviest payload to GEO" and "heaviest FH payload to GTO" but I think that's enough. There are many types of orbit and it's not useful to try to track stats for all of them, the main ones are enough (LEO, GTO, GEO, overall). But later I'll probably add Moon and Mars.
  • Ramiro Rivero 2022-11-01 at 12:34 on SpaceX StatisticsHello. And thank you for your hard work. I would like to propose, along the lines of "haviest payload", to prepare a different subset for Falcon Heavy. It seems that we will have some more launches in the years to come, and it will bring you with: Heaviest direct to Geosattaionary Orbir Interplanetary Moon orbit Also, the Falcon has some missions like DART, that i don't know if they are just LEO, GTO or direct...
  • scr00chy 2022-09-29 at 11:02 on Overview of Falcon BoostersYou can find this information on my Czech website (last column in the first table): https://www.elonx.cz/prehled-raketovych-stupnu/
  • Jose Cornejo 2022-09-29 at 02:46 on Overview of Falcon BoostersGood graphic, could you add something: several boosters are already programmed to fly, if they could include that information it would be great
  • scr00chy 2022-09-21 at 12:41 on Overview of Falcon BoostersThanks for the feedback. It should be fixed now.
  • gemmy0I 2022-09-21 at 04:00 on Overview of Falcon BoostersFYI, the current graphic (last updated 2022-09-20 after the Starlink 4-34 launch on 2022-09-18/19) is missing the second-most-recent launch, Starlink 4-2/Blue Walker 3 (B1058.14, 2022-09-10/11). IIRC, this launch was present on the preceding version of the graphic, so it seems to have gotten dropped accidentally when 4-34 was added. Also, a minor nitpick: the date on B1069.1 is listed as "Dic 21 2021" rather than "Dec 21 2021". (Guessing this is a bilingual slip-up since...
  • scr00chy 2022-08-31 at 06:47 on SpaceX Booster LandingsNot sure how you're counting, but if you agree with the 138 successes, adding the 11 non-ocean failed landings in this list gives you 149 attempts total, so it seems to check out.
  • Eric Ralph 2022-08-31 at 05:12 on SpaceX Booster LandingsI'm curious, how are you counting these to get 149 total landing attempts? I understand the 138 successes but I'm counting 154 total landing attempts in this list, 10 of which intentionally targeted the ocean instead of a pad or ship, so 144 total recovery attempts. Maybe I'm miscounting or missing some hidden logic.
  • scr00chy 2022-08-30 at 10:52 on List of Falcon Static FiresYou're right. It's fixed now. Thanks for letting me know.
  • Max 2022-08-30 at 01:36 on List of Falcon Static FiresI noticed the gaps are missing for the two latest static fires.
  • scr00chy 2022-05-29 at 21:46 on SpaceX used to conduct static fire tests before every launch, but not anymore. Why is that?Yeah, that definitely happened a few times, especially in the early days, but even more recently.
  • HdwJunkie 2022-05-29 at 14:08 on SpaceX used to conduct static fire tests before every launch, but not anymore. Why is that?I believe there was was one (or more) launches aborted after ignition (https://www.cbsnews.com/news/spacex-falcon-9-rocket-safely-aborts-takeoff-after-engine-ignition-and-shutdown/). My guess is that telemetry, and comparison of the pre-launch telemetry data to "family" data, prior to actual release of the hold downs, is equivalent to the data collected during a static fire.

  • scr00chy 2022-05-20 at 11:32 on SpaceX Launch ManifestThat's not confirmed yet. And USSF-52 might be delayed as well, for all we know. But I've now adjusted it to indicated the uncertainty. Thanks for the note.
  • Max 2022-05-19 at 22:42 on SpaceX Launch ManifestWith USSF-44 and 52 swapped, the numbering of the side boosters needs changing.
  • scr00chy 2022-05-07 at 09:00 on Overview of Falcon BoostersYou should probably ask SpaceNosey about future plan since he's creating the graphic, I just host the image. But I doubt we could make it interactive, that's beyond my capabilities.
  • Ramiro Rivero 2022-05-06 at 12:28 on Overview of Falcon BoostersThis graphic is great, but with the high cadence and number of resuses, it is getting very hard. Do you have any plan about it? Could it be a "roll over the core number and a pop up displays the information?
  • scr00chy 2022-04-03 at 16:14 on SpaceX Fairing RecoveriesNo, it's random. I gave up trying to track these things because it's becoming impossible to do so accurately. SpaceX has been sharing less and less information about fairing reuse and sometimes there are no photos of recovered fairings available, so it becomes too much of a guessing game.
  • Max 2022-04-02 at 14:56 on SpaceX Fairing RecoveriesIn the last two columns, do the left and right of the slash refer to passive/active or viceversa or random? I am tracking individual fairing halves and I use your table to validate my guesses. Thanks for this great resource.
  • scr00chy 2022-03-31 at 19:46 on Past Falcon LaunchesArgh, thanks for catching this copy/paste error. 🙂 It's fixed now.

  • Ramiro Rivero 2022-03-15 at 16:33 on SpaceX StatisticsThank you for that. It could also be interesting to follow the different Falcon 9 blocks. There was a discussion with Berger from Ars Technica, and since Soyuz have been flying since the '50s; it could be interesting to see how the different models have been performing. Block 5 are the ones that are human rated, it seems there has be no problems with this iteration, and that could be a most direct comparison between...
  • scr00chy 2022-03-14 at 11:04 on Overview of Falcon BoostersYes, it's updated after every launch.
  • nie 2022-03-14 at 02:59 on Overview of Falcon BoostersI saw it. I followed on Twitter. thank you for sharing.
  • nie 2022-03-14 at 02:57 on Overview of Falcon BoostersThat's a very cool picture. Does that update every launch?
  • scr00chy 2022-03-11 at 14:55 on SpaceX StatisticsGood idea. I'll rework the section about fairings a little when I find some time.
  • Ramiro Rivero 2022-03-09 at 17:16 on SpaceX StatisticsExcuse me, but since SpaceX is not going to try to catch the fairings, to mee it seems better if it goes as a separated part, and start trying to count the "fished" or "salvaged" fairings, and reutilization. But I don`t know where to get that info.
  • Ramiro Rivero 2022-02-03 at 19:30 on SpaceX StatisticsThank you. My wishes were granted.! Keep with this amazing Project.
  • scr00chy 2022-02-03 at 18:59 on SpaceX StatisticsThere were three launches in quick succession, so I've decided to update the stats after they were all completed. It's done now.
  • Ramiro Rivero 2022-02-03 at 11:40 on SpaceX StatisticsAlso this information is somehow out of date
  • Ramiro Rivero 2022-02-03 at 11:39 on Overview of Falcon Boostersi really like this graphic, but it seems not up to date. We have had several launches in the last couple of weeks.
  • Joseph Archer 2022-01-30 at 17:09 on How much does it cost to launch a reused Falcon 9? Elon Musk explains why reusability is worth itBest engineers? not so sure. 9 rockets or 27 rocket boosters begs the question. really? Arguably a single nozzle, perhaps fed by multiple pumps, makes more sense. Beyond that, their failure to employ a launch tube, cannon type launch speaks to a serious lack of foresight.
  • scr00chy 2022-01-19 at 23:59 on SpaceX Smallsat RidesharesIt's an assumption based on this article, which said: AST SpaceMobile was set to launch with SpaceX between March 1, 2022 and April 30, 2022, and has now submitted a rebooking notice for a revised launch window targeting summer 2022. The final launch timing is dependent on SpaceX.
