Despite multiple scrubs and delays due to weather violations, SpaceX broke its own cadence record in January with 10 launches and landings in a calendar month. Those weather challenges have prevailed into February. Between these and the pad logistics related to launching the Intuitive Machines IM-1 mission, PACE satellite, USSF-124, and an upcoming crewed mission, it currently looks unlikely that the company will repeat this target by the end of February.
Nonetheless, SpaceX continues to set milestones, with Falcon 9’s 300th mission occurring with the launch of the IM-1 on Feb. 15 and booster B1082 achieving SpaceX’s 200th successful landing since the last failed one, during the Starlink Group 7-14 mission. The company almost launched a Falcon 9 from each of its three key launch pads within eight hours on the busy evening of Feb. 14, but the initial attempt of the Starlink Group 7-14 mission was scrubbed while on the pad. Despite this, SpaceX still reset the record for the shortest amount of time between three consecutive launches of Falcon to almost 23 hours when that mission flew the next day.
