Two days after a last-second scrub, SpaceX launched a Falcon 9 rocket with the SiriusXM-7 (SXM-7) high power broadcasting satellite. The Falcon 9 lofted SXM-7 to a geostationary transfer orbit (GTO).
The SXM-7 mission will continue to break records SpaceX set in 2018. With 21 launches in 2018, SpaceX broke that record with the Sentinel-6A Michael Freilich mission in November 2020. The SXM-7 mission will mark the 25th flight of the year for SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket.
