SpaceX Hopes to Launch a Record Number of Rockets Into Space Next Year





SpaceX announced a very aggressive goal for rocket launches in 2024. The Elon Musk-owned company hopes to launch 144 rockets into space in 2024.

That goal would more than double the 61 rockets it launched in 2022. It would also almost be exactly double what SpaceX has launched this year, with 74 rockets so far, according to The company is aiming to hit 100 by the end of the year.

“As we look to next year, we want to increase that flight rate to about 12 flights per month, or 144 flights,” said Bill Gerstenmaier, the vice president of build and flight reliability at SpaceX, on Wednesday at the “Promoting Safety, Innovation and Competitiveness in U.S. Commercial Human Space Activities” hearing.

If SpaceX is able to hit its 144 number, that would work out to be one rocket launch every 2.5 days on average in 2024.

A large number of these launches are expected to be for SpaceX’s Starlink service, but other satellites from third-party customers will also be included.

At this rate, SpaceX should be able to soon reach its goal of offering internet anywhere in the world at any time as long as you have a clear view of the sky above. Not only that, but many other important satellites and deliveries to space will be made in 2024 by SpaceX.
