For the first time ever, the
company is actually matching or exceeding extremely lofty launch cadence targets publicly revealed by Musk this year.
In the first five months of 2022
SpaceX has completed 22 successful launches. In the last seven months, SpaceX has completed 30 launches.
The company is on track to
launch just over once per week in the first half of the year after Musk revealed a goal of 52-60 launches in 2022.
SpaceX’s Starlink satellite internet
constellation has secured close to half a million customers in 32 countries two and a half years after operational satellite launches began.
The constellation has
almost 2400 working satellites in orbit, of which almost 1800 are operational.
There’s a good chance that
half of all active satellites will be owned and operated by SpaceX within the next few months.
