Default SpaceX Flight rate


So, I got curious earlier today and started to look up some numbers:

So far, as of today there have been 70 launches.
16 of those were by Falcon 9.
That's 23% of all flights world-wide, nearly 1/4.
At this rate, they'll most likely hit 25% by the end of the year.

The next most flown booster is the R-7 (two variants of the Soyuz) at
flights.

And of the Falcon 9 flights, 3 reflights of boosters with at least one more
scheduled this year (3 more if Heavy makes it).

So, I can say with some confidence that even if nothing else changes, is
already a success. And had a huge impact on the market.

Next year only promises to get better.

But Greg, Mayfly is convinced that it will all turn into baked ziti
next year and be a total flop. Doesn't that influence your view at
all?
