News Synopsis

The founder and CEO of SpaceX, Elon Musk has said that the company is aiming to launch its most-used rocket, Falcon 9 once every week on average this year. Falcon 9 is a 70-meter high reusable launch vehicle and has flown into orbit 140 times ever since it was first built.

The CEO has confirmed reports that the aerospace company was planning to launch 52 rockets into orbit this year. The company launched another rocket earlier this week, making it the sixth launch in 2022. 

The fourth launch of Falcon 9 was delayed four consecutive times due to bad weather and because of a Royal Caribbean cruise ship sailing into hazard area of the launch zone. The launch was aborted seconds before due to this.
