  1. The more important metric is pad cycle time, not their salvo capability. Thankfully Starlink provides a launch on readiness stream of payloads to backfill when customer payloads get delayed.

    • That is true, although the fact that they can operationalise three launches in three days speaks something of their organisational capacity. Clearly the people who were getting each rocket ready to launch weren’t the same set.

  2. Cool. Still in route for 52 flacon 9 launches in a year.

    And Starship will have to break that record several times over, to be considered a success as per their own metrics.
