Didn’t bother with an engine test on the pad either. Straight from McGregor test to flight…on a nasa mission noless.


4th successful Dragon launch… so including their falcon 9 launches they have a total of 20 launches total in 2021! That’s almost a launch every other week! We’re living in the real space race.


And with this launch SpaceX *finally* catches up with the Atlas V in terms of the number of entirely newly manufactured rockets launched so far this year (1).


With so many launches I wonder if they will return to their original goal of reusing the second stage as well. They sure know how to land such things by now.


How many crew/cargo Dragons are there and are they building more?
