SpaceX will launch a rocket every 2 to 3 weeks
In an interview with Reuters, Gwynne Shotwell CEO of the aerospace company founded by Elon Musk shared the company's plans for the coming months. And she said that the company will launch a rocket every two to three weeks from now on.
SpaceX hopes to be able to send a rocket into space every two or three weeks “We should be launching every two to three weeks,” SpaceX President Gwynne Shotwell told Reuters in an interview. A pace the company plans to inaugurate next week, as soon as the work of its new launch pad, installed in Florida, will be completed.
The new launch pad, with an estimated cost of $ 100 million, is located at NASA's Kennedy Space Center, north of Cape Canaveral site. And it comes to replace the one that the company lost last September, during the explosion of its rocket Falcon 9.
According to Reuters, SpaceX is scheduled to finish the new pad next week.
