[/news/spacex-guide-to-elon-musk-space-company/ SpaceX] is on schedule to launch five of its Falcon 9 rockets in the span of about a month, starting with its [/news/spacex-launch-reactions-humanity-needs-hope-george-takei-says/ historic success sending NASA astronauts to orbit] on May 27 and followed by three Starlink launches, with plans to boost a GPS satellite on June 30. Continuing this near weekly pace of launches would allow Elon Musk's commercial space startup to pretty easily set a new company record for most launches in a year.
The 11th SpaceX launch of 2020 is currently set for Tuesday from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida, with the 12th tentatively planned for a week later.
