Which American rocket launch sites had the most space launches?

  • Cape Canaveral Air Force Station (Florida)
  • Kennedy Space Center (Florida)
  • Vandenberg Air Force Base (California)

The three above are the most used rocket launch sites of America. You may want to define Cape Canaveral and KSC as one and the same (Cape Kennedy). They're followed by Wallops (Virginia), White Sands (New Mexico) and the Corn Ranch (Texas). If you include rocketplanes you could also include the Mojave Air and Spaceport in California.

    $\begingroup$ @OrganicMarble Whatever. We can also call it the Merritt Island Space Launch Area. $\endgroup$ – Giovanni Aug 28 at 15:00
  • $\begingroup$ Thanks. Got some numbers? $\endgroup$ – Joe Jobs Aug 28 at 17:10
  • $\begingroup$ @JoeJobs No, sorry. But they are really frequently used. Perhaps 3 orbital launches per month on average (6 if you define CCAFS and KSC as the same), or something. $\endgroup$ – Giovanni Aug 28 at 18:11
  • $\begingroup$ have you checked the What's up at Wallops app? they may not launch the larges rockets but for sounding rockets it might be worth checking. $\endgroup$ – uhoh Sep 27 at 16:07
