Which American rocket launch sites had the most space launches?
2$\begingroup$ How specific do you want? Pad, complex, facility? $\endgroup$– Organic MarbleAug 27, 2020 at 21:20
$\begingroup$ Sites. Like those this list - en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_rocket_launch_sites - not sure if they are complex or facility $\endgroup$– Joe JobsAug 27, 2020 at 21:26
- 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.
1$\begingroup$ There is no such place as Cape Kennedy since 1973. space.stackexchange.com/a/28152/6944 $\endgroup$ Aug 28, 2020 at 14:17
1$\begingroup$ @OrganicMarble Whatever. We can also call it the Merritt Island Space Launch Area. $\endgroup$– GiovanniAug 28, 2020 at 15:00
$\begingroup$ Thanks. Got some numbers? $\endgroup$– Joe JobsAug 28, 2020 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. $\endgroup$– GiovanniAug 28, 2020 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. $\endgroup$– uhohSep 27, 2020 at 16:07
