# Largest number of rockets launched into space from a given launch site in a 24 hour period?

Question: What is the largest number of rockets launched into space from a given launch site in a 24 hour period? Where, when, why?

"into space" means $$\ge$$ 100 km, but pretty close to 100 km would still count. However a hobby rocket launch-a-thon topping out at a kilometer or two wouldn't.

Thus answers to Most busy times in US space launches? are not likely to cover this.

• @RussellBorogove at first it looks like it but those are all orbital launches. There may turn out to be a much more interesting event involving sounding rockets with a number much larger than single digits. So I've added a link to that question back in the post. Thanks!

• Do you have a particular event in mind? Aug 13 '21 at 3:39
• @RussellBorogove I'd read about one, but I can't track it down now. It seemed like a "launch-a-thon" for scientists.

I'm working my way through the past missions listed by the NASA Sounding Rockets Program Office, which has a few multiple launches, mostly doubles.

Standouts include:
