Why does Vandenberg SFB have the most launches? Is it related to location, when it was founded, something else, etc?
It would make more sense for Florida to have more launches. It is illegal for rockets to fly over the U.S. mainland, so rockets from Florida launches from the east, giving them an extra 1000 miles per hour from the rotational velocity of Earth, while rockets from Vandenberg lose 1000 miles per hour from the rotational velocity of Earth. This makes it easier to launches from Florida. So, why does Vandenberg have the most launches?
