List of Falcon 9 first-stage boosters

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Left to right: Falcon 9 v1.0, v1.1, v1.2 "Full Thrust", Falcon 9 Block 5, Falcon Heavy, and Falcon Heavy Block 5.

A Falcon 9 first-stage booster is a reusable rocket booster used on the Falcon 9 and Falcon Heavy orbital launch vehicles manufactured by SpaceX. The manufacture of first-stage booster constitutes about 60% of the launch price of a single expended Falcon 9[1] (and three of them over 80% of the launch price of an expended Falcon Heavy), which led SpaceX to develop a program dedicated to recovery and reuse of these boosters for a significant decrease in launch costs.[citation needed] After multiple attempts, some as early as 2010, at controlling the re-entry of the first stage after its separation from the second stage, the first successful controlled landing of a first stage occurred on 22 December 2015, on the first flight of the Full Thrust version. Since then, Falcon 9 first-stage boosters have been landed and recovered 318 times out of 329 attempts, including synchronized recoveries of the side-boosters of most Falcon Heavy flights.

In total 42 recovered boosters have been refurbished and subsequently flown at least a second time, with a record of 21 missions and landings carried by a single booster. SpaceX intentionally limited Block 3 and Block 4 boosters to flying only two missions each,[2][3] but the company indicated in 2018 that they expected the Block 5 versions to achieve ten flights, each with only minor refurbishment. This milestone was first achieved by Booster B1051 on the Starlink-27 mission in 2021.[4]

All boosters in Block 4 and earlier have been retired, expended, or lost. The last flight of a Block 4 booster was in June 2018. Since then all boosters in the active fleet are Block 5.

Booster names are a B followed by a four-digit number. The first Falcon 9 version, v1.0, had boosters B0001 to B0007. All following boosters were numbered sequentially starting at B1001, the number 1 standing for first-stage booster.

List of boosters[edit]

v1.0 and v1.1[edit]

SpaceX attempted parachute of the Falcon 9 v1.0 first stage on flights 1 and 2, however on both attempts the boosters disintegrated on re-entry, and the plans were abandoned in favor of propulsive landings. Boosters B0002 (Grasshopper) and B1002 (F9R Dev1) were modified to make short propulsive hops at test sites to demonstrate landing technologies, and were not used on orbital missions. Three boosters successfully made soft ocean touchdowns on orbital flights but were not recovered.

Full Thrust up to Block 4[edit]

Falcon 9 Full Thrust (or sometimes called Falcon 9 version 1.2) was the first version of the Falcon 9 to successfully land. Changes included a larger fuel tank, uprated engines and supercooled propellant and oxidizer to increase performance. Five different versions of Full Thrust have been produced, Block 1 to 4 (all retired) are found in this list while the active Block 5 is listed separately. Block 4 was a test version that included new hardware like titanium grid fins later used for the next and final major version of the Falcon 9, Block 5. Flights of all Falcon 9 rockets up to Block 4 were limited to 2 flights only, with a total of 14 second flights of these variants. The boosters were either retired or expended after that second launch.

Since no data is provided, Falcon 9 boosters listed as simply "FT" (Full Thrust) denote Blocks 1 to 3, while Block 4 is listed as "FT Block 4". All boosters are Falcon 9 variants, unless otherwise noted. Boosters B1023 and B1025 were Falcon 9 boosters, which were converted to Falcon Heavy side boosters for the Falcon Heavy test flight.

Block 5[edit]

There are three booster types: Falcon 9 (F9), Falcon Heavy core (FH core) boosters, and Falcon Heavy side (FH side) boosters. Falcon 9 and Falcon Heavy side boosters are reconfigurable to each other. A Falcon Heavy core booster is manufactured with structural supports for the side boosters and cannot be converted to a Falcon 9 booster or Falcon Heavy side booster.[citation needed] The interstage mounting hardware was changed after B1056. The newer interstage design features fewer pins holding the interstage on, reducing the amount of work needed to convert a Falcon 9 booster to a Falcon Heavy side booster.[84]

Block 5 is the latest iteration of the Falcon 9 and Falcon Heavy boosters. Changes include a stronger heat shield, upgraded engines, new carbon composite sections (landing legs, engine sections, raceways, RCS thrusters and interstage), retractable landing legs, titanium grid fins, and other additions that simplify refurbishment and allow for easier reusability.

Block 5 boosters were initially certified for 10 launches[85] which was increased to 15. A "deep-dive" examination has been performed on Falcon 9 B1058 and B1060 after their 15th flight,[86] and SpaceX certified Falcon 9 boosters for 20 missions. SpaceX has further increased the Falcon re-flight certification to 40 flights per booster, since 20 flights of some boosters are reached.[87][88]

B1058, first launched on 30 May 2020 (Crew Dragon Demo-2), was the only booster with NASA logos. On 11 September 2022, during a Starlink mission, it became the first to complete fourteen launches and landings to become the fleet leader. With another 5 Starlink missions, B1058 achieved 15, 16, 17, 18 & 19 launches and landings, the first to do so. On 13 April 2024 and 18 May 2024, B1062 became a veteran Guinness Book of World Records holder Falcon 9 booster as it set a new record of 20 and 21 launches and landings respectively to become the new fleet leader.[89] Amongst all B5 boosters, B1058 is the booster with most spacecrafts (869) launched to orbit and along with the record for most spacecraft mass launched to orbit by a single booster, that is, of ~262,000 kg (578,000 lb). B1061 is the oldest and earliest launched of the active Falcon 9 boosters.

As of 1 June 2024, SpaceX used a total of 38 new B5 boosters, of which 21 are no longer active (14 have been expended, 5 have been lost due to failed landings, and 2 have been lost during recovery).

  1. ^ means the booster has this logo on it. The logo is not being used in this table to signify that the booster is owned by NASA nor does it signify the booster is exclusively or partly used by NASA.
  2. ^ Entries with colored background and ♺ symbol denote flights using refurbished boosters from previous flights.
  3. ^ Mission names are presented in parentheses when applicable. indicates crewed launch under Commercial Crew Program (CCP). Adjacent logos are mission patches.
  4. ^ B1048 had a Merlin engine fail during launch, meaning the engine failed to light up for entry, and the booster crashed.
  5. ^ B1049 flew with a Test/Spare Block 4 interstage on its last flight since it donated its interstage to B1052 after its penultimate flight.[84][104][105]
  6. ^ B1050 performed a controlled ocean landing near the coast, and was then recovered from the water and scrapped for parts.
  7. ^ B1052 used the interstage from B1049 donated after that booster's penultimate flight.[84][104][127]
  8. ^ Falcon Heavy core B1055 landed safely, but later fell over on the drone ship platform during transit back to Cape Canaveral in rough seas. At the time, the engines were described as perhaps recoverable, the status of the other components of the booster was not stated.[138]
  9. ^ Despite making a successful landing, de-tanking and heading back home, the stage fell over on the drone ship platform during transit back to Cape Canaveral in rough seas, high winds and waves. This is still considered a successful landing as the stage damage occurred while in transport.[144]
  10. ^ Falcon 9 B1059 had a hole in one of its "boots" (protective thermal blankets) which lead to one of the engines catching fire and shutting down during re-entry and the booster impacted the ocean.

Statistics[edit]

Rockets from the Falcon 9 family have been launched 354 times over 14 years, resulting in 352 full successes (99.44%), one in-flight failure (SpaceX CRS-7), and one partial success (SpaceX CRS-1 delivered its cargo to the International Space Station (ISS), but a secondary payload was stranded in a lower-than-planned orbit). Additionally, one rocket and its payload AMOS-6 were destroyed before launch in preparation for an on-pad static fire test. The active version, Falcon 9 Block 5, has flown 289 missions, all full successes.

In 2022 Falcon 9 set a new record of 60 launches (all successful) by the same launch vehicle type in a calendar year. The previous record was held by Soyuz-U, which had 47 launches (45 successful) in 1979.[231] In 2023 Falcon 9 family set a new record of 96 launches (all successful) by the same launch vehicle family in a calendar year. The previous record was held by R-7 rocket family, which had 63 launches (61 successful) in 1980.[a][232]

The first rocket version Falcon 9 v1.0 was launched five times from June 2010 to March 2013, its successor Falcon 9 v1.1 15 times from September 2013 to January 2016, and the Falcon 9 Full Thrust 325 times from December 2015 to present. The latest Full Thrust variant, Block 5, was introduced in May 2018.[233] While the Block 4 boosters were only flown twice and required several months of refurbishment, Block 5 versions were certified to sustain 10 flights and have since been recertified for 15 and then 20 flights per booster.[4] SpaceX is currently planning to further increase the Falcon re-flight certification to 40 flights per booster; the limit of 20 flights has been reached.[234]

The Falcon Heavy derivative consists of a strengthened Falcon 9 first stage as its center core, with two additional Falcon 9 first stages attached and used as boosters, both of which are fitted with an aerodynamic nosecone instead of a usual Falcon 9 interstage.[235]

Falcon 9 first-stage boosters landed successfully in 318 of 329 attempts (96.7%), with 293 out of 297 (98.7%) for the Falcon 9 Block 5 version. A total of 291 re-flights of first stage boosters have all successfully launched their payloads.

  1. ^ There was also an on-pad explosion; sometimes it is counted as a launch, resulting in 64 launches.
  2. ^ Full Thrust Boosters B1023 and B1025 were converted to side boosters for the Falcon Heavy test flight of February 2018. This configuration will never fly again, as future Falcon Heavy missions have used a modified variant of Block 5 modules as side boosters.

Full Thrust booster flight counts[edit]

This chart lists how often boosters were flown. It is limited to the Full Thrust versions as previous versions were never recovered intact. The entries for Block 5 include active boosters that can make additional flights in the future. Blocks 1–3 made 27 flights with 18 boosters (1.5 flights per booster), Block 4 made 12 flights with 7 boosters (1.7 flights per booster). As of 8 June 2024, Block 5 made 289 flights with 27 boosters (10.7 flights per booster) with Falcon 9.

Notable boosters[edit]

Booster 0002 Grasshopper[edit]

Grasshopper performing a 325-meter flight

Grasshopper consisted of "a Falcon 9 first-stage tank, a single Merlin-1D engine" with a height of 32 m (105 ft).[236]

Grasshopper began flight testing in September 2012 with a brief, three-second hop, followed by a second hop in November 2012 with an 8-second flight that took the testbed approximately 5.4 m (18 ft) off the ground, and a third flight in December 2012 of 29 seconds duration, with extended hover under rocket engine power, in which it ascended to an altitude of 40 m (130 ft) before descending under rocket power to come to a successful vertical landing.[237] Grasshopper made its eighth, and final, test flight on 7 October 2013, flying to an altitude of 744 m (2,441 ft) before making its eighth successful vertical landing.[238] Grasshopper is retired.[10]

Booster 1019[edit]

Falcon 9 B1019 immediately before landing on Landing Zone 1

Falcon 9 B1019 was the first Full Thrust booster, and was first launched on 22 December 2015 for Falcon 9 flight 20 and landed on the Landing Zone 1 (LZ-1). It became the first orbital-class rocket booster to perform a successful return to launch site and vertical landing.[239][240][241]

SpaceX decided not to fly the booster again.[242] Rather, the rocket was moved a few miles north, refurbished by SpaceX at the adjacent Kennedy Space Center, to conduct a static fire test. This test aimed to assess the health of the recovered booster and the capability of this rocket design to fly repeatedly in the future.[243][239] The historic booster is on display outside SpaceX headquarters in Hawthorne, California.

Booster 1021[edit]

Falcon 9 B1021 was the first booster to be re-flown and the first to land on a droneship. It was first launched on 8 April 2016 carrying a Dragon spacecraft and Bigelow Expandable Activity Module (BEAM) on the SpaceX CRS-8 mission and landed on an autonomous spaceport drone ship (ASDS). After recovery, inspections and refurbishing, it was launched again on 30 March 2017 for the SES-10 mission and recovered successfully a second time. This event marks a milestone in SpaceX's drive to develop reusable rockets and reduce launch costs.[28][244][245][246][247] Following the second flight, SpaceX stated that they plan to retire this booster and donate it to Cape Canaveral for public display.[248][249] It was later put on public display outside Dish Network's headquarters in Littleton, Colorado in October 2023.[30]

Boosters 1023 and 1025[edit]

B1023 became the third orbital-class rocket to land on a droneship after launching Thaicom 8 into a geostationary transfer orbit on 27 May 2016. It was an unusually hard landing that crushed the energy absorbers on at least one of the landing legs, causing the booster to "walk" across the droneship and lean over,[250][251] but the rocket arrived safely at Port Canaveral.[252] B1025[253] successfully launched the CRS-9 resupply mission on its maiden flight on 18 July 2016 and landed on LZ-1, being the first after B1019 to do so.[254] The mission carried a new docking adapter specifically designed for autonomous spacecraft to the ISS in preparation for Dragon 2 resupply and Commercial Crew missions.[255]

B1023 and B1025 were assigned the role of side boosters for the Falcon Heavy test flight in 2017, after which they underwent separate static fire tests. The boosters were mated to a newly built Falcon Heavy core, B1033, for the flight.[256] The maiden flight of Falcon Heavy on 6 February 2018 launched SpaceX CEO Elon Musk's Tesla Roadster and a dummy astronaut into a Mars-crossing heliocentric orbit. The boosters successfully separated from the core and performed a synchronized landing on LZ-1 and the adjacent LZ-2.[257] B1023 is on display at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex in its Falcon Heavy side booster configuration.[39] Whilst B1025 was scrapped.

Booster 1046[edit]

B1046 was the first Block 5, the final version of the SpaceX Falcon 9. It was first launched on 11 May 2018, carrying Bangabandhu-1, Bangladesh's first geostationary communications satellite. This marked the 54th flight of the Falcon 9 and the first flight of the Falcon 9 Block 5.[258] After completing a successful ascent, B1046 landed on the drone ship Of Course I Still Love You. After inspection and refurbishment, B1046 was launched a second time on 7 August 2018, carrying the Telkom-4 (Merah Putih) satellite. The Telkom-4 mission marked the first time an orbital-class rocket booster launched two GTO missions. This was also the first re-flight of a Block 5 booster.[259] Four months after the Telkom-4 mission, B1046 arrived at Vandenberg Air Force Base to support the SSO-A mission. Following delays for additional satellite checks,[260] liftoff occurred from SLC-4E on 3 December 2018. This marked the first time that the same orbital-class booster flew three times.[261] Its fourth and last mission launched a Crew Dragon capsule up to the point of maximum dynamic pressure, where it separated from the rocket to test its abort system in flight to validate the system's safety for crews. After separation of Falcon and Dragon, B1046 was compromised by aerodynamic forces.

Booster 1048[edit]

B1048 was the third Falcon 9 Block 5 to fly and the second Block 5 booster to re-fly, and the first booster ever to be launched four, then five times. During the last launch, an engine shut down seconds before the planned shutdown, becoming only the second time a Merlin engine failed since the failure during the SpaceX CRS-1 in October 2012. The primary mission was unaffected and the Starlink payload deployed successfully,[262] further confirming the reliability of the rocket due to redundancy of the engines. With reduced thrust, B1048 was unable to sufficiently slow down its descent, and thus was unable to land.[263]

Booster 1049[edit]

B1049 was the oldest Falcon 9 booster on active duty until its last flight on Nov 22, 2022, after which this title went to B1052. It was the first to successfully launch and land six, then seven times, and the second to launch and land eight, nine, and then ten times respectively. It launched two commercial payloads, Telstar 18V and the eighth Iridium NEXT batch, and eight internal Starlink batches.[264] B1049 has been seen with its landing legs and grid fins removed indicating that it will be expended on its next flight. The final flight of B1049 was originally thought to be O3b mPower 4-6 but a regrouping of the launches meant that an expendable booster was no longer required. It was then originally planned that B1049's last flight would be the launch of Nilesat-301 however, plans changed and the mission was flown with a recoverable booster (B1062.7). B1049 flew the Eutelsat-10B communications satellite on November 22, 2022. This mission was its last flight.

Booster 1050[edit]

B1050 launched for the first time on 5 December 2018.[265][266] A grid fin malfunction occurred shortly after the entry burn, resulting in the booster performing a controlled landing in the ocean instead of the planned ground pad landing.[267]

No future flights for B1050 were planned, and it was scrapped due to its damage.[268]

Booster 1051[edit]

B1051 was the sixth Falcon 9 Block 5 booster built. On its maiden flight on 2 March 2019, it carried a Crew Dragon into orbit on the Demo-1 mission. It then flew its second mission out of Vandenberg AFB launching the Radarsat constellation. It then flew 4 Starlink missions and launched SXM-7, totaling 5 flights in 2020 alone, and becoming the first Falcon 9 to launch a commercial payload on its seventh flight. On 18 December 2021, it flew for a record 11th time.[269] It was the first booster to be used eight, nine, ten, eleven, and twelve times respectively. It flew for the final time on 12 November 2022 for the Intelsat G-31/G-32 mission, and was expended.

Booster 1056[edit]

B1056 first launched on 4 May 2019, carrying a Cargo Dragon to the ISS. Because of the failure of the static test fire of Crew Dragon C204's Super-Draco abort engines on LZ-1, it landed on a drone ship instead.[270] It flew three more times. On 17 February 2020, B1056 was planned to perform the 50th orbital-class rocket landing, just 27 days after its previous launch.[271] The booster soft-landed in the Atlantic Ocean and was severely damaged after launching Starlink satellites into orbit, becoming the first flight-proven Block 5 booster to fail landing.[272]

Booster 1058[edit]

Falcon 9 B1058 was first launched on 30 May 2020, from Kennedy Space Center Launch Complex 39A (Apollo 11 launch site). It carried NASA astronauts Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken to the International Space Station. It was the first crewed orbital spaceflight launched from the United States since the final Space Shuttle mission, and the first crewed flight test of Dragon 2. It was the first crewed orbital spaceflight by a private company. The booster was the first and only Falcon 9 booster to feature NASA's worm logo and meatball insignia, which was reintroduced after last being used in 1992.[273]

On 11 September 2022, it flew for the 14th time and became the first booster to be recovered 14 times.[274] On 17 December 2022, it was also the first booster to fly and land for the 15th time.[275] On 10 July 2023, it broke the reusability record of flying and landing an orbital-class rocket booster for the 16th time and later went on to be the first to complete 17, 18, and 19 launches in the same year.[276]

Despite the successful landing in its nineteenth flight, the booster tipped over during transit due to rough seas and high winds. SpaceX has already equipped newer Falcon boosters with upgraded landing legs that have the capability to self-level and mitigate this type of issue.[277]

Booster 1060[edit]

B1060 first flew on 30 June 2020, a month after Demo-2. Further missions it supported include launches of Starlink v1, v1.5 and v2 Mini, two Transporter ridesharing missions, and three large commercial satellites. After becoming the senior active rocket for SpaceX on 25 December 2023, it was assigned to what would become the first successful commercial Lunar landing: the booster launched IM-1 on 15 February 2024. This was its eighteenth mission.[278]

Booster 1061[edit]

Falcon 9 B1061 first launched Crew-1 to the ISS in November 2020, the first operational flight of Crew Dragon, and landed on a drone ship.[279] It became the first booster to fly crew twice as well as the first reused booster to fly crew as a part of the Crew-2 mission.[280] This first stage went on to complete additional missions.[172] B1061 is the only booster to land on all of SpaceX's different landing zones and drone ships (not including LZ-2).

Booster 1062[edit]

Falcon 9 B1062 launched Inspiration4 in 2021, operated by SpaceX on behalf of Shift4 Payments CEO Jared Isaacman.[281] The mission launched the Crew Dragon Resilience on 16 September 2021 at 00:02:56 UTC[a] from the Florida Kennedy Space Center's Launch Complex 39A atop a Falcon 9 launch vehicle, placed the Dragon capsule into low Earth orbit,[258] and ended successfully on 18 September 2021 at 23:06:49 UTC,[282] when the Resilience splashed down in the Atlantic Ocean. B1062 holds the record for the fastest booster turnaround time at 21 days and 4 hours between 8 April 2022 (Axiom-1) and 29 April 2022 (Starlink Group 4–16) beating the previous record of 27 days and 6 hours held by B1060. This was the first time a booster had flown twice in the same calendar month. According to the SpaceX webcast of the Starlink Group 4-16 mission, the booster spent just nine days in refurbishment. This booster was the first booster to achieve 20 launches and landings. This booster currently holds the launch and landing record at 21 launches and landings.

Booster 1069[edit]

Falcon 9 B1069 launched SpaceX CRS-24 to ISS in December 2021 for NASA. SpaceX achieved the feat of 100 successful orbital rocket booster landings in this mission, coinciding with the sixth anniversary of its first booster landing. The rough seas led to the Octagrabber robot not being able to secure the booster to the deck, leading to both the booster, droneship and the Octagrabber robot being heavily damaged in transit.[283] It took months for SpaceX to refurbish B1069, returning into service only on Group 4-23 mission in August 2022.

On its next flight for Eutelsat Hotbird 13F, B1069 included a hosted promotional payload by FIFA, that was a box powered by Starlink containing two Adidas Al Rihla (the Journey) balls, that were to be used in 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.[284] These match balls were launched and brought back by landing on the drone-ship surviving the stresses of re-entry. Later, they were taken out and shipped back to Qatar for the world cup. This was the first payload on a Falcon 9 booster itself and demonstrated the reusability.[285] The balls' flight by SpaceX was, in part, a promotion for the company's Starlink satellite internet service. An associated website invited World Cup attendees to visit the Starlink office in Doha.[286]
