On Sunday, June 19, SpaceX reached an incredible milestone of becoming the first ever commercial launch company in history to complete three successful rocket launches within a period of 36 hours. The Elon Musk led company launched a two-stage Falcon rocket on Sunday from the Cape Canaveral Space Force Station, Florida to create the record. The rocket was carrying a communication satellite for Globalstar, a USA-based satellite company. With this, SpaceX has become the fastest space aeronautics company to reach this feat.

According to a report by Space.com, the first launch took place on Friday, June 17, when SpaceX launched 53 Starlink satellites from the Kennedy Space Center, Florida which is controlled and operated by NASA. After that, on Saturday, June 18, the company launched another rocket carrying a radar satellite for the German military from the Vandenberg Space Force Base in California. Finally, in the early hours of Sunday, the Elon Musk led company completed its third launch to create the new record.

The official Twitter account of Space made a post commemorating the achievement. Check it below.

SpaceX makes history, completes three launches in 36 hours

This achievement has come just seven years after the first successful landing of the Falcon 9 rocket, showcasing the fast progress of the company in terms of building reliable launch vehicles. The company has claimed to recover all the boosters used in the launch and they can be reused in future missions.

Elon Musk also tweeted congratulating the company on reaching the milestone. He said, “Congrats to SpaceX Falcon team for executing 3 flawless launches in 2 days”.

Coincidentally, the achievement comes less than a week after the company controversially terminated a number of people who were involved in writing critical letters on Musk's management and public behavior.

“As our CEO and most prominent spokesperson, Elon is seen as the face of SpaceX — every Tweet that Elon sends is a de facto public statement by the company," the letter said. "It is critical to make clear to our teams and to our potential talent pool that his messaging does not reflect our work, our mission, or our values,” the letter read.
