SpaceX Manifest Now Completely Impossible to Follow

SpaceX_Manifest_AlphabeticalSpaceX’s manifest has never been very understandable. Missions were listed by year, with an asterisk clarifying that this was the year when hardware arrived at the launch site.

Now the company has restructured the manifest alphabetically, not by year.

Fortunately, Spaceflightnow.com has a list of planned SpaceX missions for 2015 as part of its launch schedule. What they have at the moment are 14 missions, would be a major increase on the six flights the company conducted in 2014. The schedule shows the first test of Falcon Heavy occurring in the third quarter.

The table below excerpts the SpaceX mission from Spaceflightnow.com’s launch schedule.
