Cape Canaveral in Florida expects to become the world's busiest spaceport this year with up to 24 rocket launches, said Col. Thomas Falzarano, commander of the Air Force's 45th Space Wing.

In 2014, the Russians were tops with 21 launches from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan but two of these launches failed. In the same year, Cape Canaveral had 18 launches and all were successful.
