The Launch Library 2 API is the official successor of the popular Launch Library API. It keeps its core features whilst also including everything the broader Space Launch Now API had to offer. The result is a large database delivering a more complete experience for each rocket launch and space event. The philosophy behind the API also remains unchanged : the entire database is accessible to everyone, for free.
We track all orbital launches and a number of popular suborbital launches. Generally we will track all suborbital launches which aim to reach “space” or the Karman line and are live streamed, although, we will also occasionally track others by popular demand. The endpoint has a variety of filters and parameters, such as launch service provider, launcher config or spacecraft.
These are agencies involved in spaceflight that are somehow connected to data in other parts of the API. These could be launch service providers, space agencies or rocket manufacturers. The endpoint has a variety of filters and parameters, such as type or country code.
This contains rocket configurations, such as ‘Falcon 9 Block 5’. We only have launch vehicles which are used by our launch objects, we don’t have launch vehicles which are used in launches we don’t track. The endpoint has a variety of filters and parameters, such as name, family or agency.
This contains a list of all pads where launch vehicles have flown from. This endpoint is similar to that of the location endpoint, however, is more specific and contains information on the individual pads at each location. An example of this pad would be 'Space Launch Complex 40', which is located in Cape Canaveral. The endpoint has a variety of filters and parameters, such as location id and name.
