If I have got the numbers right, the O3B mission marked another reuse milestone:There are 17 active boosters that have flown at least once, with a total of 170 fligths. That means: SpaceX achieved an average of 10 flights per booster.Booster - flights1058 181060 171061 161062 161063 141064 41065 41067 141069 101071 121073 111075 71076 91077 81078 51080 41081 1

Falcon 9ís first stage has landed on Landing Zone 4, completing our 250th landing of a Falcon first stage booster
And in just shy of the last three years, 175 consecutive successful landings in a row vs 158 total launches in 17 years
That part is wild. Also, just 3 of the 150+ Falcon launches in the last two years did not include one or two successful landings, and maybe 5% didn't exclusively use flight-proven boosters. The default for every other launch on Earth is a rounding error on SpaceX's manifest.
Made me think... I'm pretty sure that EVERY SINGLE Falcon launched in the last two years has had either a booster or fairing recovered and reused. That's a milestone all on its own tbh
