Prerequisites#

  • Adequate prior knowledge of GraphQL end-points and Queries.

Directions#

  1. Select the POST method from the Method drop-down list.
  2. Set this SpaceX GraphQL API end-point https://api.spacex.land/graphql in the URLbar input.
  3. Select the GraphQL queries item the Quick Body Type Selection section.
  4. Input a below query payload inside the Request Panel.
query launchesDetails{  __typename  launches {    details    id    is_tentative    launch_date_local    launch_date_unix    launch_date_utc    launch_site {      site_id      site_name    }    launch_success    launch_year  }}
  1. Hit the Send button in the URL bar to send your GraphQL request.
