    The 83rd launch this year and the 8th in October is by Russia.

    https://www.nasaspaceflight.com/2018...os-s1-mission/

    Russia’s Soyuz rocket has returned to flight with the successful launch of a Lotos reconnaissance satellite Thursday, two weeks after its failed launch of the Soyuz MS-10 mission. Soyuz lifted off from the Plesetsk Cosmodrome at 03:15 Moscow Time (00:15 UTC) on Thursday, deploying its payload into orbit about ten minutes later.

    The 84th launch this year and the 9th in October is by China.

    It is not clear from the report if it failed to make orbit or failed to put it in the correct orbit. I will put it down as a partial failure till we have more information.

    Note - I have updated the post to indicate it was a launch failure as NASAspaceflight forum has confirmation form CEO of Landspace

    https://www.nasaspaceflight.com/2018...uque-1-rocket/

    Chinese private company LandSpace launched the solid-fuelled Zhuque-1 orbital launch vehicle on its maiden flight with the small Weilai-1 satellite on October 27, 2018. Launch took place at 08:00 UTC from a mobile platform located on the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center. However, the launch failed to deploy the spacecraft in the correct orbit.

    The 88th launch this year and the 2nd in November is by Russia.

    https://www.nasaspaceflight.com/2018...***-satellite/

    A Russian Soyuz-2-1b rocket launched from the Plesetsk Cosmodrome Saturday night, deploying a replacement satellite for the GLONASS navigation system with the aid of a Fregat-M upper stage. Liftoff is due to take place at 23:17 Moscow Time (20:17 UTC), beginning a three-and-a-half hour journey to the spacecraft’s destination orbit.

    Russia’s GLONASS navigation system is served by a constellation of satellites named Uragan, meaning Hurricane. The current-generation Uragan-M spacecraft are designed for seven years of service, with new satellites being launched as needed to replace failing spacecraft on orbit. Saturday’s launch deployed Uragan-M No.757 – the forty-eighth Uragan-M and the 137th GLONASS satellite overall.

    It was a head injury so banned from any screens. Now limited viewing for the next 3 to 6 months. Thanks for the concern.

    There is something fascinating about science. One gets such wholesale returns of conjecture out of such a trifling investment of fact.

    The 90th launch this year and the 4th in November is by New Zealand. This launch equals the total number of launches last year.

    https://www.nasaspaceflight.com/2018...-five-payload/

    Rocket Lab has performed the first operational flight of its Electron rocket, named It’s Business Time. The mission launched six satellites, two for Spire Global, two new additional passengers for Fleet Space Technologies via the lofting of two ‘Proxima’ satellites, one for GeoOptics Inc., and one for Irvine CubeSat STEM Program. It also launched one technology demonstrator for High Performance Space Structure Systems GmbH. The rocket was to liftoff in June before a stand down requiring a realignment into November. The launch window opened at 03:00 UTC on Sunday morning, before launching at 03:50 UTC.

    The 91st launch this year and the 5th in November is by India. This launch equals the total number of launches by India last year.

    https://www.nasaspaceflight.com/2018...sat-29-launch/

    India launched the third flight of its Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle Mk.III Wednesday, carrying the GSAT-29 satellite into orbit. Liftoff from the Second Launch Pad of the Satish Dhawan Space Centre occurred at 17:08 local time (11:38 UTC).

    The Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle Mk.III, or GSLV Mk.III, is India’s newest and most powerful rocket. After making a suborbital demonstration launch in late 2014, the rocket made its first orbital mission last June when it deployed the GSAT-19 spacecraft.

    Wednesday’s launch was designated D2, indicating that it was the rocket’s second developmental launch, however like last year’s flight its payload – GSAT-29 – is a fully operational satellite.
