    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.

    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.

    The 92nd launch this year and the 6th in November is by USA.

    This launch equals the total number of launches per year this century (achieved in 2014). It was also SpaceX's 18 launch this year.

    https://www.nasaspaceflight.com/2018...-eshail-2-39a/

    SpaceX launched Qatar’s Es’hail-2 spacecraft Thursday, using a Falcon 9 rocket to place the communications satellite into orbit. Falcon lifted off from Florida’s Kennedy Space Center at the start of a 101-minute window that opened at 15:46 Eastern Time (20:46 UTC). Thursday’s mission used a flight-proven Falcon 9 booster, making its second mission.

    The highest ever was 139 orbital launches in 1967, of which 120 (86%) successful.

    The 93rd launch this year and the 7th in November is by Russia.

    So we are in uncharted waters for the number of rocket launches this century, but as Nicolas pointed out, far far away from the record set in 1967 of 139 launches.

    https://www.nasaspaceflight.com/2018...ms-10-vehicle/

    The Russian Progress MS-10 resupply vehicle for the International Space Station has launched from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan on a mission to return the Soyuz-FG rocket variant to flight and resume Russian launches to the Station. The Soyuz-FG is the same rocket variant that suffered an in-flight failure during the crewed Soyuz MS-10 launch last month.

    Liftoff occurred on Friday, 16 November at 13:14:08 EST (1814:08 UTC) – which was 00:14:08 local time on Saturday, 17 November at Baikonur.

    The 94th launch this year and the 8th in November is by USA.

    Hope you had a lovely view of the launch sts60.

    Northrop Grumman Innovation System’s (NGIS’s) Antares rocket has launched the NG-10 Cygnus, named the S.S. John Young, on its way to the International Space Station on Saturday morning from the Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport in Virginia. NGIS officials told NASASpaceflight that the mission’s Antares rocket is not affected by the company’s continued issues with their Pegasus rocket – despite a range of similar systems employed throughout the NGIS rocket family.

    Liftoff of Antares occurred early Saturday morning, 17 November, at 04:01:22 EST (0901:22 UTC).

    While Antares is not affected by Pegasus, Cygnus’ payload was, however, affected by last month’s crew Soyuz in-flight abort – with 11 CubeSats having to be removed from the Cygnus due to the realigned ISS vehicle launch schedule.

    China launched another orbital mission from its Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center using a Long March-2D (Chang Zheng-2D) launch vehicle. The launch took place at 23:40 UTC from Launch Pad 94 of the LC34 Launch Complex. The main payload for this launch was the mysterious Shiyan Weixing-6 satellite. Chinese press refers this satellite to be used for space environment detection and related technical tests.

    Fun fact added to my previous statistic:

    The highest ever was 139 orbital launches in 1967, of which 120 (86%) successful.
    The highest number of successful launches per year was not in the sixties space race, but in 1983 with 127 successful launches and only 2 failures. This low failure rate was a statistical anomaly in its age.

    Thanks for that statistic. Do not think we will come close this year but next year will be a different story. The big contributor will be the small rockets.

    The 101st launch this year and the 2nd in December is by USA. It is SpaceX's 19 launch this year.

    https://spaceflightnow.com/2018/12/0...status-center/

    Spaceflight, the company which organized today's rideshare launch, has announced all 64 microsatellites and CubeSats have successfully separated in orbit. Many of the satellite owners have already acquired signals or beacons from their spacecraft, confirming their status following today's ride into orbit on top of a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket.

    “This was an incredibly complex mission, and I’m extremely proud of what our talented team at Spaceflight has achieved,” said Curt Blake, president of Spaceflight. “SSO-A is a major milestone for Spaceflight and the industry. We’ve always been committed to making space more accessible through rideshare. This mission enabled 34 organizations from 17 different countries to place spacecraft on orbit. It’s also special because it was completely dedicated to smallsats.”
