    The 102nd launch this year and the 3rd in December is by ESA.

    https://www.nasaspaceflight.com/2018...eo-kompsat-2a/

    Ariane 5 returned to action on Tuesday with another dual passenger launch this time with GSAT-11 and GEO-KOMPSAT-2A. Liftoff from the European Spaceport in Kourou, French Guiana was on schedule at the start of a 76 minute launch window that opened at 5:37 pm local time (20:37 UTC). Flight VA246 was performed from Ariane Launch Complex No. 3 (ELA 3).

    Flight VA246 marks Arianespace’s 10th mission performed in 2018, and the company’s sixth this year using a heavy-lift Ariane 5 – which is one of three launch vehicles operated by Arianespace at the Spaceport, along with the medium-lift Soyuz and light-lift Vega.

    We will not see an orbital launch or successful orbital launch record this year, however I'm curious about total amount of satellites brought into orbit. We've had the 64 sat SpaceX launch this year, then again India did 80 something in 1 launch a few years ago.

    It was 103 in one launch, for India.

    See, I remembered well. It were eighty-twentythree satellites.

    So we won't be breaking the #satellites launched per year record.

    The 103rd launch this year and the 4th in December is by USA. It is SpaceX's 20th launch this year.

    https://www.nasaspaceflight.com/2018...16-dragon-iss/

    SpaceX conducted its second launch in barely 48 hours on Wednesday, with their Falcon 9 rocket boosting a Dragon spacecraft on the first leg of its cargo run to the International Space Station. Liftoff of the CRS-16 mission took place from Cape Canaveral’s Space Launch Complex 40 at 13:16 Eastern Time (18:16 UTC). The booster lost control during its return to LZ-1, but managed to soft land in the water just off the coast and appears to be intact.

    The launch, SpaceX’s twentieth of the year and the nineteenth to use a Falcon 9 vehicle, came just 48 hours and four minutes after another Falcon 9 lifted off from California on Monday to deploy its SSO-A payload. Notably, the CRS-16 Dragon was set to launch just 24 hours after the SSO-A mission, before an unusual issue called for a 24 hour delay.

    Found the answers you were looking for

    https://www.pixalytics.com/sats-orbi...he-earth-2018/

    So far in 2018, UNOOSA has recorded 204 objects launched into space. This is already more launches than was achieved in any entire year before 2013, and very close to the number of launches in 2013, 2014, 2105 and 2016. However, it did not beat last year as 2017 was a bit of a record breaker! There were 453 objects launched last year alone, which equates to over 5% of the objects ever launched into space!

    The 106th launch this year and the 7th in December is by New Zealand.

    https://www.nasaspaceflight.com/2018...ron-elana-xix/

    Rocket Lab has launched its second mission in just over a month on Sunday. The Electron rocket launched at 06:33 UTC with a host of CubeSats for NASA’s Educational Launch of Nanosatellites (ELaNa) program.


    The 19th such mission to deploy educational CubeSats into orbit was also be the first mission procured under NASA’s Venture Class Launch Services (VCLS) program. Rocket Lab, Virgin Orbit, and Firefly Aerospace were selected to provide dedicated smallsat launch vehicles to support the increasing role of CubeSats in NASA’s research.

    The launch was the first flight under this program, carrying 13 satellites that will advance various research goals.

    https://www.nasaspaceflight.com/2018...-cso-1-launch/

    Arianespace conducted its final launch of 2018 on Wednesday, following a scrub – due to strong winds at the launch site – on Tuesday. The launch used a Soyuz rocket to deploy a high-resolution imaging satellite for the French military. Soyuz lifted off from the Centre Spatial Guyanais – near Kourou, French Guiana.

    https://www.nasaspaceflight.com/2018...govest-no-13l/

    Russia has successfully launched a military communications satellite Friday morning, with a Proton-M/Briz-M rocket lifting off from the Baikonur Cosmodrome to deploy Blagovest No.13L into geostationary orbit. Launch occurred on time at 05:20 local time (00:20 UTC), although it will be nine hours before Proton’s payload separates into its final orbit.

    The 110th launch this year and the 11th in December is by China.

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

    China conducted another orbital launch using a Long March-11 solid fuel rocket on Friday. The launch took place from a mobile launch platform from the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center at 23:51 UTC.


    Onboard the LM-11 rocket was the first Hongyun satellite.

    Developed by the China Aerospace Science and Industry Corporation (CASIC), this is the fist satellite of a vast space-based communications network capable of covering every corner on the Earth, including the Arctic and Antarctica. The satellite mission is to verify low-orbit broadband communication technologies to be used on the Hongyun satellite constellation.

    The 113th launch this year and the 14th in December is by Russia.

    https://www.nasaspaceflight.com/2018...onal-payloads/

    Russia’s last satellite launch of 2018 saw a Soyuz rocket lift off from the Vostochny Cosmodrome Thursday, delivering a pair of Kanopus-V remote sensing satellites and twenty-six secondary payloads to orbit with the aid of a Fregat upper stage. Soyuz launched at 11:07 local time (02:07 UTC) with separation of its primary payload confirmed ahead of the deployment of the cubesats.

    The 114th launch this year and the 15th in December is by China.
