    The 435th launch this year and the 35th in May is by China.

    https://www.nasaspaceflight.com/2018...lunar-mission/

    A Chinese Long March 4C has launched the Queqiao spacecraft – a relay satellite for the upcoming Chang’e-4 lunar mission. Launch occurred from the LC-3 pad at the Xichang Satellite Launch Centre (XSLC) at 21:25 UTC.

    This latest launch is part of China’s growing ambitions for lunar exploration, which has already achieved numerous successes. Chang’e-1 was launched in 2007 and and Chang’e-2 in 2010.

    The previous mission involved the Chang’e-3 probe and Yutu lunar rover. Chang’e is the name of the Chinese moon goddess.

    The mission, from the trip to the Moon, the landing on the lunar surface and the Rover’s – nicknamed Jade Rabbit – short road trip, all captivated the Chinese public and fostered their support for China’s future exploration goals.

    The 49th launch this year and the 2nd in June is by USA. It is SpaceX's 11th launch this year.

    https://www.nasaspaceflight.com/2018...launch-ses-12/

    SpaceX launched their sixth mission for telecommunications giants SES. The launch, using a flight-proven Falcon 9 rocket to deploy the SES-12 satellite into a geostationary transfer orbit, occurred at 00:45 Eastern on Monday, departing from SLC-40 at Florida’s Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.

    The launch of SES-12, SpaceX’s eleventh mission of the year, continues a partnership with Luxembourg-based SES, who was the first customer to launch a communications satellite on Falcon 9 back in 2013. SES was also the customer for SpaceX’s first mission with a previously-flown – or flight-proven – first stage last March.

    I didn't realize until this morning that I could probably have watched it live last night. I miss the booster landings, but I guess they'll resume before too long.

    The 54th launch this year and the 7th in June is by China. This equals the number of rockets launched by China last year.

    https://gbtimes.com/chinas-18th-spac...-space-program

    China launched a pair of technology test satellites from the Xichang launch centre early on Wednesday as the country continues with an accelerated rate of space launches through 2018.

    A Long March 2C rocket lifted off from the Xichang Satellite Launch Centre at 03:30 UTC (11:30 local) with a modified payload fairing containing the satellites named as 'new technology test' A and B.

    The China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation (CASC), the main contractor for the Chinese space programme, confirmed success of the launch within 30 minutes of liftoff.

    was there a launch on Thursday 28th June.

    https://qz.com/1317603/spacex-will-l...space-station/

    One of Elon Musk’s most important metrics is how quickly SpaceX’s reusable Falcon 9 rockets can be ready to fly again. Early tomorrow morning (June 29), they’ll set a new record: A rocket that just over two months ago carried a satellite observatory into orbit will carry a Dragon spacecraft (also re-used) to the International Space Station.

    Yes a falcon launched early this morning EDT (Friday). A friend captured video of the flight on his phone. Quite nice.

    A private Japanese company lost a rocket on launch. Will not include it in the launch count as it has not
    demonstrated it can launch a rocket to space (100km) mark.

    https://www3.nhk.or.jp/nhkworld/en/news/20180630_08/

    A small rocket developed by a Japanese startup company has failed to enter space. It was launched on Saturday but fell to the ground, bursting into flames.

    Interstellar Technologies, based in the northernmost prefecture of Hokkaido, developed and produced the 10-meter-long rocket.

    It was launched around 5:30 AM from a site in the town of Taiki in the prefecture, but fell soon after liftoff.

    The long sought attempt at launching a Russian Progress resupply vehicle to the International Space Station and having it rendezvous with the orbital complex after just two and a half orbits and just under 4 hours in space is being attempted. Roscosmos launched the Progress MS-09 craft at 17:51:33 EDT (2151:33 UTC) from Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan, with docking to the Space Station scheduled to follow at 21:39 EDT (0139 UTC on 10 July) – just 3 hours 48 minutes after launch.

    The 59th launch this year and the 4th in July is by USA. It is SpaceX's 13th launch this year.

    https://www.nasaspaceflight.com/2018...ar-19v-launch/

    SpaceX conducted their thirteenth launch of the year Sunday, with a Falcon 9 rocket deploying the Telstar 19V communications satellite for Canada’s Telesat. The first of a pair of Falcon 9 launches slated to occur just three days apart, Sunday’s mission began with liftoff from the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station at the opening of a four-hour window at 01:50 Eastern Time (05:50 UTC). SpaceX also recovered the first stage of the Falcon 9 via their Autonomous Spaceport Drone Ship (ASDS), Of Course I Still Love You.

    The 62nd launch this year and the 7th in July is by China. It is their 21st launch this year - just one short of their record number of launches, achieved in 2016.

    https://www.nasaspaceflight.com/2018...long-march-3b/

    China launched two new navigation satellites on Sunday, marking its 21st orbital launch this year. The launch of Beidou-3M5 and Beidou-3M6 took place from the LC3 Launch Complex of the Xichang Satellite Launch Center, Sichuan province, using a Long March-3B/Y1 (Chang Zheng-3B/Y1) launch vehicle. Launch time was 01:40UTC and it took over four hours to complete the mission.

    The 63rd launch this year and the 8th in July is by China again. It is their 22nd launch this year - equaling the record number of launches by China in a year, achieved in 2016.

    More information on what was launched.

    https://www.nasaspaceflight.com/2018...fts-gaofen-11/

    China has launched a new remote sensing satellite on Tuesday, with Gaofen-11 departing from LC9 at the Taiyuan Satellite Launch Center on a Long March-4B – Chang Zheng-4B – rocket. The Launch took place at 03:00 UTC.

    Previously unannounced, the new satellite, Gaofen-11, is described as an optical remote sensing satellite in the official press releases announcing the launch. No other characteristics of the new satellite were revealed at this time, as can be the case with some Chinese launches.

    The Gaofen civilian high-resolution remote sensing satellites (gao fen = high-resolution) are part of a program that is one of the 16 main programs announced by the State Council in a 15 year plan of Chinese national scientific and technology programs between 2006 and 2020.
