    Number of launches in 2019

    Last year at this time, I set a target of 120 to 150 launches. We ended with 114. For this year, I expect the total number of launches to be in the range 130 to 160. Again it is a the small rocket taking off that will produce the higher number.

    This year it is China that has started the ball rolling.

    Following a record-breaking 2018 that saw China launch 39 orbital mission, the Chinese have kicked off the new year by orbiting a new communications satellite with possible military applications. Zhongxing-2D (or Chinasat-2D) was launched at 17:05 UTC on Thursday – from the Xichang Satellite Launch Center using a Long March-3B/G3 from the LC2 Launch Complex.

    The 2nd launch this year as well as the 2nd launch this year is by USA. It is SpaceX 1st launch this year.

    https://www.nasaspaceflight.com/2019...lation-launch/

    The eighth and final Iridium NEXT launch – that was conducted on Friday – will bring to fruition a near 12-year campaign to replace and upgrade the Iridium communications network in Earth orbit.

    Iridium NEXT-8 launched on a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket from SLC-4E at Vandenberg Air Force Base, California. Liftoff took place during a single-second, instantaneous window of 07:31:33 PST (10:31:33 EST; 1531:33 UTC) on Friday, 11 January 2019.

    The 3rd launch this year as well as the 3rd launch in January is by Iran. The launch failed.

    https://www.nytimes.com/2019/01/15/w...unch-fail.html

    Iranian officials said on Tuesday that a satellite launch that had been condemned by the Trump administration failed when the carrier rocket could not reach orbit.

    “I would have liked to make you happy with some good news, but sometimes life does not go as expected,” Iran’s minister of telecommunications, Mohammad Javad Azari Jahromi, said in a Twitter post.

    He said the rocket, a Safir, long used for satellite launches, had failed in the final stage, falling short of placing its payload into the correct orbit. He did not offer any explanation.

    The 4th launch this year as well as the 4th launch in January is by Japan. Wow, 4 launches this year, all from diffrent countries.

    https://www.nasaspaceflight.com/2019...apis-1-launch/

    Japan conducted its first launch of 2019 Friday, using the small Epsilon rocket to launch seven satellites, including the RAPIS-1 technology demonstration mission, into orbit. Epsilon lifted off from the Uchinoura Space Centre at the start of a nine-minute, 17-second window that opened at 09:50:20 local time (00:50 UTC).

    The 5th launch this year as well as the 5th launch in January is by USA.

    https://www.nasaspaceflight.com/2019...aunch-nrol-71/

    United Launch Alliance’s Delta IV Heavy rocket launched Saturday with the mysterious NROL-71 mission for the National Reconnaissance Office from SLC-6 at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California. A series of technical and weather-related scrubs hampered the launch attempts, prior to a lengthy stand down to fix a hydrogen leak that scrubbed the final attempt of 2017 with just seconds remaining in the count. With the issue fixed, the launch was realigned for January 19, with the window opening at 11:05 AM local time (19:05 UTC). Launch occurred slightly into the window at 11:10 AM local time.

    The 6th launch this year as well as the 6th launch in January is by China.

    https://gbtimes.com/long-march-11-ro...-space-program

    China's second and the world's sixth orbital launch took place Monday, seeing four small satellites successfully sent into orbit from the Jiuquan launch centre in the Gobi Desert.

    Liftoff of the light-lift Long March 11 solid-fuelled rocket occurred at 05:42 UTC (13:42 local) at Jiuquan, with Chang Guang Satellite Technology (CGST), the Jilin Province-based maker of the two Jilin-1 hyperspectral satellites aboard, announcing success of the mission to Sun-synchronous orbit (SSO) within the hour.

    I was just thinking, with upcoming space faring nations, it might be more interesting to look at reliability over time per country rather than in total to see trends. And even then, the number of failures compared to the total number per year might be too small to really make statistically significant conclusions. That said, I do have the idea that reliability of the main space powers is steadily improving.

    You are correct on the number of failures. There were only two failures last year. One by China and another by Russia.

    There's a ringer: SpaceX has made an FCC filing to begin deploying StarLink in 2019. See the SpaceX thread.

    The 9th launch this year as well as the 2nd launch in February is by Iran. It ended in failure.

    https://spaceflightnow.com/2019/02/1...a-month-fails/

    Iran’s second try in less than a month to send a satellite into orbit apparently failed shortly after liftoff from a remote desert launch pad under daily surveillance from a fleet of commercial imaging spacecraft, according to U.S. government officials and independent analysts.

    The 10th launch this year as well as the 3rd launch in February is by Russia.

    https://www.nasaspaceflight.com/2019...ch-egyptsat-a/

    Russia’s first satellite launch of 2019 took place Thursday, with a Soyuz-2-1b/Fregat rocket lifting off from the Baikonur Cosmodrome at 23:47 local time (16:47 UTC) carrying the EgyptSat-A spacecraft. The spacecraft has separated, but it was initially unknown if the satellite was in the correct orbit after Russian media reported issues during either the third stage or Fregat period of flight. Roscosmos later claimed the launch was a success, potentially pointing to a heroric effort from the Fregat to save the mission.

    The 11th launch this year as well as the 4th launch in February is by USA. It is SpaceX 2nd launch this year.

    https://www.nasaspaceflight.com/2019...-moon-mission/

    A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket launched from Cape Canaveral Thursday, carrying a payload of three very different spacecraft: an Indonesian telecommunications satellite, an experimental spacecraft for the US military and the first commercial mission to attempt a landing on the Moon. Falcon lifted off from Space Launch Complex 40 (SLC-40) at the opening of a 32-minute window at 20:45 Eastern Time (01:45 UTC on Friday).

    It begins...expect SpaceX's launch count to balloon, quickly.

    SpaceX has filed for FCC licenses in support of a Falcon 9 B5 launch from SLC-40, with recovery on ASDS Of Course I Still Love You about 600km to the NE.

    NASASpaceFlight.com reports this is the first StarLink deployment launch.

    800 satellites to begin service, and a total of 4,425 satellites to fill out the LEO phase. Add another 7,518 satellites for the VLEO phase.

    The 15th launch this year as well as the 8th launch in March is by Russia.

    https://www.nasaspaceflight.com/2019...ms-12-station/

    For the first time in 2019, humans launched to space aboard Roscosmos’ veteran Soyuz-FG rocket and the Soyuz MS crew vehicle. The mission, Soyuz MS-12, is ferrying three crewmembers, one Russian and two Americans, to the International Space Station.

    Aleksey Ovchinin and Nick Hague are two of the crew, and both strapped back into a Soyuz just six months after they were involved in the Soyuz MS-10 In-Flight Abort on 11 October 2018. They are joined on Soyuz MS-12 by NASA astronaut Christina Koch.

    Liftoff occurred at 15:14:09 EDT (1914:09 UTC) on 14 March 2019 from the Baikonur Cosmodrome, Kazakhstan. Soyuz MS-12 will rendezvous and dock with the Station six hours later.

    The 17th launch this year as well as the 10th launch in March is by ESA.

    https://www.nasaspaceflight.com/2019...ion-satellite/

    Italy’s PRISMA Earth observation satellite launched aboard Arianespace’s Vega rocket Thursday. Vega lifted off from its launch pad at the Centre Spatial Guyanais in Kourou, French Guiana, at 22:50:35 local time (01:50 UTC on Friday).
    PRISMA, or Precursore Iperspettrale della Missione Applicativa, is a small hyperspectral imaging satellite that has been constructed by OHB Italia and will be operated by the Italian Space Agency, Agenzia Spaziale Italiana (ASI). The satellite, whose name translates into English as “hyperspectral precursor of the application mission”, is intended to demonstrate the small satellite platform and its imaging payload, while also performing imaging that is useful in its own right.

    The 19th launch this year as well as the 12th launch in March is by New Zealand.

    https://www.nasaspaceflight.com/2019...darpa-mission/

    Rocket Lab is aiming for a rapid launch cadence in 2019, and begun that campaign with the first Electron launch of the year. The window to launch the R3D2 mission for DARPA was to open on Sunday at 22:30 UTC for four hours. However, a scrub was called for at least 48 hours due to a “video transmitter 13dB down with low performance” – while forecasted high winds moved the launch two days to the right, to Thursday. That attempt proved successful with an ontime launch.

    There should be a few more launches from the US this month as April has the best weather for launches in Florida, historically.
