    The 28th launch this year as well as the 1st launch in May is by USA. It was SpaceX 5th launch this year.

    https://www.nasaspaceflight.com/2019...7-mission-iss/

    SpaceX’s Dragon spacecraft has begun its CRS-17 resupply mission to the International Space Station with launch aboard a Falcon 9 rocket from Cape Canaveral. Falcon 9 launched at 02:48 Eastern Time (06:48 UTC) on Saturday, deploying Dragon into orbit less than ten minutes later. The launch came after a 24 hour delay due to a scrub caused by a power outage on the booster recovery drone ship “Of Course I Still Love You”.

    Rocket Lab launched their Electron rocket for its second launch of 2019. In its sixth overall mission, Electron launched the SPARC-1, Falcon ODE, and Harbinger satellites into orbit, as part of the Space Test Program (STP). The launch took place at 6:00 UTC, from Rocket Lab Launch Complex 1 (LC-1) in New Zealand, following a dayís delay for additional payload checks.

    Like all Electron missions, the rocket itself has received a special name. This rocket is named Thatís a Funny Looking Cactus, for the deserts of New Mexico Ė where the STP is based.

    That and SpaceX's barge name of “Of Course I Still Love You”; we seem to be in an era of funny names for spaceflight. I don't mind, as long as we don't have "Rockety McRocketFace".

    We've had Snoopy, Charlie Brown, Gumdrop, Spider, and Molly Brown, so I say "Picky, picky, picky."
    There is something fascinating about science. One gets such wholesale returns of conjecture out of such a trifling investment of fact.

    Those were for the most part single word designators no a sentence, but your point is kinda made.

    I wasn't being picky, I was being amused. But yes, I had forgotten about all the funny Apollo command module / lander name combinations.

    India upgraded its reconnaissance capabilities through the launch of a RISAT-2B radar imaging satellite Wednesday. Liftoff from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre aboard a PSLV rocket occurred at 05:30 local time (00:00 UTC), with the launch lasting fifteen and a half minutes from liftoff to spacecraft separation.

    The 32nd launch this year as well as the 5th launch in May is by China. There are reports that the launch might have failed. I have it down as a failed launch unless we have other news.

    https://spacenews.com/china-appears-...aunch-failure/

    A planned launch of a remote sensing satellite from Taiyuan in north China may have ended in failure, with the lack of an official statement suggesting an issue with the mission.

    Airspace closure notices issued days in advance indicated a launch of a Long March rocket from Taiyuan was due to take place between 6:45 and 7:06 p.m. Eastern Wednesday (6:45-7:06 a.m. local time Thursday).

    Amateur footage and images posted on Chinese social media platforms apparently consistent with a morning launch from Taiyuan Satellite Launch Center suggest the launch of a Long March 4C three-stage hypergolic rocket took place around 6:49 p.m. Eastern.

    This has been confirmed in the Chinese press but it is in Chinese.

    I don't know how accurate, but Google translate made this out of it:

    Xinhua News Agency, Taiyuan, May 23rd, on the morning of May 23rd, China launched the remote sensing No.33 satellite with the Long March 4C carrier rocket at the Taiyuan Satellite Launch Center. The first and second stage rockets are normal, and the third-level work is abnormal. Data surveillance judged that the rocket's third-level and satellite wreckage had fallen and the satellite launch failed. The troubleshooting and related processing work has been fully carried out.

    The 33rd launch this year as well as the 6th launch in May is by USA. It is SpaceX's 6th launch this year.

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

    he much-awaited and heralded launch of SpaceX’s Starlink internet satellite constellation launched on Thursday. With the twice-flown Falcon 9 rocket on SLC-40 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida, SpaceX deployed the first batch of 60 Starlink satellites. The launch was slightly delayed due to unacceptable Upper Level Winds scrubbed the first launch attempt. Then, a week ago, a requirement to update the Starlink software delayed the launch into next week. However, the latest attempt launched without issue at the opening of the window at 10:30 pm Eastern.
