    The 4th launch in August as well as the 62nd launch this year is by USA. It was SpaceX 13th launch this year.

    https://www.nasaspaceflight.com/2020...-sixth-flight/

    SpaceX has broken another reuse record on the Starlink v1.0 L10 mission. For the first time, a Falcon 9 first stage has launched a sixth mission, this one carrying three rideshare payloads along with a batch of Starlink satellites.


    Liftoff of the eleventh overall Starlink mission, and the tenth launch of the Version 1.0 satellites, occurred at 10:31 AM EDT (14:31 UTC) on Tuesday, August 18. The 45th Space Wing predicted an 80% chance of favorable weather for the launch.

    The 5th launch in August as well as the 63rd launch this year is by China.

    http://www.xinhuanet.com/english/202..._139311621.htm

    China successfully launched a new optical remote-sensing satellite from the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center in northwest China at 10:27 a.m. Sunday (Beijing Time).

    The satellite, Gaofen-9 05, was sent into orbit by a Long March-2D carrier rocket.

    Gaofen-9 05 has a resolution up to the sub-meter level. It will be mainly used for land surveys, city planning, land right confirmation, road network design, crop yield estimation and disaster prevention and mitigation.

    The 7th launch in August as well as the 65th launch this year is by New Zealand.

    https://www.nasaspaceflight.com/2020...urn-to-flight/

    Rocket Lab’s Electron smallsat launch vehicle successfully Returned To Flight with a mission nicknamed “I Can’t Believe It’s Not Optical”. This was the company’s first launch following an anomaly on the “Pics or it Didn’t Happen” flight that led to that mission’s failure.

    For its 14th flight, Electron carried Capella Space’s “Sequoia” microsatellite to a low-Earth orbit (LEO) from Launch Complex 1 on New Zealand’s Mahia Peninsula. Liftoff occurred August 31 at 03:05 UTC (11:05 pm EDT on the 30th).

    The 1st launch in September as well as the 66th launch this year is by ESA.

    https://spaceflightnow.com/2020/09/0...light-mission/

    Delayed a year by a launch failure, the coronavirus pandemic and a stretch of stiff upper level winds this summer, an Italian-made Vega rocket vaulted into orbit from French Guiana on Wednesday night and deployed 53 small satellites from 13 countries to punctuate a flawless return to flight mission.

    The rideshare launch set a record for the most satellites ever flown on a European rocket, and helped validate process changes introduced to resolve the problem on the Vega’s second stage that caused a failure on the launcher’s previous mission.

    The 98-foot-tall (30-meter) rocket lit its solid-fueled first stage at 9:51:10 p.m. EDT Wednesday (0151:10 GMT Thursday), immediately boosting the Vega launcher away from the European-run Guiana Space Center on the northern coast of South America with nearly 700,000 pounds of thrust.

    The 2nd launch in September as well as the 67th launch this year is by USA. It was SpaceX 15th launch this year.

    https://spaceflightnow.com/2020/09/0...well-underway/

    Sixty more satellites launched Thursday from the Kennedy Space Center to join SpaceX’s Starlink fleet, adding coverage to the broadband network as it is already “well into the first phase of testing.”

    The next 60 Starlink relay nodes blasted off at 8:46:14 a.m. EDT (1246:14 GMT) Thursday on top of a Falcon 9 rocket, riding SpaceX’s workhorse launcher into an orbit more between about 130 miles and 210 miles (210 and 340 kilometers) above Earth.

    The 3rd launch in September as well as the 68th launch this year is by China.

    https://spacenews.com/china-carries-...al-spacecraft/

    China launched an experimental reusable spacecraft Friday following months of low-key preparations at the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center.

    A Long March 2F launch vehicle delivered the spacecraft into orbit following launch at an unspecified time.

    Chinese state media Xinhua reported mission success just under three hours after the opening of the launch window at 1:23 a.m. Eastern. The ‘reusable experimental spacecraft’ is currently in orbit carrying out tests.

    The 5th launch in September as well as the 70th launch this year is by USA. The launch failed to reach orbit.

    https://www.forbes.com/sites/jonatha.../#32c0475b2116

    U.S. startup Astra says it has failed to reach orbit for the first time in a launch from Alaska's Kodiak Island, but plans to try again soon.

    At 11.20 P.M. Eastern Time yesterday, Friday, September 11, the California-based company’s Rocket 3.1 lifted off from Pacific Spaceport Complex Alaska on Kodiak Island. However, shortly after this launch, the mission came to a very sudden end.

    “Successful lift off and fly out, but the flight ended during the first stage burn,” the company wrote on Twitter. “It does look like we got a good amount of nominal flight time.”

    In an update on its website, company said the preliminary data showed the rocket performed well initially. However, the guidance system noticed some oscillations early in the flight, making the vehicle drift off course and leading to its engines being shutdown by the onboard safety system.

    “We didn’t meet all of our objectives, but we did gain valuable experience, plus even more valuable flight data,” the company said. “This launch sets us well on our way to reaching orbit within two additional flights, so we’re happy with the result.

    Launch of a Kuaizhou-1A satellite carrying a remote sensing satellite ended in failure following liftoff from Jiuquan Saturday.

    The Kuaizhou-1A solid rocket lifted off from a transporter erector launcher at Jiuquan in the Gobi Desert at 01:02 a.m. Eastern Saturday. Amateur footage of the apparent launch appeared on Chinese social media shortly after.

    https://www.nasaspaceflight.com/2020...ne-satellites/

    Three days after losing a high-resolution remote sensing satellite due to an apparent problem with its upper stage, China launched nine new satellites for the Jilin-1 remote sensing constellation from a barge out at sea.

    Launch of the nine Jilin-1 Gaofen-03 satellites took place at 01:23 UTC on Tuesday using the Long March-11H (Y2) rocket.

    Small typo issue - looks like the China row lost the failure count (4) on the last and the prior post, though it is still accounted for in the total (7) at the bottom.

    Thanks. I messed up the table in the prior post and somehow deleted the ESA and China line. Fixed now I hope, in the last post.
