    The 6th launch in March as well as the 22nd launch this year is by ESA.

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

    On Saturday, Arianespace – in conjunction with its Starsem affiliate – launched a Soyuz 2.1b/Fregat-M rocket with 34 OneWeb Internet satellites to low Earth orbit. Liftoff from Site No. 31/6 at the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan occurred at 1:06 pm EDT (17:06 UTC).

    The launch of this mission saw the continued use of the Baikonur Cosmodrome for Arianespace, which normally conducts launches from the Guiana Space Centre in Kourou, French Guiana.

    The flight was conducted under a commercial launch agreement held by Arianespace through shareholding in an affiliate named Starsem – a joint European-Russian company that is responsible for the commercial launch procurement of Soyuz vehicles for the Russian Space Agency, Roscosmos.

    Can someone help me out here. This was a Soyuz 2 rocket launched from Russia. Is that a Russian launch or an ESA launch.

    I would call it the launch origin, therefore Russian.

    By that definition, all ESA launches in French Guiana will not be credited to ESA.

    The problem I have with this launch is, NASA gives ESA credit, while the other sites like spaceflightnow give the credit to Russia.

    I would look at the booster origin. Soyuz, Proton = Russian. Ariane, Vega = Europe. Falcon, Delta = US, Long March = China... So even when a Soyuz is launching a US or ESA mission, it's counted as Russian.

    That said, there is no "right" way to count this.
    With sufficient thrust, water towers fly just fine.

    The payload is ESA for sure, there have been many SpaceX launches that carry other countries payloads, besides the US, and those are counted as US launches. Another aspect, who controls the launch/trajectory?

    I disagree. Should the US import a Soyuz rocket and launch it from the Cape, you would count it as a Russian launch?

    I believe there lies a different "description" between reporting agencies and that is the confusion.

    If the Russians send a Soyuz into space with a Russian mission from the Guiana spaceport, is it a Russian launch or an ESA one?
    If the US sends two astronauts into space with a Soyuz from a Russian base, it is a Russian launch or a US one?
    If ESA sends an ESA mission into space with a Soyuz from Guiana?

    Apparently the payload doesn't count, as all commercial launches are counted with the launch agency, not the payload owner.
    If the launch site counts, Guiana makes counting this way a mess with the ESA and Soyuz pads there.
    And that's why I would simply go with the booster origin.

    It is ESA that is causing the confusion. They have launched Soyuz rockets from Guiana several times. They have always counted as ESA's launches. This time the confusion come from they launching from Russia (I take it that is because Guiana is closed due to the virus)

    The 7th launch in March as well as the 23rd launch this year is by China.

    https://www.nasaspaceflight.com/2020...ixing-mission/

    After losing the first Long March-7A one week ago, China launched a new group of triplet satellites for the Chuangxin-5 (CX-5) constellation. Launched under the name Yaogan Weixing-30 Group-6, the three satellites were orbited by a Long March-2C launch vehicle from the LC3 Launch Complex of the Xichang Satellite Launch Center. The launch took place at 03:43 UTC.

    Was that "ESA" mission from Russia done using ESA launch crews, etc? If not, I'd count it for Russia.

    If a Soyuz rocket launches from ESA Guiana spaceport who controls the launch and flight? It is NOT the Russians, therefore it is NOT a Russian launch but a ESA since they own/operate the spaceport in Guyana.
    Yes when the US sends astronauts to the ISS using a Soyuz rocket from Baikonur, it is a Russian launch since they control the launch/trajectory of the rocket.
    Yes when ESA sends a Russian rocket from Guiana from their spaceport then it is an ESA launch since they control the launch/trajectory.

    Apparently the payload doesn't count, as all commercial launches are counted with the launch agency, not the payload owner.
    If the launch site counts, Guiana makes counting this way a mess with the ESA and Soyuz pads there.
    And that's why I would simply go with the booster origin.
    I agree that the payload and payload owner don't count as I referred to SpaceX launching payloads not owned or operated by the US or SpaceX.

    Carrying your philosophy to a further extension, then all of SpaceX, launces can't be counted as US launches since they build/own/operate the rockets not the US, so their launches can't be US. Do you see the fallacy of counting launches from the rocket? If not so be it. You have your opinion and I have mine and I respect your opinion even though I believe it to be incorrect.
    That being said, this is the last reply on this matter. Reply if you must.

    They are still US launches if you consider the country in which the booster is designed and built, not just the government. I live in a country that most of the time doesn't have a government so I have a different perception on this.

    I believe it is A Russian crew that launches it from Guiana with ESA overseeing it.

    https://www.nasaspaceflight.com/2020...forces-aehf-6/

    United Launch Alliance’s Atlas V rocket carried out its first mission for the United States Space Force Thursday, deploying the final Advanced Extremely High Frequency (AEHF) satellite to provide secure communications for the US military and its allies. Liftoff from the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station ahead of a long mission to deployment.

    The 1st launch in April as well as the 25th launch this year is by Russia.

    https://www.nasaspaceflight.com/2020...-launch-ms-16/

    For the first time since 2002, humans departed for the International Space Station from Kazakhstan on a rocket other than the veteran Soyuz-FG, which was retired last year. Now, the Soyuz 2.1a rocket took up crew launch duties for the Russian element of crew support for the Station.

    The Soyuz MS-16 three-person crew lifted off from Site No. 31/6 at the Baikonur Cosmodrome, Kazakhstan, on 9 April 2020 at 08:05:06 UTC (04:05:06 EDT) to begin a four orbit, six hour rendezvous with the Station.

    Docking is expected at 14:15 UTC (10:15 EDT).

    A new communications satellite was launched for Indonesia by China Great Wall Industry Corporation on Thursday using a Long March-3B/G2 (Chang Zheng-3B/G2) rocket. The launch took place at 11:45 UTC from the LC2 pad at the Xichang Satellite Launch Center.

    There was a failure with the 3rd stage.

    https://www.nasaspaceflight.com/2020...ian-satellite/

    A new communications satellite attempted to make its way into for Indonesia called Nusantara Dua via a China Great Wall Industry Corporation launch on Thursday using a Long March-3B/G2 (Chang Zheng-3B/G2) rocket. The launch took place at 11:48 UTC from the LC2 pad at the Xichang Satellite Launch Center, but reportedly failed during third stage flight. The satellite is understood to have already reentered and has thus been destroyed.

    Unfortunately, it had a third stage failure and the satellite payload and stage reentered the atmosphere.

    Not in a row. The last one was a success. The one before that failed.

    Van Rijn thanks for pointing that out.

    The 3rd launch in April as well as the 27th launch this year is by Iran.

    https://spaceflightnow.com/2020/04/2...lite-in-orbit/

    Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps — a branch of the country’s armed forces — launched a small military spacecraft into orbit Wednesday, ending a string of rocket failures in the nascent Iranian satellite program.

    The small military craft, named Noor, flew into orbit on top of a multi-stage Qased rocket, according to Iranian state media.

    The 4th launch in April as well as the 28th launch this year is by USA. It was SpaceX 6th launch this year.

    https://www.nasaspaceflight.com/2020...ader-starlink/

    As SpaceX continued its steady march of Starlink internet satellite launches, the company reached a new milestone with the seventh flight of Starlink on Wednesday: Falcon 9 took the mantle of “most flown currently operational U.S. rocket” from Atlas V.

    Meanwhile, SpaceX is actively making moves on the ground, securing FCC permits for Starlink ground terminals/stations across the United States.

    The seventh flight of Starlink satellites launched Wednesday, 22 April at 15:30 EDT (19:30 UTC) from LC-39A at the Kennedy Space Center.

    Hi selvaarchi,

    How did China's failure count get reduced?

    While I'm here, congrats to Iran. It's all good for space development.

    cheers
