    Arianespace has used — with Russia’s support — a Soyuz ST-A rocket to launch a joint military and civilian Earth imaging satellite for the United Arab Emirates Armed Forces from the Guiana Space Centre near Kourou, French Guiana.

    Liftoff of the Falcon Eye 2 satellite occurred at 20:33:28 EST on Tuesday, 1 December (01:33:28 UTC on Wednesday, 2 December) to ensure the satellite reached the proper sun-synchronous orbit at a mean altitude of 611 km.

    The 3rd launch in December as well as the 100th launch this year is by China.

    https://www.nasaspaceflight.com/2020...ing-gaofen-14/

    China launched the Gaofen-14 surveying and mapping satellite on Saturday. The launch took place at 03:58 UTC using a Long March-3B/G5 (Chang Zheng-3B/G5) from the LC3 Launch Complex at the Xichang Satellite Launch Center. This was the first use of the G5 version of the Long March-3B that features a longer fairing.

    The 4th launch in December as well as the 101st launch this year is by USA. It was SpaceX 23rd launch this year.

    https://spaceflightnow.com/2020/12/0...n-cargo-ships/

    An upgraded version of SpaceX’s Dragon cargo freighter launched Sunday from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida, loaded with 3.2 tons of supplies and experiments in the first of at least nine resupply flights to the International Space Station under a new NASA contract.

    The cargo capsule lifted off on top of a 215-foot-tall (65-meter) Falcon 9 rocket at 11:17:08 a.m. EST (1617:08 GMT) Sunday, vaulting away from pad 39A with 1.7 million pounds of thrust from nine Merlin main engines.

    The launch signaled the start of SpaceX’s 21st operational resupply flight to the space station, and the first using the company’s new generation of Dragon cargo capsules. The first 20 flights, spanning a period from 2012 until earlier this year, used a now-retired version of the Dragon spacecraft.

    The second-generation Dragon supply ship is based on SpaceX’s Crew Dragon vehicle designed to fly with astronauts. On the cargo capsule, SpaceX removed the crew-rated ship’s launch abort system and replaced the vehicle’s touchscreen displays and seats with racks and freezers to hold supplies and experiments.

    I'm curious if you are going to count the most recent SpaceX BEO launch in your statistics?

    Actually this was something I was going to bring up. While the list here says 23 SpaceX launches other places are saying 24. The difference is that other sources are including the launch abort test back in January. Which was definitely a launch and a successful one since blowing up was part of the plan. With Virgin Galactic due to fly their suborbital mission soon I think we need to decide whether to limit the list just to launches intended to reach orbit or include test launches and suborbital as well.

    The count only includes launches that try and put satellites into orbit. Otherwise it will have to include all suborbital launches.

    My bad I thought that you had included sub-orbital flights for some reason.

    Apologies to all.

    My bad I thought that you had included sub-orbital flights for some reason, as in below earth orbit.

    The 7th launch in December as well as the 104th launch this year is by USA. It was SpaceX 24th launch this year. (my tally is one off from the article)

    https://www.nasaspaceflight.com/2020...lcon9-of-year/

    Two days after a last-second scrub, SpaceX launched a Falcon 9 rocket with the SiriusXM-7 (SXM-7) high power broadcasting satellite. The Falcon 9 lofted SXM-7 to a geostationary transfer orbit (GTO).

    The SXM-7 mission will continue to break records SpaceX set in 2018. With 21 launches in 2018, SpaceX broke that record with the Sentinel-6A Michael Freilich mission in November 2020. The SXM-7 mission will mark the 25th flight of the year for SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket.

    The 11th launch in December as well as the 108th launch this year is by Russia. I am crediting the launch to Russia as it is a Russian rocket launching on Russian soil.

    Arianespace, contracted through OneWeb, used a Russian Soyuz 2.1b rocket with a Fregat upper stage to place 36 new OneWeb satellites into orbit for the British government. The move resumed OneWeb launch operations after the company itself went bankrupt earlier this year.

    Liftoff occurred at 07:26:26 EST (12:26:26 UTC) on Friday, 18 December from Site 1S at the Vostochny Cosmodrome in eastern Russia. The mission will take nearly 4 hours to complete deployment of the all the satellites.

    Rounding off a record-breaking and historic launch manifest for 2020, SpaceX conduct its second dedicated launch for the United States National Reconnaissance Office (NRO) on Saturday – following a scrub on Thursday – with a flight-proven Falcon 9 carrying out the NROL-108 mission.

    Liftoff from the Kennedy Space Center’s Launch Complex 39A (LC-39A) occurred at the start of a three-hour window, at 09:00 EST (14:00 UTC) on Saturday.

    The 13th launch in December as well as the 110th launch this year is by China.

    Long March-8 has had a successful launch. Well done China

    This launch is not reusable launch. Following the chat, the reusable version will be known as Long March-8R and will be different from SpaceX Falcon. The difference is, the center core and the two side boosters will not separate but will land as one unit.

    From the NASA forum we have the following :-

    https://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/in...msg2171436#new

    China's new medium-lift carrier rocket Long March-8 made its maiden flight on Tuesday, sending five satellites into planned orbit, according to the China National Space Administration (CNSA).

    The rocket blasted off from the Wenchang Spacecraft Launch Site on the coast of southern China's island province of Hainan at 12:37 p.m. (Beijing Time).
