    Number of launches in 2021

    No launch has taken place yet this year but we should be watching not a country but a company. SpaceX. They have stated they will have at least 50 launches this year. The other category we need to watch are the small rockets. More than a dozen will be trying their 1st rocket this year.

    Heh, funny to see the 2021 bit. Still 2020 here for seven hours.

    SpaceX always tends to overstate goals a bit (mind you, they manage to do a lot too, just often don’t hit ambitious goals) so I’ll believe their launch numbers when I see them. My biggest concern would be if something again goes seriously wrong with a Falcon 9. They’ve been doing really well on that score for some time, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see something happen eventually. That could easily put them back for a good chunk of the year.

    I will recklessly make a couple of predictions. SpaceX will beat 30 launches for the year, possibly including an SS/SH test, and SLS will not launch in 2021.

    "China's CASC targets more than 40 space launches in 2021" and into this we need to add the Chinese commercial players. This gives us a total of 45 to 50 launches this year from China.

    https://spacenews.com/chinas-casc-ta...nches-in-2021/

    China’s main space contractor aims to conduct more than 40 orbital launches in 2021, including launching a space station module and human spaceflight missions.

    The China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation (CASC) announced the target at a meeting Jan. 4, in a work report outlining major tasks for 2021. China launched 39 times last year, continuing the accelerated launch rate of the past few years.

    A terse summary of the report in a CASC press release (Chinese) stated that missions related to the Chinese Space Station complex would be among the planned 40-plus launches.

    I had the USA at 35 launches last year but spaceflight now has a figure of 44. Not sure where the difference comes from. Would be grateful if others could check what I put out for errors.

    "U.S. companies, led by SpaceX, launched more than any other country in 2020"

    https://spaceflightnow.com/2021/01/0...untry-in-2020/

    Leading all other nations, U.S. launch providers flew 44 missions in 2020 that aimed to place payloads in Earth orbit or deep space, with 40 successes. China followed with 35 successful orbital missions in 39 launch attempts.

    Russia’s space program was in third place with 17 successful launches of Russian-built rockets in as many tries, including two Soyuz missions from the European-run spaceport in French Guiana. European-built launchers reached orbit four times in five attempts, and Japanese vehicles launched four times, all successfully.

    Rocket Lab is a US company, and that adds seven, so 42. I’m not sure about the other two. You list by the country rockets are launched from, not by rocket ownership, so the numbers are bound to be a bit different.

    Thanks, that explains the difference.

    Rocket Lab I classified as New Zealand, as the driving force behind it is a New Zealander, and most of the work is done there. ESA is another exception to the rule. They launch from South America. They also use Russian rockets for some of their launches from their launch site.

    One of those will be the SpaceX launch abort test.

    The 1st launch in January as well as the 1st launch this year is by USA. It was SpaceX 1st launch this year.

    https://www.nasaspaceflight.com/2021...t-launch-year/

    SpaceX began the global launch year with the flight of Türksat 5A, a Turkish communications satellite.

    Liftoff of the Falcon 9 rocket occurred from SLC-40 at the Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida during a 4-hour launch window on Thursday evening, with liftoff at 21:25 EST (8 January at 02:15 UTC).

    As many as 53 space missions are projected to lift off in 2021 from Florida’s Space Coast, the vice commander of the 45th Space Wing said Jan. 12. “We have 53 launches in our forecast with one already on the books,” Col. Brande Walton told the National Space Club of Florida during an online event.

    The 2nd launch in January as well as the 2nd launch this year is by USA.

    I have put Virgin Orbit as American, as it is incorporated in the USA and most of the work is done there.

    https://www.nasaspaceflight.com/2021...nasa-cubesats/

    [QUOTEAfter an eight month stand down to resolve issues revealed during the first mission of Virgin Orbit’s LauncherOne rocket, the company made their second orbital launch attempt on Sunday, January 17. The air-launched rocket successfully carried ten CubeSats to their target orbit for NASA’s Educational Launch of Nanosatellites (ELaNa) program.

    The cosmic girl aircraft took off at 10:38 PST (18:38 UTC). Launch occurred at 11:39 PST (19:39 UTC), a little under halfway into the four hour launch window that opened at 10:00 PST (18:00 UTC). Backup launch dates were available later in January.][/QUOTE]

    Falcon 9 Block 5 — Turksat 5A was already launched on the 8th of January, LauncherOne — ELaNa XX - January 17, and Electron — OHB Cosmos on January 20th, so I am pretty sure that SpaceX will complete the plan.

    The 5th launch in January as well as the 5th launch this year is by USA. It was SpaceX 2nd launch this year.

    https://arstechnica.com/science/2021...r-rapid-reuse/

    The Falcon 9 rocket took off on schedule on Wednesday morning, lofting its payload of 60 Starlink Internet satellites toward orbit. Then came something of a challenge for this first stage—sticking the landing. According to SpaceX engineer Jessie Anderson, winds at the surface near the landing site were stronger than what Falcon 9 rockets have experienced on previous flights.

    The 6th launch in January as well as the 6th launch this year is by USA. It was SpaceX 3rd launch this year.

    https://www.nasaspaceflight.com/2021...program-debut/

    SpaceX launched their third mission of 2021 and the first of many planned Smallsat Rideshare Program missions, which are designed by the company to give small satellite operators the chance to launch together as a way to reduce cost on regularly scheduled flights to frequently used orbits.

    The flight, called Transporter-1, lifted off with a record number of satellites on Sunday, January 24 at 10:00 EST (15:00 UTC) at the opening of a 22 minute launch window from Space Launch Complex 40 (SLC-40) in Florida.

    The 2nd launch in February as well as the 9th launch this year is by Russia.

    https://www.nasaspaceflight.com/2021...ified-payload/

    The Russian Aerospace Forces, itself a division of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, has launched a Lotos reconnaissance satellite to compliment their next-generation Liana SIGINT (signal intelligence) satellite system.
