    The 3rd launch in March as well as the 19th launch this year is by China.

    https://www.nasaspaceflight.com/2021...light-mission/

    China has successfully launched the second Chang Zheng 7A (CZ-7A) rocket from the Wenchang Spacecraft Launch Site on Hainan Island, thus recovering from the first failed launch that took place almost one year ago. Carrying the mysterious Shiyan 9/Xinjishu Yanzheng-6-02 satellite, liftoff took place at 17:51 UTC on 11 March from the LC-201 launch complex.

    The Chang Zheng 7A represents a new step in replacing the older families of hypergolic fuelled launchers that have been the workhorse of the Chinese space program since its inception in the 1960s.

    Interesting that if you listed SpaceX separately, it would be ahead of every nation!

    The 8th launch in April as well as the 34th launch this year is by China.

    https://spaceflightnow.com/2021/04/2...module-launch/

    Chinese officials confirmed the successful launch of the first element of the country’s space station early Thursday, laying the keystone to a permanently-inhabited orbiting habitat that could welcome its first astronauts this summer.

    The liftoff of the Tianhe core module begins the most ambitious project in the history of China’s nearly 30-year human spaceflight program, which seeks to create a national space station after being shut out of the International Space Station, led by U.S. and Russian space agencies.

    China’s Tianhe space station core module rode a heavy-lift Long March 5B rocket into orbit after liftoff at 11:23:15 p.m. EDT Wednesday (0323:15 GMT; 11:23:15 a.m. Beijing time Thursday).

    The 9th launch in April as well as the 35th launch this year is by ESA.

    (this launch might have been just before the China launch)

    https://www.nasaspaceflight.com/2021...o-flight-vv18/

    After a five month grounding, Vega returned to flight following a launch failure in November 2020 — the rocket’s second in as many years. For its 18th mission, Vega launched the Pléiades-Neo 3 satellite along with several smaller rideshare payloads, taking advantage of the Small Satellite Mission Service offering from Arianespace, to Sun-synchronous orbit (SSO).

    Liftoff was timed for exactly 22:50 local time in French Guiana on Wednesday, 28 April — which was 21:50 Eastern in the United States and 01:50 UTC on Thursday, 29 April. This was Arianespace’s third launch of the year overall and the first from the agency’s primary launch site in French Guiana.
