From time to time we hear messages about space vehicles launches and sometimes about unsuccessful attempts. The former and especially the latter ones are widely broadcasted trough the TV and the Inter...
net, being an exciting show for the viewers. We present not less exciting statistics on space launches on the underlying charts and tables.
As you can see from the first chart, total number of space launches decreased slightly in 2012 compared to 2011 breaking general upward tendency which has been lasting during last 9 years. The same picture is for the successful attempts: their share in total number of launches in 2012 keep on falling since 2010. However, 2013 seems more positive in this aspect: if tendency remains unchanged through the rest of the year, 2013 will be able to become the most successful year of the last decade.
Over the last 12 years Russia has undertaken 329 space launches, becoming the top country in the world ranking by number of space launches. Nevertheless, with 14 failures out of 329 attempts, Russia keeps the fifth position in the world ranking by success rate, passing forward French Guinea, United States, Japan and China.
