Russia Overtook the USA in Number of Space Flights Again

In 2015 Russia has carried out 29 space launches, the Roscosmos state corporation reports.

      Over that period the USA executed 19 launches, with 2 of them emergency ones. 17 launches were made from Cape Canaveral and two more launches took place from Vandenberg.

      Altogether 86 launches of space carrier rockets have been carried out in the world in 2015. The biggest number of them were made by Russia: 29 launches, with most of them from the Baikonur Cosmodrome, just like in the previous years.

      The Russian orbital group is growing quantitatively and qualitatively. In 2015 17 unmanned spacecrafts were put to orbits for the benefit of Russian consumers. The possibilities of modern domestic communication satellites have extended significantly.
