China completed its third launch in 2019 by using its Long March 3B rocket on Saturday to place a new communications satellite in orbit.

The leaders in the 2019 launch race:

3 SpaceX
3 China
2 Europe (Arianespace)

The U.S. still leads China in the national rankings 4 to 3.

  • The advantage China has is that they probably know the truth and don’t need to pretend that satellites do not need to be attached to anything higher like their counterparts in the Western World who must still protect the master delusion.
