China yesterday used its Long March 3B rocket to successfully launch two more GPS-type satellites for its planned Beidou constellation of 35 satellites.
They have launched about half the constellation this year, and plan to complete it next year.
The leaders in the 2018 launch race:
8 Europe (Arianespace)
China has widened its lead over the U.S. to 32 to 30 in the national rankings. China also seems on schedule to meet or at least come very close to its predicted 40 launches this year, a number that doubles its previous high.
