Launch time: TBD
Launch site:
Yellow Sea
A Chinese Long March 11 rocket will launch two Jilin 1 Earth-imaging satellites for Chang Guang Satellite Technology Co. Ltd. The solid-fueled Long March 11 rocket will take off from an ocean platform in the Yellow Sea on China’s first sea-based orbital launch attempt. [May 10]

Launch time: TBD
Launch site:
SLC-4E, Vandenberg Air Force Base, California
A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket will launch the Radarsat Constellation Mission for the Canadian Space Agency and MDA. Consisting of three radar Earth observation spacecraft launching on a single rocket, the Radarsat Constellation Mission is the next in a series of Canadian Radarsat satellites supporting all-weather maritime surveillance, disaster management and ecosystem monitoring for the Canadian government and international users. Delayed from November Feb. 18, March and May 16. [May 3]
