It was levity, not policy. I like nice things, too, AND I like to smile. ;)

That would be incredible, you should! I will definitely tune in if you do launch streams. :)

I'd have brought up the Long March launch at 11:00 p.m. EST but I can't find a stream of it, military launch  ^.^;;
I'll start up an "official" spaceflight thread on the new year which will probably start with the Jan 4/5th launch of Zuma from CCAFS, problem is I'm not always awake for these streams   T^T

Awesome! I'll be looking forward to your thread. Haha, no worries, I may not be awake all the time either for streams, but hopefully, I can catch a replay of it if I do happen to be asleep.

Land exploration satellite, intended to look for more mineral resources.

 

December 10, China launched an Algerian communications satellite, the first for Algeria.

 

December 4, China launched a land exploration satellite, which might be a military imaging satellite.

 

Last month was more interesting, with the launch of two Beidou global navigation satellites intended to upgrade the Beidou GPS.  This system has both civilian and military use.  In addition to that, towards the end of November, three mysterial satellites were sent up, possibly Yaogans, which is some sort of military surveillance satellite.

Russia launches rocket with 19 or 20 satellites from many nations including US, Canada, Germany, Japan, Sweden, and Norway.  One Russian satellite failed due to human input error using wrong launch coordinates.

Angola's first satellite included in that payload.

This is a huge swarm of satellites being sent up recently.

 

Angolan satellite however, lost contact.

On Christmas Day, China launches a trio of Yaogan satellites, which are mysterious military recon satellites.  These satellites are launched in threes, and this marks the third trio being launched this year, with the second trio launched last month.

Update:  Communication with Angolan satellite restored.
