space launches


  1. This is a cool idea, but the infographic seems not well thought out IMO as i’m not quite getting it.  I don’t understand why the bar graphs are mirrored about a centerline, and also the payload scale at the top doesn’t appear to match up to anything at all.

    Source link might help?

  2. The first thing I noticed is that in the image here, the US launches look like a space shuttle. If the article had actually linked to the PDF, I’d have likely noticed that the USSR launched more things into space.
