This graph shows the number of civilian spacecraft launched every year since 1957 by the Soviet Union/Russia (in red), the United States (in blue), other governments (in gray: Europe, Japan, China, India, Canada, Israel and others) and by non-governmental sponsors (in green: private corporations and amateurs/students). It shows an average of 50 spacecraft launched yearly with a gradual augmentation over time (of some 30 launchs in the 1960s up to 70 at present time). Note that there was a peak of about 100 spacecraft/year at the end of the 1990s.
