Summary

2022 in spaceflight
JUICE spacecraft concept.jpg
The European Space Agency is planning on launching the Jupiter Icy Moons Explorer to Jupiter in June 2022.

This article documents expected notable spaceflight events during the year 2022.

Overview

In 2022, the European Space Agency (ESA) plans to launch the JUICE spacecraft, which will explore Jupiter and its large ice-covered moons, following a seven-year transit.[1]

Arianespace's Ariane 6 will make its long-delayed maiden flight,[2] targeting a per-satellite launch cost similar to a Falcon 9.[3]

The ESA has partnered with Roscosmos to launch the Rosalind Franklin rover using the Kazachok lander as part of ExoMars 2022.[4]

The ESA also plans to perform an orbital test flight of Space RIDER, an uncrewed spaceplane.[5]

China will finish the construction of the Chinese Space Station (CSS), with the addition of the second lab module Mengtian.

Japan plans to launch the SLIM lunar lander.

The first Indian crewed spaceflight, Gaganyaan, is planned for late 2022.

Orbital launch statistics

By country

For the purposes of this section, the yearly tally of orbital launches by country assigns each flight to the country of origin of the rocket, not to the launch services provider or the spaceport. For example, Soyuz launches by Arianespace in Kourou are counted under Russia because Soyuz-2 is a Russian rocket.
