2023 in spaceflight

Summary

2023 in spaceflight
BFR at stage separation-2018 design.jpg
SpaceX's Starship is scheduled to conduct a crewed lunar flyby in 2023 at the earliest.

This article documents expected notable spaceflight events during the year 2023.

Overview

NASA plans to launch the Artemis 2 mission on the Space Launch System, sending astronauts around the moon on a ten day lunar flyby. SpaceX plans to conduct a crewed lunar flyby with Yusaku Maezawa using the Starship, a crewed spacecraft being developed with partial funding from Maezawa.[1] The flight, dubbed the dearMoon project, will include six to eight artists invited as passengers.

The first Indian crewed spaceflight, Gaganyaan 3, is planned for 2023.[2]

ESA plans to perform an orbital test flight of Space RIDER, an uncrewed spaceplane.[3][4]

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.
