Abstract:

All known artificial satellites launched between 1 January 1969 and 31 December 1971 are listed chronologically. Lifetimes, weights, dimensions and orbital details are given for instrumented satellites and their final-stage rockets. Minor fragments are listed without these details. The methods used in compiling the table are described. The report incorporates a large number of improvements made since the original monthly issues of the table, an index, and a list of amendments to Volume 1 RAE Technical Report 70020, which records satellites launched before January 1969.
