Abstract:

Details of all satellites launched into orbit about the Earth have been published in The RAE Table of Earth Satellites, 1957-1980 Macmillan Press, 1981. The present report offers a similar listing, though in a different format, of all space vehicles that escaped from the Earths influence as a result of the 109 space launchings during the years 1958-1980. Whenever possible, the following details are given for each component name, international designation, date of launch, mass, basic shape and size, details of orbit or trajectory, and, where appropriate, the time and place or impact or landing on the Moon or a planet. The table is in six sections A orbits around the Sun B in the Earth-Moon system C and D around the Moon E around Mars and F around Venus. Author
