Wait, Brazil has a launch pad ?
The sentence "Of the BRICS members, only South Africa lacks its own sensing satellites " made me do a double-take. Brazil can launch rockets ?
Well, yes it can. And so can a lot of others I wouldn't have thought of.
In that list of 119 launch sites (including two at sea), there are countries I couldn't believe. Israel has a launch site. How that doesn't incinerate the whole tiny country is beyond me. Irak has a launch site. Who'd've thought ?
We have 119 rocket launching sites in the world. That makes for an insane amount of launch capability.
