November has arrived and with it, the new mission and launch calendar for the POT (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) and manufacturing companies such as Space X, directed by Elon Musk.
The first operation of the month, according to the website ‘Space Launches‘, has been developed in the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center (China), with the launch of Long March 2C rocket, whose main objective is to put two more satellites into orbit, as pointed out by the National Space Administration of China.

Regarding Musk, one of his main purposes is to return to the Moon through his Artemis project, although it was NASA which canceled the plans due to complaints from competing companies like Bezos’s Blue Origin and Dynetics. In the hypothetical case that the Musk’s plan, the arrival of the human being to the satellite could occur in 2024.
Blue Origin and NASA, no activity scheduled for November
