This documentary, in the form of a satellite map, enables you to zoom in on the non-military government and private spaceports around the world. Spaceports that most of us did not know even existed. Many of these are associated with historical space events by Astronauts and Cosmonauts of the American and Russian space programs

Color coding:

• Red dots are those spaceports associated with the launch of humans. • Yellow dots are those associated with the launch of non-military satellites such as communication satellites, biosatellites, astronomical satellite, navigational satellites and weather satellites.
