Well, I'm starting this thread early, but it has been a rough year with covid, and I figure myself and others need a pick-me-up.Link to last year's thread:https://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/index.php?topic=49397.0 Predictions for spaceflight 2021Water vapour detected in the atmosphere of an Earth-size exoplanet within 40 light yearsMore evidence of a second planet at Proxima CentauriEvidence of an Earth-size planet at Alpha Centauri BSpaceX continues its crew transportation to the ISS nominallySpaceX Starship makes it to orbit safelySpaceX will launch twice in the same day at least once JWST launches without incident and snaps a 1-4 pixel picture of an exoplanetNASA Curiosity rover keeps workingNASA’s InSight Lander stops communicating briefly; issue is quickly resolvedNASA’s TESS finds more Earth-size planets in the habitable zoneCovid-19 will continue to delay launches worldwideISRO will continue work on their reusable shuttleChina will have at least 10 successful launchesBetelgeuse will go supernova this year as seen from Earth
I have read on the UK space news some interesting facts. Some of them are:ULA now planning the first launch of Vulcan in 2021Vulcan was presented on April 13, 2015. United Launch Alliance is planning to launch it in six years after presenting.Trump seeks $15.4 billion for U.S. Space Force in 2021 budgetWe can wait for something really perspective from this.
I predict that JWST will not launch under the Harris administration.
I predict that a majority of the predictions in this thread will be proven to be wrong.

For sure there will be greater than 1 rocket launch in 2021.
