The NASA major launch record includes all launches of scout class and larger vehicles. Vehicle and spacecraft development flights are also included in the major launch record. Shuttle missions are counted as one launch and one payload, where free flying payloads are not involved. Satellites deployed from the cargo bay of the shuttle and placed in a separate orbit or trajectory are counted as an additional payload.
