Being new to the site I was exploring the Data section and stumbled upon @agirlcodings Dataset (https://www.kaggle.com/agirlcoding/all-space-missions-from-1957)
it captured my attention over the weekend and turned into a great learning experience. After speaking with @agirlcoding she said she had no problem with my uploading this here. What really got caught my focus was learning more about the relationship between the nations involved and the economic forces at play so I added some extra columns. I hope you guys enjoy it. I would appreciate any feedback.
What is included is a DataFrame of every Space launch from 1957 to the Modern-day. Included for each launch is the organization responsible for the launch. you will also see where and when the launch took place. I took the liberty of breaking down the country of the launch and the companies country of origin into separate columns. This is with the hope of seeing how relations between nations could change over time. and finally the aspect I find the most interesting is the private versus state-run. all my information was gathered via Wikipedia so take that as you will.
