Here are the planned space launches for this week.

Tuesday, December 10th

Blue Origin New Shepard 12 (NS-12) - Dec 10 @ 8:30am (central)

It’s the 6th flight for this particular New Shepard vehicle, marking the first time a Blue Origin booster has made this many consecutive flights (the previous booster flew five times consecutively) - all with minimal refurbishment between flights. This particular rocket has been an operational payload vehicle for several flights, meaning there are no more updates to the system. This will also be the 9th commercial payload mission for New Shepard, and will feature Blue Orgin's 100th cargo customer.
Also on the vehicle are thousands of postcards from students around the world for our nonprofit Club for the Future. The Club's mission is to inspire future generations to pursue careers in STEM and help visualize the future of life in space.
You can watch the launch live at BlueOrigin.com – the pre-show begins T-30 where Blue will provide more mission details and updates.

Russian Soyuz - Glonass M (navigation satellite) - Dec 10 @ 2:30am - 4:40am (central)
Russia will launch a Soyuz rocket with the latest Glonass M satellite. The Glonass system is the Russian version of the U.S. GPS system.

Wednesday, December 11th

Indian PSLV - RISAT 2BR1 - Dec 11 @ 3:55am (central)

The Indian Space Research Organization will launch a Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) with the RISAT 2BR1 radar system for Earth observation. Additional cargo includes several cubesats for Japanese, U.S., Italian, and Israeli customers.
