The stars are aligning for Tuesday to be quite the bookend to a transformational year for commercial space exploration.

Four different companies have rocket launches slated for Dec. 18: Elon Musk’s SpaceX, Jeff Bezos’s Blue Origin, France’s Arianespace and United Launch Alliance, the joint venture between Boeing Co. and Lockheed Martin Corp. Assuming weather holds up and last-minute technical issues can be avoided, it will be the first time so many rockets will fly on a single day.
