I would like to know if it is possible to use a drone instead of the rocket to launch a satellite into orbit.

If no, then I would like to know why, and if yes, then in which countries would this be allowed?

    $\begingroup$ Check out what-if.xkcd.com/58 for an introduction to the basics of getting to orbit (and staying there). Then you can narrow down your question a bit, specifying the general approach you propose and focusing on a particular issue. $\endgroup$ – TooTea Dec 10 '19 at 12:54

    $\begingroup$ @TooTea thanks for the link it's clear my misconception about reaching to space $\endgroup$ – Jatin Parmar Dec 10 '19 at 13:14

    $\begingroup$ Surely most rockets are drones? $\endgroup$ – JCRM Dec 10 '19 at 14:59

    $\begingroup$ A drone is defined as a remote-controled or pilotless craft or vehicle. Cars, boats, planes, and walking robots can all be drones. All modern rockets except for those that launch humans are drones. $\endgroup$ – Dragongeek Dec 11 '19 at 10:38

    $\begingroup$ Well, even rockets that launch humans are for the most part of the flight autonomous drones with humans as cargo. $\endgroup$ – Khay Dec 11 '19 at 16:47
