For the first time, a spacecraft was successfully released from a maritime platform in China on Wednesday.
According to the Chinese state media, the Long Run 11 missile missed the offshore platform of the Yellow Sea off the coast of Santung Province in East China with seven satellites. The satellites were set at about 600 km altitude on Earth. Five of the seven satellites are commercial satellites and two are experimental satellites developed by the Chinese Academy of Space Research for tracking and forecasting typhoons and other extreme weather phenomena.
Together with Wednesday’s launch, it was the 306’s of the Long Run, but the first one that was not on land-based launch.
In recent years, Beijing has placed particular emphasis on the development of space research. At the beginning of this year, he sent a space probe to the unseen dark side of the moon, and next year he started to build a new space station.
