China sends five satellites into orbit by sea launch
China successfully sent five satellites into space from the East China Sea on April 30. The five satellites, including the Jilin-1 Gaofen 03D, were launched by a Long March-11 carrier rocket at 11:30 Beiing Time and have entered the planned orbit. The newly-launched satellites will provide commercial remote sensing data services for sectors including land resource survey, urban planning and disaster monitoring. This mission is China's third sea-based launch mission, which further expanded the maneuvering range of maritime launch and accumulated technological expertise for future long-distance sea-based launch missions. The mission's success will lay cornerstones for normalized and high-frequency launches at sea in the future.
The number of launches is a wonder but the fact that they were launched on sea is a marvel.
This actually means that they could technically sail the platform around the world and launch the rocket from any convenient location.
The number of launch into space exceeded any countries around the globe, welldone China
Congratulations on another successful launch!
A beautiful cold launch. The Soviets pioneered the missile cold-launch method in the 1950s.
This is what we all want to see…rockets launched at sea carrying satellites and not bombs.
Well done to the great Engineers of China ! The Chinese are showing why they are starting to lead the World in the science and advanced technology !
Well done China
Sea launch is so cool i hope more space agencies and privates space companys to do it
It boggles the mind how far and how fast China has come in the past few decades.
Two-stage propulsion is a very versatile technology and very cool visually, well done!
bravo china! In the future, China must be able to launch rockets into space
China is a Great country and Wonderful Nation
If you launch a rocket at the equator, you get extra acceleration from the earth’s rotation. That’s one way to get an extra boost.
keep it up , good job
Uderally amazed with china's accomplishments
China needs LEO satellites. It is clear from the Russian Ukranian conflict that LEO helps augment exsting weapon systems so artillery become that much more lethal. You can be that in any future conflict against let’s say India, the US will provide LEO to help them shell key Chinese positions. Because China is behind in LEO, this is a crucial weak spot that needs to be addressed.
Congratulations to China . Well done
China and her technology never cease to amaze me! Outstanding!
long live the great nation of China
That's cool. Well done! JIA U
time for the chinese to take their place in history the west had so many chances to do right , lets hope the chinese dont make the same mistakes...
Wow another Milestone.....Great News!
Alpha & Omega
US must be biting their fingernail saying shit another launch lol
And a new era of humanity had come
Wow go China.
Congratulations China, another technological marvel.
can someone please tell me, has nasa launched from a ship? i think this is a really big deal!!
This was just a begng
They will need them as the US/NATO will be coming after they are done in the Ukraine
I thought China can launch ballistic missiles from nuclear powered submarines yesterday.
this is a small step to build a moon base
Soon China will launch mini satellite from home.
We've already made earth into a sh$thole, let's make space a sh$thole aswell
China doesn't get envolved in wars, they work and make money.
land and sea
China has long way to catch up with western technologies.
