China has launched three experimental telecommunications satellites

On Friday, May 20, the Chinese National Space Administration successfully launched three experimental telecommunications satellites into low Earth orbit. This was reported by the Chinese Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation.

 

As specified on her page on the WeChat social network, the launch was carried out at 18:30 Beijing time (13:30 Moscow time) using a CZ-2C rocket from the Jiuquan cosmodrome in the north of the country. It became the 421st in a row for the carriers of this series.

 

Beijing is actively developing the national space program, developing meteorological, telecommunications and navigation satellites, as well as technologies for the exploration of the Moon. Chinese scientists are simultaneously carrying out a project to explore asteroids and Mars. The construction of the PRC space station is underway in orbit, which according to the plan should start working this year.

 

In 2021, China carried out 55 launches, setting a national record. According to this indicator, China surpassed the United States, taking first place in the world.
