Traveling through time and space & Doing timey wimy stuff.

On a very dark Autumn pasting just of midnight with Xichang Satellite launch Center –  Sichuan province local residents crowds staying up celebrating Morning 0057 hour Beijing time on October 12th, 2020, watching a celebrating launch that celebrating China National Day also the Mid-Autumn festival in China – People’s Republic of China.  In which CSNA –China National Space Administration Successfully launched the Gaofen 13 satellite using the advance variant Long March 3B carrier rocket into schedule orbit deploying the Earth Sciences – Remote Sensing Optical Satellite The Gaofen 13 this marks the ., this launch is the 349th launch of the Long March series carrier rocket. (China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation) the advance variant of the Long March 3B is . For this mission, the Long March IIIB launch vehicle has undergone the most technological changes in recent years-16 first-flight first-use technologies have been updated, mainly involving satellite fairings, on-arrow pressurized transport systems, and three-stage rocket igniters , Laser inertial group data with amongingly with other modified systems..  


The Gaofen 13 satellite is a high-orbit optical remote sensing satellite, which is mainly used in fields such as land surveys and crop yield estimation. This mission is the 349th flight of the Long March series of carrier rockets…. The Gaofen 13 is an optical remote sensing satellite with a ground pixel resolution of up to sub-meter level. It is mainly used in territorial census, urban planning, land right confirmation, road network design, crop yield estimation, and disaster prevention and mitigation. , Which can provide information guarantee for the construction of the “Belt and Road Initiative.”

The Gaofen13  manufacturer is CAST – China Academy of Space Technology also in collaboration with its associate agency with CHEOS- China High Resolution Earth Observation System in which is design Built on a CAST 2000 Design Heritage Earth Sciences, in which is design for Translating Gaofen is High Resolution, also known as CHEOS- China High Resolution Earth Observation System, in which provisions in the real time observational data analysis of with high resolution multi spectra equipment imaging system in analysis for assessing environmental disaster warning, emergency response also for the protection for ecological, also providing support for infrastructure construction, transportation for various purpose of the Belt And Road initiative  … one of many specifications of the Gaofen 10 Earth Sciences satellite is The high-resolution satellite is a large-scale remote sensing satellite system for the national science and technology major special arrangement of the microwave remote sensing satellite, the ground pixel resolution is up to sub-meter …
