Traveling through time and space & Doing timey wimy stuff.

At 23:19 Beijing time late nearly midnight on October 26th, 2020, CNSA – China National Space Administration …. China- People’s Republic of China successfully used the Long March 2C- Chang Zheng 2C carrier rocket at the Xichang Satellite Launch Center – Sichuan Province to successfully launch Remote Sensing 30 the 07 satellites were sent to the predetermined orbit and the launch was a complete success. The mission also launched the Yaogan constellation 06 satellites. This mission is the 350th flight of the Long March series of carrier rockets…..  Launched under the name Yaogan Weixing-30 Group-7, the three satellites were orbited by a Chang Zheng-2C launch vehicle from the LC-3…

Using  the Long March 2C – Chang Zheng 2C  Carrier Rocket at the Xichang Satellite Launch Center to successfully send the “Remote Sensing 30 Group 07” satellite into the scheduled orbit.  After the rocket lifted off, the Xi’an Satellite Measurement and Control Center Lingshui and Xiamen’s measurement and control stations found and tracked targets in time. As the last station of land-based measurement and control, the Xiamen Measurement and Control Station successfully completed the measurement and control task. ….. The Chuangxin-5 satellites were developed by the Chinese Academy of Sciences Small Satellite Center. All the Yaogan Weixing-30 / Chuangxin-5 missions were launch by Long March-2C rockets from Xichang Satellite Launch Center.

The first three satellites were launch on September 29, 2017, followed by another three satellites on November 24 the same year. This second group was orbited into an orbital plane 119° west of the first three satellites.

Launching into an orbital plane 120° east of the Group-1, the Yaogan Weixing-30 Group-3 was orbited on December 25th, 2017 year, being followed by another trio on January 25, 2018 year. On July 26, 2019, the Yaogan Weixing-30 Group-5 was launched and the Group-6 on the series was launched on March 24, 2020…..The three new satellites will possibly occupy the sixth plane of the system, with the satellites spaced by 120° in their orbits.

Also on this flight was Tianqi-6, a low-orbit communication satellite operated by Guodian Gaoke for IoT communications, which is also carrying a camera for educational purposes.

The satellite is part of the “Apocalypse Constellation” that provides users with much-needed data collection and transmission services for terrestrial network coverage blind areas, which are widely used in marine, environmental protection, meteorological, forestry, geological, emergency, rescue and smart city industries to enhance China’s global data network coverage and application capabilities are of strategic importance. Also providing Remote Sensing of mainly used to carry out electromagnetic environment detection and related technical tests….
