Traveling through time and space & Doing timey wimy stuff.

At 1901 Hours Morning Hong Kong Beijing Time  on a very clear 4th August 2021 Wednesday  2021, China- People’s Republic of China- CNSA –China National Space Administration   Successfully launched  the Long March 6 Chang Zheng 6 carrier rocket at the Taiyuan Satellite Launch Center Shanxi Province   China successfully launched Long March – Chang Zheng 6 carrier rocket at the Taiyuan Satellite Launch Center to successfully integrate the Zhongzi satellite constellation 02 group The satellite was sent into a predetermined orbit, and the launch mission was a complete success. This mission is the 382rd flight of the Long March series of carrier rockets

 Launching the Long March – Chang Zheng6 Carrier Rocket  vehicle carried out the third launch mission this year and successfully tested two multimedia betas at the Taiyuan Satellite Launch Center. The satellite was sent into a predetermined orbit, and the launch mission was a complete success.


This is the second space launch carried out by the Eighth Academy in seven days after the successful launch of Chang Zheng Carrier Rocket on July 29. The two satellites were developed by Shanghai Microsatellite Engineering Center and the user is Shanghai Yuanxin Satellite Technology Co., Ltd. This launch is the 382nd launch of the Long March series of carrier rockets, the 140th flight test of the Long March series of carrier rockets developed by the Eighth Academy of Sciences, and the seventh launch of the Long March 6 carrier rocket….

The newly-built launch tower of the Taiyuan Satellite Launch Center has been completed, and the improved Long March 6 rocket is expected to complete its first flight this year. The improved Long March 6 rocket adopts a two-and-a-half-stage configuration. The liquid core stage is bundled with four solid boosters. The liquid engine equipped with the core stage will also be increased to two, all of which are YF100 liquid oxygen kerosene engines. 

This mission is the third orbit (900km×89º) mission performed by the model after the typical SSO and LEO missions of the previous six missions, which further expands the mission adaptability of the Long March 6 launch vehicle. On the basis of the general technical status, in order to improve task adaptability, the dual-satellite parallel layout and simultaneous separation scheme was adopted, and several technical status changes were completed to further optimize and standardize the working process of the launch site, and the pre-launch process time was further compressed.

China used the Long March 6 carrier rocket at the Taiyuan Satellite Launch Center to successfully deploy the multimedia beta The experimental A/B satellite was sent to the reserved orbit, and the launch mission was a complete success. This mission is the 382nd flight of the Long March series of carrier rockets….

Beijing Tianlian Measurement and Control Technology Co., Ltd. (Tianlian Measurement and Control) uses multiple foreign satellite ground stations to provide Beta Double Star with measurement and control support for the orbit section, and undertake satellite in-orbit testing, load testing, and long-term operation and maintenance support services. So far, the Tianlian long-term monitoring and control tube has operated 51 satellites in orbit.
