Traveling through time and space & Doing timey wimy stuff.

At 0216 Hours Hong Kong Beijing Time  on a very clear 16TH April 2022, China- People’s Republic of China- CNSA –China National Space Administration   Successfully launched  the New Next Generation Long March 4C Chang Zheng 4C carrier rocket at the Taiyuan Satellite Launch Center Shanxi Province …… successfully launched the atmospheric environment monitoring satellite using the Long March 4C carrier rocket at the Taiyuan Satellite Launch Center. The satellite successfully entered the predetermined orbit, and the launch mission was a complete success. This mission is the 416th flight of the Chang Zheng Long March series of launch vehicles

The satellite successfully entered the predetermined orbit, and the launch mission was a complete success. The satellite is mainly used to monitor regional ambient air quality and ecological environment, and provide data support for improving my country’s comprehensive atmospheric environment monitoring, global climate change research, crop yield estimation, and agricultural disaster monitoring all developed by the Eighth Academy of China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation…..  

The atmospheric environment monitoring satellite is a scientific research satellite in the national civil space infrastructure medium and long-term development plan, and it is also the world’s first satellite with carbon dioxide laser detection capability. It is equipped with five remote sensing instruments, including atmospheric detection lidar, high-precision polarization scanner, multi-angle polarization imager, ultraviolet hyperspectral atmospheric composition detector and wide-field imaging spectrometer, which can greatly improve global carbon monitoring and atmospheric pollution monitoring capabilities.

During the “14th Five-Year Plan” period, my country will also launch high-precision greenhouse gas comprehensive detection satellites, which will be networked with atmospheric environment monitoring satellites to further improve my country’s space-based carbon monitoring capabilities and level, and contribute to the construction of my country’s ecological civilization and the realization of the “dual carbon” goal. Contribute to aerospace power.


For this launch mission, Taiyuan Satellite Launch Center used the ground measurement, launch and control system of the unified WRP002 carrier rocket for the first time. This launch is the 90th launch of the Chang Zheng Long March 4 series of launch vehicles and the 416th launch of the Long March series of launch vehicles

After the in-orbit application of the satellite, it will significantly improve the quantitative remote sensing service capabilities in many fields such as ecological environment, meteorology and agriculture, help my country achieve national strategies such as carbon neutrality and carbon peaking, and ecological civilization construction, and promote the construction of a aerospace power.
