Traveling through time and space & Doing timey wimy stuff.

On the Monday 9th  January – 0600 morning Hour Hong- Kong SAR – Beijing time CNSA –China National Space Administration    The Chang Zheng – Long March 7AZ Y4 Carrier Rocket have been launched successfully from the Wenchang Spacecraft launch center, Hainan province, China, People’s Republic of China..  Launching from launch complex No. 201 station …… This launch is the 459th launch of the Long March series of launch vehicles.

Launching its In 2023, China’s space launch debut will be successful Chang Zheng – Long March 7AZ Y4 Carrier Rocket A successfully launched the Shijian-23 satellite At 6:00 Beijing time today, the Chang Zheng – Long March 7AZ Y4 Carrier Rocket ignited and took off from the Wenchang Space Launch Site in China, lifted Shijian-23 satellite straight into the sky, and then the satellite entered The orbit was scheduled, the launch was a complete success, and China Aerospace achieved a “good start” for the space launch in 2023.


The Shijian-23 satellite was developed by the Eighth Academy of China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation, and is mainly used for scientific experiments and technical verification.
The actual twenty-three satellites launched this time are currently the heaviest satellites launched by my country’s medium-sized high-orbit launch vehicle. In order to meet the load requirements, the Chang Zheng – Long March 7AZ Y4 Carrier Rocket team adopted the basic configuration of the 4.2-meter-diameter fairing and developed a star-rocket interface with a larger diameter.

The Shijian Satellite environmental Satellites is provisionments of The satellite is mainly used to carry out space environment detection and new technology test verification, The satellites will be used for space environmental exploration and new technologies. Test verification. The rockets and satellites for this mission were all developed by the Eighth Academy of China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation. Be used for space exploration and new technology tests.


In order to adapt to the trend of further increase in the weight of satellites in the future, the Chang Zheng – Long March 7AZ Y4 Carrier Rocket team will also develop an improved rocket that can adapt to the 5.2-meter diameter fairing by replacing the third sub-stage, and further improve the comprehensive performance of Chang Zheng – Long March 7AZ Y4 Carrier Rocket. performance.
This launch is the 459th launch of the Long March series of launch vehicles.
