On the 10th December 2023 in CNSA _China National Space Administration -China – People’s Republic of China 0958 hours Hong Kong –Beijing Time China- People’s Republic of China launch the Chang Zheng – Long march 2D Carrier Rocket launching from station form Xichang Satellite Launch Center Sichuan Province….. In which中国 successfully launched the Yaogan remote sensing 39 satellite, Was developed by the Fifth and Eighth Institutes of China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation. Space, the satellite successfully entered the scheduled orbit, and the launch mission was a complete success. This mission is the 500th flight of the Long March series of launch vehicles….
Records are made and broken. We look forward to the next 100 times coming as soon as possible!
Successfully launched from the Xichang Satellite Launch Center, accurately sending the Remote Sensing 39 satellite into the predetermined orbit. This launch is the 500th launch of the Long March series of launch vehicles, once again setting a new height for China’s aerospace industry.
“Long March 2D” is a medium-sized two-stage room-temperature liquid launch vehicle developed by the Eighth Institute of Aerospace Science and Technology. The first and second stages are powered by dinitrogen tetroxide/uniform dimethylhydrazine propellant. The arrow is 41 meters long, with a diameter of 3.35 meters for both the first and second levels, a take-off mass of 250 tons, a take-off thrust of 302 tons, a low-Earth orbit (LEO) transport capacity of 4.0 tons, a 500-kilometer sun-synchronous orbit (SSO) transport capacity of 1.5 tons, and 700 Kilometer sun-synchronous orbit has a transport capacity of 1.3 tons. This rocket uses an extended fairing with a diameter of 3.35 meters, and the height of the entire rocket is increased by several meters. At present, the rocket’s effective working time at the launch site has been shortened to 10 days, making it one of the rocket models with the shortest working cycle at the domestic launch site.
It took 37 years for the Long March series rockets to achieve the first 100 launches, the second 100 launches in 7 and a half years, the third 100 launches in more than 4 years, and the fourth 100 launches in 2 years and 9 months. The fifth 100 times only took 2 years. From scratch, from small to large, from weak to strong, from the first time to the 500th time, China Aerospace has demonstrated China’s rocket speed to the world……
