On the morning of November 1, China successfully launched into space a new Earth remote sensing satellite of the Tianhui series, known as the “mapping satellite.” This was reported by Xinhua.

It was noted that a modified version of the Long March-6 launch vehicle with the Tianhui-5 satellite was launched from the Taiyuan Cosmodrome in Shanxi Province in northern China at 6:50 local time (0:50 Kiev time) and successfully launched the spacecraft to the desired orbit.

The satellite is planned to be used for geographic mapping, research of land resources, scientific experiments and other activities.

Reportedly, today’s launch is the 494th mission of the Long March series of launch vehicles. This liquid-fuel three-stage rocket with a maximum diameter of 3.4 m and a length of 29 m is capable of delivering a one-ton payload to low-Earth orbit.

China is actively developing its national space program, developing meteorological, telecommunications and navigation satellites, as well as technologies for lunar exploration and exploration. Chinese specialists are simultaneously implementing a project to study asteroids and Mars.

The construction of the Chinese space station Tiangong has been completed in Earth orbit, ready to join international cooperation in space exploration.

By 2022, China had completed 64 launches, breaking its own record and ranking second behind the United States.
