    JIUQUAN, Sept. 19 (Xinhua) -- Five new remote-sensing satellites were sent into planned orbit from the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center in northwest China's Gobi Desert Thursday.

    The five satellites were launched by a Long March-11 carrier rocket at 2:42 p.m. (Beijing Time).

    The satellites belong to a commercial remote-sensing satellite constellation project "Zhuhai-1," which will comprise 34 micro-nano satellites, including video, hyperspectral, and high-resolution optical satellites, as well as radar and infrared satellites.

    The carrier rocket was developed by the China Academy of Launch Vehicle Technology, and the satellites were produced by the Harbin Institute of Technology and operated by the Zhuhai Orbita Aerospace Science and Technology Co. Ltd.

    Thursday's launch was the 311th mission for the Long March series carrier rockets.

    The newly launched satellites comprise four hyperspectral satellites with 256 wave-bands and a coverage width of 150 km, and a video satellite with a resolution of 90 centimeters.

    The Zhuhai-1 hyperspectral satellites have the highest spatial resolution and the largest coverage width of their type in China.

    The data will be used for precise quantitative analysis of vegetation, water and crops, and will provide services for building smart cities, said Orbita, the largest private operator of hyperspectral satellites in orbit.

    The company aims to cooperate with government organizations and enterprises to expand the big data satellite services.

    Two new Beidou satellites in orbit from a launch yesterday, with a further two launches planes this year.

    Full article can be found at the above link but the gist is below:

    China successfully launched a new pair of navigation satellites on Sunday. The launch of Beidou-3M19 (Beidou-47) and Beidou-3M20 (Beidou-48) took place from the LC2 Launch Complex of the Xichang Satellite Launch Center, Sichuan province, using the Long March-3B/YZ-1 (Y65) – Chang Zheng-3B/YZ-1 – launch vehicle. Launch time was 21:10 UTC and it took four hours to complete the mission.

    China launched a new meteorological satellite on September 25 using a Long March-2D launch vehicle. Launch of the second Yunhai-1 satellite took place at 00:54 UTC from the LC43/94 Launch Complex of the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center. This was the fifth Chinese orbital launch in less than a month.

    a step towards Mars.....

    [​IMG]

    Mars-1 probe consist of an orbiter and a Mars rover. Because of the multitude of missions, the whole payload will be a record setting 5 tons. It will be the most challenging mission yet. Thanks to the foundation laid by the Chang'e lunar program, around 40% of the technology are common with the Mars mission. [​IMG]

    Mars-1 probe will make use of seven orbital transfer to travel nearly 300 million km to reach Mars. The signal will be seriously attenuated. Chinese deep space network including the 66 m radio antenna in Jiamusi station, 35 m radio antenna in Kashgar station within the country and other overseas site will provide spacecraft communication support to the Mars mission.
