Storyline


China successfully launched a Long March-11 carrier rocket from a mobile launch platform in the Yellow Sea off Shandong Province at 12:06 on Wednesday, sending two technology experiment satellites and five commercial satellites into space.

It is China's first space launch from a sea-based platform and the 306th mission of the Long March carrier rocket series.

The rocket was named "CZ-11 WEY" based on an agreement between the China Academy of Launch Vehicle Technology, China Space Foundation and a Chinese automobile producer.

Launching a carrier rocket from an ocean-based platform has many advantages over a land launch.

The closer to the equator a rocket launch can get, the greater the speed boost it will receive. It also reduces the amount of energy required to get into space and means that less fuel is required.

The launch site is more flexible and falling rocket remains pose less of a danger. This also allows for the use of civilian ships to launch rockets, which would lower launch costs and give it a commercial edge.

The seaborne launch technology will meet the growing launch demand of low inclination satellites and help China provide launch services for countries participating in the Belt and Road Initiative, reported experts.

The two satellites, developed by China Academy of Space Technology, are expected to step up all-weather monitoring of ocean wind fields and improve typhoon monitoring and accuracy of the weather forecast in China.

Among the five commercial satellites, the two satellites, developed by China Electronics Technology Group Corporation, are China's first small satellite system based on Ka-band transmission system.

The Long March-11, with a length of 20.8 meters and a takeoff weight of about 57.6 tonnes, is the only rocket using solid propellants among China's new generation carrier rockets. It is mainly used to carry small satellites and can take multiple satellites into orbit at the same time.
