China Satellite Launch

Here’s a replay. Fast forward to about 53 minutes into this video (most of it) to get to the launch.

Spectacular launch and interesting coverage. UPDATE: Reports are that this launch is said to be a failure as orbit was not achieved and everything came back down.

REPLAY COVERAGE: This is China’s Long March-5 Y2 heavy-lifting rocket set to launch from Wenchang, Hainan. The Long March-5 ranks among the most powerful carrier rockets in the world and this time around is sending China’s heaviest ever satellite, Shijian-18, into geostationary orbit.
