China on Wednesday for the first time launched a carrier rocket of national development "Lijian-1", with the help of which six satellites were put into orbit at once. This was reported by the Chinese Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation.
According to her, the launch was carried out at 12:12 Beijing time (07:12 Moscow time) from the Jiuquan cosmodrome in the north of the country.
As noted, the experimental spacecraft put into orbit will be used to observe the Earth's atmosphere and test electromagnetic devices.
Beijing is actively developing the national space program, developing meteorological, telecommunications and navigation satellites, as well as technologies for the exploration of the Moon. Chinese scientists are simultaneously carrying out a project to explore asteroids and Mars. The construction of the PRC space station is underway in orbit, which according to the plan should start working this year.
In 2021, China carried out 55 launches, setting a national record. According to this indicator, China has surpassed the United States, taking first place in the world.
