The 6th space flight of Cygnus completed.

On November 27, 2016 at 23:40 UTC the US "Cygnus” (CRS OA--5 “Alan Poindexter”) unmanned supply spacecraft was deorbited. The spacecraft re-entered the atmosphere and burned up over the South Pacific Ocean east of New Zealand. Packed with trash and other equipment tagged for disposal, an Orbital Sciences Corp. “Cygnus” spacecraft plunged back into the atmosphere over the uninhabited Pacific Ocean. It was the 6th flight of "Cygnus” to the ISS.

China launched telecommunications satellite.

On November 22, 2016 at 15:24 UTC the Chang Zheng-3C/G2 (Long March-3C/G2) rocket-carrier was launched from Xichang Cosmodrome, Sichuan province, southwestern China. The rocket orbited the “Tianlian 1-04” satellite. It will be the fourth satellite of the network of geostationary data relay satellites tasked with keeping mission control in steady contact with Shenzhou crew capsules and a planned space station. The network will also offer data relay services for the country’s medium- and low-Earth orbiting resources satellites, as well as measurement and control support for spacecraft launches. It was the 100th launched performed from Xichang Cosmodrome.
