On November 19, 2018, at 23:40 UTC the “Long March –2D” (“Changzheng-2D”) rocket-carrier was launched from the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center in Jiuquan, Gansu Province, the northwest of China. The rocket orbited the “Shiyan-6” satellite as the main payload on the launch. The space vehicle will be used for conducting space environment exploration experiments. The four smaller secondary payloads aboard the rocket included the 45-kilogram “Jiading-1” (OKW-1) satellite; the “Tianzhi-1” satellite; the “Tianping 1A” and “Tianping 1B” satellites. This “Long March-2D” space start was China’s 34th space launch attempt of the year, further extending a record pace of activity for the country’s space program. All but one of China’s launch attempts have been successful.
