China launched a new remote-sensing satellite.
13:02
On May 10, 2012 at 07:06 UTC the "Chang Zheng-4B” (Long March-4B) rocket-carrier was launched from Taiyuan Satellite Launch Center in the northern province of Shanxi, China. The rocket orbited the "Yaogan-14” remote-sensing satellite and the "Tiantuo-1” satellite.
The "Yaogan-14” satellite will be used to conduct scientific experiments, carry out surveys on land resources, monitor crop yields and help with natural disaster-reduction and prevention.
The "Tiantuo-1” satellite, weighing only 9.3 kg, will be used for data reception for the satellite-based vessel Automatic Identification System, optical imaging and various space exploration experiments in orbit.
