China launched its first solar observation satellite.
20:41

On October 14, 2021 at 10:51 UTC the “Long March – 2D” (“Changzheng-2D”) rocket-carrier was launched from the Taiyuan Satellite Launch Center in north China's Shanxi Province. The rocket orbited the CHASE (Chinese H-Alpha Solar Explorer) satellite. It also has a Chinese name, Xihe, which is the name of the sun goddess in ancient Chinese mythology. The satellite is equipped with China's first solar telescope in space and will observe the deep-red H-Alpha line of the solar spectrum, enabling scientists to study solar flares. The rocket also carried two microsatellites from the Asia-Pacific Space Cooperation Organization and another eight micro satellites for commercial use.
