China tests experimental reusable spacecraft landed.
10:55

On September 6, 2020 at about between 00:20 and 01:55 UTC, Chinese experimental reusable spacecraft 重复使用试验航天器 (Chongfu Shiyong Shiyan Hangtian Qi, Reusable Test Spacecraft) returned to Earth after flying in orbit for two days. Chinese officials did not release any photos of the secret spacecraft, which was widely suspected by space observers inside and outside of China to be a winged spaceplane. The landing site unconfirmed, but evidence points to remote desert airbase. Chinese state media did not announce the location of the reusable test spacecraft’s landing, but experts said the object’s orbital track suggested it could have returned to Earth at a site in the Taklamakan Desert of northwestern China. An airbase near China’s Lop Nor nuclear test site could have been the mission’s landing site, according to Marco Langbroek and Jonathan McDowell, two widely-respected trackers of global space activity.
