Crash launch from Taiyuan.
09:44

On August 31, 2016 at 18:55 UTC (on September 1, 2016 at 02:55 Beijing time) the “Long March – 4C” (“Changzheng-4C”) rocket-carrier was launched from the Taiyuan Satellite Launch Center in north China's Shanxi Province. The rocket was to orbit the “Gaofen-10” Earth observation satellite. A U.S. Air Force spokesperson said Friday that the military has not detected any objects deployed in orbit by a Chinese Long March rocket launch Wednesday, but China’s official media outlets still have not acknowledged the apparent failure. Western experts suggest something went wrong with the upper stage of the “Long March 4C” rocket, and the “Gaofen-10” satellite did not attain enough speed to enter orbit.
