China launches new remote sensing satellite

China on Sunday said it had launched the Long March 2D carrier rocket, putting a remote sensing satellite in space.

The rocket blasted off at 7:45 a.m. (Beijing time) from the Xichang Satellite Launch Center in southwestern Sichuan province and sent the Yaogan-42 02 satellite into a preset orbit.

The latest launch marks the 17th rocket launch of 2024, and the 517th flight overall for the Long March family of rockets, the nation’s fleet of workhorse launch vehicles.

The Long March 2D rocket, propelled by liquid propellant and having a takeoff thrust of 300 metric tons, is capable of launching a 1.3-ton spacecraft into a sun-synchronous orbit at an altitude of about 700 kilometers (435 miles).
