China’s second manned space flight will top next year’s agenda for the China Aerospace Science and Technology group.
Acording to a report by CCTV, the spacecraft will orbit the Earth for five days with two astronauts onboard. And several other satellites, including the Asia-Pacific 6, are also scheduled for launch in the coming year.
This year, 8 Long March-2 F carrier rockets have blasted off, sending 8 satellites into orbit around the Earth. Among them, the Experimental Satellite II is now in orbit, testing new high-precision technology and monitoring territorial resources and the geological environment.
