National & World News, China's 1st private rocket fails after launch

China in space

The company is set up in 2015 and aspires to become the first private Chinese company to launch a satellite.

The 62-foot tall, red-and-white ZQ-1 rocket lifted off from the national launching site on October 27 from the Jiuquan in north-central China around 4 pm local time.

Just like SpaceX though, the first attempt is not always a home run, as a recent failed satellite launch demonstrated.

In May, China launched "Chongqing Liangjiang Star" into space, the first rocket developed by Beijing-based private firm OneSpace Technology.

The company said that "cowling separation was normal but something abnormal happened after the second stage".

Rao was further directed to submit all the decisions, taken by him ever since his appointment to it in a sealed cover. By Friday morning, Asthana also filed a petition against the government order sending him on leave.

"We continue to believe that the creation of the carrier rockets - the right corporate strategy". "Through the whole flight of Zhuque 1, our team has obtained a great deal of experience which will contribute to the further research and development of Zhuque 1 and Zhuque 2", LandSpace's CEO Zhang Changwu said in an interview on CCTV.

It was created to send a Weila-1 satellite named "Future" into space for the country's state broadcaster, CCTV News. "We will carry on with our dream for vast space". A three-stage booster with a total length of 19 meters and a diameter of 1.35 meters has a launch thrust of 45 tons, a takeoff weight of ZQ-1 is 27 tons. It also said the failure was caused by a problem with the third stage.

Since coming to office in 2012, China's President Xi Jinping has made becoming a "space flight superpower" a priority for the government, which has a goal of sending a permanent manned space station into orbit by around 2022.

At least ten Chinese companies are making their own launch rockets.
