Jiuquan (XNA) Aug 11, 2023

China on Thursday launched the CERES-1 Y7 carrier rocket from the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center in northwest China, sending seven satellites into a planned orbit.

The commercial rocket blasted off at 12:03 p.m. (Beijing Time) from the launch site, carrying seven satellites, including the Xiguang-1 01 satellite.

Xiguang-1 01, equipped with hyperspectral, infrared, and panchromatic cameras, will be mainly used for earth observation, serving natural resources, agriculture, forestry, smart city, and disaster reduction.

Also aboard the rocket are an artificial intelligence-enabled remote sensing satellite called WonderJourney-1A, and Starpool I-1B, which is designed for remote sensing, satellite-to-satellite and satellite-to-ground communication, and navigation augmentation.

The launch was the 7th flight mission using the CERES-1 rocket series.
