Long March-6 rocket 3

China launched Long-march 6 carrier rocket in Taiyuan this morning, sending twenty satellites into orbits 524 kilometers away from the Earth, which set a record in Asia.

Long-march 6 is 29.3 meters long, with a takeoff weight of 103 tons. China’s liquid oxygen/kerosene engine also finished its first flight test with the rocket, which is non-toxic non-polluting and a technical qualitative leap.
