Long March 4C launch of Yaogan-22 (Xinhua) A Long March rocket placed a Chinese Earth imaging satellite into orbit on Monday. The Long March 4C lifted off from the Taiyuan Satellite Launch Center at 2:51 am EDT (0651 GMT, 2:51 pm Beijing time) Monday and placed the Yaogan-22 satellite into orbit. The satellite, according to official Chinese media, will be used for scientific experiments and civil applications, although many Western observers believe that it also, or instead, is used for military reconnaissance. China launched a similar satellite, Yaogan-21, last month.
