Posted: Fri, Dec 10, 2021, 12:36 PM ET (1736 GMT)
Galactic Energy launched its second Ceres-1 rocket late Monday, becoming the first Chinese private firm to reach orbit twice. The four-stage Ceres-1 solid rocket lifted off from the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center at 11:13 pm EST (0413 GMT Tuesday), successfully placing five satellites into a roughly 500-kilometer sun-synchronous orbit. Galactic Energy performed its first orbital launch in November 2020, making it at the time only the second Chinese private venture to reach orbit. Galactic Energy says it plans five launches in 2022.
