Hyperbola-1 launch fails
Posted: Sun, May 15, 2022, 9:23 AM ET (1323 GMT)
Chinese launch startup iSpace suffered its third consecutive launch failure Friday. The company's Hyperbola-1, a four-stage solid rocket, lifted off from the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center in the Gobi Desert at 3:09 am EDT (0709 GMT). However, the company provided few details after liftoff and state media confirmed the failure four hours later. The company successfully launched Hyperbola-1 in July 2019 but suffered failures in February and August of 2021. The company is also developing the much more complex Hyperbola-2, a larger, methane-liquid oxygen launcher with a reusable first stage.
