China launched another pair of Beidou satellites Sunday. A Long March 3B rocket lifted off from the Xichang Satellite Launch Center at 1:07 p.m. Eastern Sunday and placed two satellites into medium Earth orbits. Chinese media said that these satellites complete the "basic" constellation of Beidou navigation satellites, allowing service for partner countries in its "Belt and Road" initiative to begin by the end of the year and bringing the system one step closer to full global service.
