Commercial Chinese launch fails
Posted: Sat, Mar 30, 2019, 9:51 AM ET (1351 GMT)
The first orbital launch by Chinese company OneSpace has been confirmed to be a failure. The launch of the OS-M1 rocket from the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center at 5:32 am EDT (0932 GMT) Wednesday, carrying a cubesat from Chinese company ZeroG Lab, failed when the second stage appeared to lose control after stage separation, according to video from the launch site. OneSpace is still investigating the cause of the failure. Had the launch been successful, OneSpace would have been the first private company in China to place a payload in orbit. Beijing-based Interstellar Glory, also known as iSpace, is currently preparing for its first orbital launch attempt, which could come as soon as next month from Jiuquan.
