Posted: Sun, Jun 9, 2019, 9:44 AM ET (1344 GMT)
China successfully launched a small rocket from a ship in the Yellow Sea Wednesday. A Long March 11 rocket launched from the ship at 12:06 am EDT (0406 GMT, 12:06 pm Beijing time) and placed a total of seven small satellites into orbit. The launch was intended to demonstrate the ability of the solid-propellant rocket to launch at sea, allowing it to place satellites into lower inclination orbits than possible from sites within China.
