China's Kuaizhou-1A returned to flight Tuesday night, six months after a launch failure. The small rocket lifted off at 10:08 p.m. Eastern from the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center and successfully placed into orbit a satellite called Tianxing-1. The satellite is set to be used for experiments including "space environment detection," according to Chinese space authorities and media. The Kuaizhou-1A has flown 15 times since 2017, but this was the first launch since a failure in December 2021.
