The private company OneSpace Technology successfully tested the first commercial OS-X rocket in China, reports RIA News Post Central Television of China.


First commercial. China has tested the OS-X rocket


This is the first launch of a rocket, fully developed and manufactured by a private enterprise in China.

It is reported that "the launch took place on Thursday in 7.33 (2.33) local time on a test site in the north-west of the country, the flight along a ballistic trajectory was 306 seconds."

The report states that "from the stage of design work until the launch itself, the company needed only one year."

According to the report, OS-X Chongqing Liangjiang Star is capable of delivering payload into orbit 800 altitudes in kilometers above the Earth. The length of the rocket 9 meters.

According to Chinese media, the company, founded in 2015, is currently building its research and production base in Chongqing.

The base will include a research center, a smart assembly center, a test center, and other necessary facilities. The head of the company promised to build and test up to 30-i missiles a year.

    Maybe we should already think about supporting private space exploration?

      Under state control, we have a mess with civilian missile launches, what will happen if it’s hard to even give it up by gravity and private ownership, probably they will fall not into the Pacific Ocean, but directly on our heads in cities crying

        The report states that "from the stage of design work until the launch itself, the company needed only one year."

        For such terms, it is practically impossible to create something like this from scratch, something was most likely being developed here. And so, private space is only beautiful words, etc., without the help of the state in any way.

      The trick is that with state support, they will again launch lured goats into the garden, who can generously roll them away.
      For private space exploration, as well as for any business, the state requires only one thing - do not interfere.
      By the way, in the next three to five years, we will see a unique experiment comparing the effectiveness of public and private domestic(!) astronautics. Energia did complete a deal to sow the deeply unprofitable Sea Launch platform to the owner of Siberia Airlines. If the latter can squeeze the benefits out of it, then it will be possible to compose fables about the effectiveness of state managers.

        Well, they’ll squeeze out the benefits for themselves, get billions of loans and go bankrupt, giving creditors this unnecessary stuff.

      do you see the picture? This is clearly a military missile. In addition, it is, as far as I know, solid fuel. And so far it can fly only to the suborbital orbit, that is, it cannot bring anything into space.

      In civil aviation, the quality of airliners should be
      high level - each accident - 150-200 corpses. Right?
      But the entire civil aviation market is private. And thousands
      liners fly every day. By the way, reusable belay
      The same should be in space: many rockets - private and reusable.

    The dubious prospect of solid rockets, mini-satellites and nothing more. True and lower price, the main cost of fuel.

      Apparently, therefore, modestly silent about load capacity.
      capable of delivering payload into orbit at an altitude of 800 kilometers

      But how much is that load? request

        Up to 100 kg.
        Quite a niche for private business. Like, for example, cubsats ...

        I agree, the most important characteristics are not indicated. Judging by the appearance - a light rocket, a maximum of small private satellites on the GSO to display. By the way, what kind of booster block will it be screwed to?

          Not enough 800 km for the GSO. Before it will be about 35000 km.

            You, comrade, almost confused me laughing It will reach the IEO (at which the upper stage is being separated), and then the question is just about the lifting capacity, which my question was, is there enough thrust for the RB with a payload or only low Earth orbit telecommunication satellites can.

      1 I wonder what kind of overload there (the feeling, from the video, that they launched an air defense missile, and not a launch vehicle for civilian needs)
      2 and which satellite will withstand them ...

    I noticed that there are practically no publications on the launches of I. Mask and SpaceX, which is a forbidden topic. On other resources, publishing news about this Chinese craft (really, nothing serious) draw a parallel with I. Mask, but here they did not say a word. I wonder why?

        Uh ??? What kind of parallel universe is this?

        Mask has it all. Bangladeshi satellite on BlockNUMX deduced. 5% complete flight program on a new rocket.

        On May 19, Iridium flies with Vandenberg SLC-4E. And 24 may SES-12. He only manages to put rockets on the table. Already 9 and until the end of May 11 launches. The Russian Federation has 7 in total and 7 will remain until the end of May (next launch on June 6).

          Block 5 was designed for 10 consecutive flights every 48 hours. Then - a pause for service. And the next cycle of 10 flights. And so - up to 10 times. 100 flights and cancellation.
          The rocket will be profitable even at a price of 20 million per launch.

    ours are more likely to suffocate than allow private traders to be able to launch rockets. We have a couple of private firms that develop rockets to launch small and ultra-small satellites weighing a hundred kilograms. It takes only $ 10 million to bring the missile to launch readiness, but there are none ...

    Can. This is not about some super-duper super-powerful missiles, but about missiles for outputting small loads. The Chinese are coping with this, but we suck our paw and wait for no one knows what

    So right away and do as you wrote? Sea Launch is a way to make money. The only bottleneck for the time being is the absence of a Zenit missile. It is possible that the creation of Sankara will solve this problem.

      Old 26 - contradict yourself - that is, we have a company, then they don’t have money. But the Chinese have it. So something is wrong at the conservatory? Maybe before starting a start-up you need to take care of a financial pillow? Vaughn "Cosmocourse" preoccupied and slowly moving in the chosen direction.
