Long March 7: New generation rocket prepares for maiden launch

The Chinese carrier rocket Long March 7 is being prepared for its maiden launch in southern China’s Hainan province. Officials at the Wenchang Satellite Launch Center said this 53-metre-tall, 600-ton rocket has completed most tests. The rocket’s debut flight will carry a scaled-down version of a new re-entry capsule for human spaceflight. The Long March 7 is expected to become the main carrier rocket for China’s space missions, replacing the current Long March 3B rocket.
