Watch: China’s next-generation carrier rocket on way to launch site

Long March-5 is China’s largest carrier rocket, with its main fuselage measuring five meters in diameter. It has also been dubbed an “ice rocket” because very low-temperature liquefied oxygen and hydrogen are used as its fuels. The Long March-5 carrier rocket departed on a convoy of ships from Tianjin today, heading to Wenchang in south China’s Hainan Province for launch later this year.
 
More than 200 new technologies have been adopted for Long March-5. All 200 are Chinese intellectual properties, showing the huge improvement in the capabilities of China’s space program.
