A solid fuel space exploration rocket “SQX-1Z” was launched by Beijing’s iSpace Technology Co, a private commercial rocket company, at Jiuquan Satellite launch center deep within the wasteland of Gansu province. Jiuquan is the largest integrated rocket and satellite launch center and China’s first. It is also China’s only manned spacecraft launch site. Within 60 years, 145 satellites, eleven spacecrafts and two space laboratories were launched from here.
