China Launches Its Most Powerful Heavy-Lift Rocket


China on Thursday successfully launched its most powerful heavy-lift rocket which is expected to be used in future space programmes like building a permanent space station and for Moon and Mars missions as the Communist giant seeks to become a major space power.

The newly developed rocket called Long March-5 was launched from the coastal Wenchang Space Launch Centre in southern Hainan Province. The rocket blasted off at around 8:43 PM local time.

An official of the mission declared the launch a success about 40 minutes later, state-run Xinhua news agency reported.

Orbital Rocket Blasts Off On Space Station Cargo Run


An unmanned Antares rocket owned by Orbital ATK Inc blasted off from Virginia on Monday with a cargo ship for the International Space Station, marking the booster's return to flight two years after a previous version exploded during liftoff.

The 14-story-tall rocket, powered by a pair of new Russian-made engines, blasted off from Wallops Island, Virginia, at 7:45 p.m. EDT (2340 GMT), a NASA TV broadcast showed. Launch was delayed five minutes to resolve a minor glitch with the rocket, according to NASA commentator Brandi Dean.
