Suc­cess­ful Launch

Beijing Review - - This Week Society -

China sends twin satel­lites into space with a sin­gle car­rier rocket, adding two more mem­bers to its do­mes­tic BeiDou Nav­i­ga­tion Satel­lite Sys­tem (BDS), in Xichang, south­west China’s Sichuan Prov­ince, on March 30.

Named af­ter the Chi­nese term for the Big Dip­per, the BeiDou sys­tem started pro­vid­ing ser­vices over China in 2000 and will serve coun­tries along the Belt and Road by the end of 2018.
