China launches six Yunhai-2 satellites for atmospheric environment research

China successfully sent six atmospheric environment research satellites and a test communication satellite into orbit. They were launched by a Long March-2D rocket from the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center in northwest China. The six Yunhai-2 satellites will be used to study atmospheric environment, monitor space environment, prevent and reduce disasters and conduct scientific experiments.

The test satellite, the first for the constellation Hongyan, meaning “swan goose” in Chinese, will be used to verify the function of mobile communications in low earth orbit. The constellation, designed to comprise hundreds of LEO satellites and a global data processing center, was developed by Aerospace Dongfanghong Development Ltd.
