China’s private satellite-carrying rocket fails after launch

The solid-fueled, three-stage Zhuque 1 rocket launched from the Jiuquan space center in the Gobi Desert at 4 a.m. EDT on October 27.

The 62 foot tall (19 metre) Zhuque-1 carrier rocket, which cost a private company around $14million (£10million) to develop, failed to reach earth's orbit.

The three-stage rocket, Zhuque-1, was developed by Beijing-based Landspace.

The launch took place at Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center in China's northwestern Gansu Province Saturday.

Another Beijing-based private firm, OneSpace Technology, successfully launched a smaller rocket, the "Chongqing Liangjiang Star", into space in May.

The rocket was supposed to deliver the satellite to Wei Lai of China Central television.

It's also unclear what LandSpace will be doing in the wake of satellite launch attempt, but private companies are said to be playing a larger role in China's ambition to have a world-class space program.

"We still believe that building rockets is the right strategy for the company". Zhuque-1, or ZQ-1, is the first commercially-built Chinese three-stage rocket. "We will carry on with our dream for vast space". "But will is even more important when you have everything", LandSpace's founder Zhang Changwu wrote.

President Xi Jingping said China could become a "space flight superpower" with a manned space station in orbit by 2022. A Chinese mining company recently tested a missile it had built on its own.

While Zhuque didn't put the microsatellite into orbit, the Chinese start-up said the launch wasn't a total failure.
