2 mins read

It was announced that China plans to make 100 launches in 2024 as part of its national space program.

In the book published by the China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation (CASC), the main contractor of the space program, plans for 2024 were announced.

The country, which will send more than 300 satellites and vehicles into space in 100 launches this year, aims to significantly increase the number of annual launches.

70 of the launches will be carried out by CASC with Long March rockets, the main carrier system of the space program, and the rest will be carried out by private companies with rockets they have developed themselves.

China had made 67 launches in 2023, 17 of which were carried out by private companies.

Two manned expeditions and two cargo expeditions will be made this year to the Tiengong Space Station established by China in Earth orbit.

The “Chang’ı 6” exploration vehicle, which aims to collect rock and soil samples from the dark side of the Moon, and the “Çüeçiao 2” transmission satellite, which will communicate with the far side of the Moon, will be launched in the first half of 2024.

The Variable Space Object Monitoring Satellite (SVOM), developed jointly by China and France, and the China Seismo-Electromagnetic Satellite (CSES), developed jointly by China and Italy, will also be sent into space this year.

CASC aims to make the first launches of two new models of Long March rockets, Long March 6C and Long March 12.

On the other hand, a new launch center is planned to be put into service on Haynan Island in the south of the country, which will be used for launches by private companies.
