Default China launches new unmanned experimental spaceplane

Quote:
China launched a new experimental. reusable space vehicle on Thursday from the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center using a Long March 2F/T - Chang Zheng-2F/T - launch vehicle. Launch from the LC43/91/launch complex, under a veil of secrecy with no official launch photos or even a launch time disclosed.

Chinese media emitted a laconic report referring, that "the test spacecraft will be in orbit for a period of time before returning to the domestic scheduled landing site. During this period, it will carry out reusable technology verification as planned to provide technical support for the peaceful use of space."

According to the illustration in the article, the Chinese vehicle resembles the USAF's Boeing X-37B and will probably carry out the same type of mission, orbital reconnaissance and photography--a spy satellite.
