The would-be capacity will be equivalent to that of mainstream carrier rockets now in use around the world.The rocket will serve the final chapter of Chinas three-step-- orbiting, landing and returning-- lunar program and the building of manned space stations.The Long March rocket family has completed more than 200 missions since 1970, when a Long March-1 rocket sent Chinas first satellite, Dong Fang Hong 1, or "the East is Red", into Earth orbit.(For the latest China news, Please follow Peoples Daily on Twitter and Facebook)(Editor:Tian Li,Bianji)Add your comment/* * * CONFIGURATION VARIABLES: EDIT BEFORE PASTING INTO YOUR WEBPAGE * * */var;var disqus_shortname=;var disqus_identifier=;if ({disqus_shortname=enpeople;disqus_identifier = 8926049;}/* * * DONT EDIT BELOW THIS LINE * * */(function() {var dsq = document.createElement(script); dsq.type = text/javascript; dsq.async = true;dsq.src = // + disqus_shortname +;(document.getElementsByTagName(head)[0] || document.getElementsByTagName(body)[0]).appendChild(dsq);})();Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus.We RecommendChina-made special vehicles in exhibition
