Long March 7A Launch Failed

According to Xinhua News Agency, Wenchang, Hainan, March 16th. At 21:34 on the 16th, China organized and implemented the first Long March VII-medium carrier launch mission at the Wenchang Space Launch Site of China. The rocket flight was abnormal and the launch mission failed. Follow-up will organize experts to investigate and analyze the cause of the failure.

Bystanders released this quick video on Weibo that shows the lift off but it’s hard to tell exactly what’s going on and where the failure occurred.

Long March 7A is 60.13-meter-long and has a liftoff mass of around 573 metric tons.

If successful, Long March 7A will become China’s main rocket for communications satellite missions.
