China launched their second spacelab,Tiangong-2, on September 15th 2016
After the rare but recent rocket failure, I was extremely worried about this launch. I’m happy to report the launch was a success.
China have launched their second spacelab today, Tiangong-2, at 14:04 UTC on September 15th 2016. The Long March 2F rocket successfully took off from the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center in China. Tiangong-2 is an improvement on the Tiangong-1 spacelab and will be visited by the manned space flight Shenzhou 11 in October of this year.
