First flight in June! The spaceship "Liangxi" is hereRecently, the 2023 "China Aerospace Day" home event and the China Aerospace Conference opened at the Binhu International Convention and Exhibition Center in Hefei. As an important exhibitor of the exhibition, AZSPACE brought a real "returner spacecraft" to the air show, and also brought some scientific instruments for on-orbit testing.Ziwei Technology is a commercial small spacecraft and space exploration and return solution provider. Currently, it has the design and development capabilities of 14 scientific research instruments such as organ chip fluorescence microscopy imaging system, growth environment simulation system, and radiation particle detector. The on-orbit instruments and equipment have achieved continuous and safe operation for more than 700 days. The products of Ziwei Technology are both diversified and stable, which greatly enriches the options of commercial aerospace products.The "Liangxi" spacecraft is an aviation return vehicle, which focuses on small-scale space-to-earth round-trip cargo transportation, and can continue to return to the earth with a full load of 300kg cargo. The electronic components inside the returner can be reused, and can provide environmental data, radiation dose, force, heat, noise, impact, temperature, humidity and other research data, and can also be customized according to customer needs. The designed track-remaining module has been in orbit for about one year under control, and the return module's on-orbit running time can also be customized from a few days to dozens of days according to demand.
Was there any source relating the Liangxi launch with a June 22 launch date?

The SHuangquxian-1 Y7 will be launched in August this year.

Once again I'm arguing in favour of a better control over the proliferation of launch threads to avoid duplicates like this one, and I propose the use of the newly created Discussion thread for the Chinese Lunch Schedule to host information about orphaned payloads without a mated launch vehicle.
It is understood that Interstellar Glory plans to complete the launch mission of 2 solid models and 1 liquid model in 2023. Specifically, in terms of solids, the SQX-1 Y6 arrow entered the predetermined orbit with extremely high precision on April 7, achieving a "double perfection" of zero mass issues at the shooting range and a successful flight mission. At the same time, the SQX-1 Y7 arrow has now completed all pre-power-up work at the launch site and is scheduled to be launched in October. Subsequent solid models will be put into batch production and launched in batches of 6-10 rounds per year.
BTW regarding this one - last month iSpace did confirm their plan to launch Hyperbola-1 s/n Y7 in December 2023, so the plans is definitely there. The same slide also says they plan to assemble up to 4 rockets by the end of this year and then launch them according to customer needs.
