Another China smallsat launcher first flight in late May, as published today @ spaceflightfans.cn:

http://www.spaceflightfans.cn/event/china-beijing-interstellar-glory-space-technology-hyperbola-1-rocket-first-launch-flight?instance_id=2509

Next try for the first orbital launch of a private Chinese rocket, after failures of Zhuque-1 and OS-M.

- Built by iSpace: http://www.i-space.com.cn/
- Four stages, three solid and one liquid
- 150 kg to 700 km SSO
- Payload "一箭七星,这个再掉了损失惨重啊", which Google translates to "One arrow and seven stars, this is a big loss." Wtf?

The header at spaceflightfans.cn always shows the last day of the month (or quarter or whatever), if no exact date is known. Looks like their software does not allow to enter a month without day. In the text below, it says

[2019年05月03日】新闻显示5月下旬发射,一箭七星,这个再掉了损失惨重啊。

which Google translates as
Quote
[May 03, 2019] The news showed that it was launched in late May, with one arrow and seven stars. This lost a lot.

(Translation changed from "this is a big loss" to "this lost a lot.") Agree that seven stars probably means 7 satellites.

Launch in June.

Source?
Using the transliterated Chinese name it creates this on the schedule:
June - Shuang Quxian-1 - JSLC - (Seven satellites)

Separate launch for Late May:
Late May - JL-1 Jielong-1 - JSLC (?) - ??

Thankyou to the person who sent me the source. It is in fact the link given in the first post! I was too dumb to work that out. :-) That link actually refers to this 3 May article by SFF.

http://www.spaceflightfans.cn/55097.html

It says (translating into English)

"Hoga revealed that star glory independent research and development of the four-class solid into orbit launch vehicle will carry 7 loads, in late May this year into the national launch site ready for launch."

So, this source says late May. However, the link to the main page now shows June.

spaceflightfans "has confirmed that the mission will be conducted on the morning of June 10, 2019. The station guessed that it will be launched around 10 am." - which would be 02:00 UTC

Looks like Qiancheng-01 will be on this launch...

Nope. See that "SD-1" on the right? It will be on SD-1's first flight, which is in queue after Hyperbola-1.

BTW according to someone at CASIC, after these two flights they will have two KZ-1A flights from the mobile pad at Jiuquan, then the CZ-11 flight with Zhuhai-1, then CASIC will use those pads for the rest of the year.

The hyperbolic Changan Auchan carrier rocket carries two satellites from Aerospace Science and Engineering Space Engineering Development Co., Ltd. and Beijing Institute of Technology, and is equipped with three final sub-loads such as CCTV Future Nova Verification Load, Watermelon Maker Load and Star Age-6 Load. And two commercial counterweights of Changan Auchan Auto and Jinliufu Yitan.

双曲线长安欧尚号运载火箭携带了航天科工空间工程发展有限公司和北京理工大学的两颗卫星,搭载了央视未来新星验证载荷、西瓜创客载荷及星时代-6载荷等三个末子级载荷,以及长安欧尚汽车和金六福一坛好酒的两个商业配重。
