Reusing the fuel and oxidizer is a whole new thing to drive down cost in space business.  :o ??? ::)

I'm not sure I understand what reusable liquid oxygen and kerosene means. Can someone explain that to me please?

Whoop... I forgot some smileys:  ;) :D ;D

(It's just nonsense wording for "engines thare are reusable because they run on liquid fuel".)

Galactic Energy Prepares Ceres-1 Rocket for First Launch
The June launch is just the start of the company’s grand plans for future spaceflight
By Andrew Jones

Galactic Energy, a low-key private Chinese rocket firm, celebrated its second birthday in February. That’s early days for a launch company, and yet the company is set to make its first attempt to reach orbit this June.

The rocket is named Ceres-1, after the largest body in the asteroid belt, and will launch from China’s Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center in the Gobi Desert. With three solid fuel stages and a liquid propellant fourth stage, it will be able to lift 350 kilograms of payload to an altitude of 200 kilometers in low Earth orbit.

I may have missed it on this forum, but is this version of Ceres-1 new? I don't think I've seen it before...
