Quote from: Andrew Jones
Chinese rocket firm Galactic Energy is aiming to launch its 2nd and 3rd Ceres-1 solid rockets from Jiuquan in September and December [2021] respectively. Galactic Energy became the 2nd Chinese private firm, after iSpace, to reach orbit in November 2020. https://mp.weixin.qq.com/s/SyNpfWCKXgyVJEIxHPynNw

Payload name listed on spaceflightfans.cn circa July 23.

Listing on spaceflightfans.cn changes launch date to "October" circa September 1.

Does anyone know, if the "Fangzhou-2F" payload is the same payload as the "Fangzhou-2", which was originally thought to have been on the Hyperbola launch failure?

I think they are different, Fangzhou-2F is upgraded version of Fangzhou-2.

On this page http://www.galactic-energy.cn/index.php/List/cid/7 it says

"NEXT MISSION
Ceres One (Remote 2)

The rocket has a diameter of 1.4m, a total length of 19m, a take-off mass of 30t, a LEO orbital carrying capacity of 400kg and a 700km SSO orbital carrying capacity of 270kg"

19m, does it mean that Ceres will use its big fairing, like on the website renders? I guess we'll have the answer in a few minutes...

Guys, sorry my ignorance, but I would like to corroborate this:

The rocket:
Gushenxing-1 is the same as saying Ceres-1. They are the same vehicle, right?

Thanks in advance!

It seems to be the patch only for the Jinzijing-1 03 mission. ZG6U-1D3 refers to the 3rd use of Zero-G ZG3U-1D platform and the big 6 to the 6th Zero-G mission.

At 12:12 on December 7, 2021, Beijing time, the Ceres-1 Yao-2 carrier rocket was successfully launched at the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center. The Tianjin University-1, Lize-1, Baoming, Golden Bauhinia 5 Five small satellites, including No. 3, Golden Bauhinia No. 1, and 03, were successfully sent into the scheduled orbit, and the launch mission was a complete success.

The reporter learned from Changsha Tianyi Space Science and Technology Research Institute Co., Ltd. (referred to as "Tianyi Research Institute") that one of the small satellites launched this time, "Baojian", will carry out multiple tests for the world's first in-orbit verification.

It is reported that the Baozhuan satellite is a 20 kilogram-level space science experiment satellite, which is mainly equipped with satellite intelligent service and computing platform payloads and GNSS occultation detection payloads.

Among them, the satellite intelligent service and computing platform load will carry out preliminary test verification for the computing and communication software platform in the "Sky Computing Constellation". It will be jointly developed by Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications, Huawei Cloud, China Mobile Research Institute, and Peking University, and will be carried out in orbit. On-board deployment of soft base stations and core network software, on-board deployment of next-generation core network software based on cognitive service architecture, on-board deployment of smart base based on KubeEdge+Sedna edge computing, on-board deployment of UPF software modules, and DOIP protocol star for digital networking On-orbit tests such as load verification will lay the technical foundation for building an on-orbit open and open source test platform for aerospace computing, and provide technical support for China’s construction of intelligent comprehensive digital infrastructure and next-generation core networks.

In order to support the test requirements, Tianyi Research Institute, based on the technology of previous mature satellite platforms, applied high-performance computing modules on the Baozhuan satellite for the first time to support the development of edge computing, intelligent processing in-orbit tests, and upgrade the satellite platform In-orbit reconfiguration and application expansion capabilities will help the Baozhuan satellite realize the world’s first on-board cloud native and edge computing capabilities, and will include soft base stations in orbit deployment, satellite digital networking test nodes, soft base stations and next-generation cores. The world’s first on-orbit verification of multiple experiments such as intra-satellite interconnection and interoperability of the network, and next-generation core network software based on a distributed cognitive service-oriented architecture.

At the same time, the Baojian satellite is also equipped with the GNSS occultation detection payload developed by Tianjin Yunyao Aerospace Technology Co., Ltd., and will complete the 0-60 km atmosphere and 100-800 km ionospheric detection work, providing global weather forecasts and earthquake forecasts. Raw data service.

Tianyi Research Institute will also use the remaining space of the satellite to carry out related carrying experiments such as Beihang University's comprehensive experimental load, Huaxin Technology integrated navigation module, and Xiaomi consumer camera. Through the above experiments, it will accumulate relevant data for universities and high-tech Such research conducted by technology companies provides technical support.

Lize One

The other satellite launched this time, "Lize-1", was jointly developed and manufactured by two private institutions, Zhongguancun Ruichen Satellite Innovation Application Research Institute and Beijing Yingshi Ruida Technology Co., Ltd., and jointly developed and manufactured by Tianyi Research Institute. Scientific experiment satellite. The satellite is equipped with a new type of satellite platform, mainly to carry out the flight test of the new type of satellite platform and the space environment adaptability verification, and lay the technical foundation for the subsequent constellation networking and constellation orbit deployment to realize the application of "small satellites, large capabilities".

The successful launch of the Lize-1 satellite marks a new breakthrough in the commercial aerospace field of Fengtai District, Beijing, and will accelerate the application of integrated and innovative technologies such as satellite remote sensing, big data ground monitoring, and artificial intelligence.

This is the 13th space mission of the Tianyi Research Institute. So far, the company has successfully sent 23 satellites into space.

Interesting, they use CATIA from Dassault as CAD software...

Also, I didn't see it come up on this page, but this flight was called "Keep On Moving". You can see it on a flag at the end of the video.

Object D started to rise orbit.

Object D = probably TY-23 (Baoyun) which is reportedly similar to TY-20 (Beihang Kongshi Weixing). This one tested the ThrustMe NPT30-​I2 engine. Both are precursors to the Tiansuan constellation. So I would expect a similar behavior.
