Three Payloads in orbit

Today, the Zhuque-2 Yaosan-3 carrier rocket was launched from China's Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center, successfully delivering the Honghu satellite, Tianyi-33 satellite and Honghu-2 satellite to their intended destinations. orbit, the launch mission was a complete success. Zhuque-2 is the world's first liquid oxygen methane rocket developed by my country to successfully enter orbit. It can send a 1.5-ton spacecraft into a sun-synchronous orbit 500 kilometers from the earth. Subsequent improvements can increase the carrying capacity to 4 tons.

An article https://news.cnstock.com/industry,rdjj-202312-5161467.htm

says

 the Honghu satellite and Tianyi-33 satellite developed by Tianyi Research Institute, and the Honghu-2 satellite developed by Hongqing Technology

I assume the latter company is

Year's 200th orbital launch attempt and 192nd success, I think.  All unprecedented.

 - Ed Kyle

CelesTrak has Starlink 7-8 as 192, suggesting Zhuque-2 is 193:

I'm impressed at their relatively rapid cadence so far.  Or perhaps I'm just disappointed that none of the US CH4 rockets have reached orbit yet.   Probably both.

Anyway, good luck to LandSpace with their future flights and bigger rockets!

Thanks.  193 seems correct.  My number was off, so I pulled that post.  Looks like 201 or 202 launches so far rather than 200, with 8 or 9 failures rather than 8, making 193 successes.  Depends on whether that not-known-at-the-time failed Iranian Qaem 100 launch was real (March 4).
