I loved the view of the ascending vehicle with the four strap-ons and first stage core separated and falling away.

I am so glad to see that the Chinese government has allowed us to watch this launch live. So open!  They have taken a page from NASA's book.  I love it!  I hope this continues with future launches.

Why do they separate the boosters from the first stage if 1-2 sep is at the same time? To make sure there is no thrust imbalance? But then S1 does have 4 engines, too, 4 engines should rather help to level these.

Ditto. That's why I think the references to Soviet Politburo in this thread are somewhat unfair. The Soviets were never this open.

Congratulations China!  A rising tide lifts all boats.

Can you believe that at exactly 13:16 GMT (T-0) SpaceX tweeted "Are you excited about the future of spaceflight". Hilariously bad timing ;D

So far nothing on CNN or its website about the launch.
Strange?

Separation of the boosters takes place at T+155s and first stage separation takes place at T+159s
