Launch success!

""China-France Marine satellite launch success" October 29 8:43, our country in the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center with the Long March second C launch vehicle successfully launched the Sino-French marine satellite. China-France Ocean satellite is the first satellite developed by the two countries, will be mainly used for marine dynamic environment Monitoring, the first time to achieve synchronous observation of sea breeze and waves. The Chinese side is responsible for providing satellite platforms, sea breeze observation loads and emission measurements, and the French side is responsible for providing ocean wave observation loads and sharing satellite detection data.

Strange. Chinese sources gave a 00:43 UTC T-0, but CNES gave 00:41.🤔

Apparently 7 more satellites are on board, including the one from Belarus.

This launch used CZ-2C s/n Y22 (the smallest number left unused, which shows how long this project has been).
