Wuhan University made a big announcement: The era of "playing" smart satellites for the whole people is not far awayAround May 15 this year, the radar satellite "Luojia-2" 01 developed by the Wuhan University team will be launched from the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center.
This source claims it's the launch of MUST-1A/B (a.k.a. Aomen Kexue-1 (澳门科学一号)) magnetosphere research satellites for the Macau University of Science and Technology (MUST). I am not familiar with this project (even though the university is but ~2 hours of driving from my place!) but I did found their official English website: https://mss.must.edu.mo/ and the planned orbit of 450 km, 41 deg. inclination LEO matches the drop zone above.
