font size    

China has planned to develop the new-generation carrier rockets and, with its completion, the maximal carrying capacity of its "Long March" series is to increase to 25 tons from the current 9.5 tons, and this will help bolster significantly the nation's capability to explore and utilize outer space for peaceful purposes.

This was disclosed at a symposium the China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation (CASC) held in Beijing recently to mark the 100th launch of Long March rockets.

China has defined its short- and long-term goals for carrier rocket development. For the short-term goal, it will focus on the researches and development of the new-generation rockets to raise the capability of its rockets comprehensively and sharpen its competitive edge in the international launch services. As for the long-term goal, the country is expected to build a complete aerospace transport system and conduct researches into the new-concept space carriers.
