China plans to launch the second Beidou satellite, the Chinese version of Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS), into the orbit on the upcoming Wednesday.

This was announced by a spokesman of the Xichang Space Launch Center, in southwest China's Sichuan Province, Sunday.

Both the rocket, a Long March-3III carrier, and the satellite are in sound conditions and ready for the planned projection, said the official.
