China's New Launch Center Prepares for Maiden Mission
 

China's fourth space launch center, the Wenchang Satellite Launch Center in south China's Hainan Province, is preparing for its maiden launch mission.

Components of a Long March-7 carrier rocket arrived at a port in Wenchang on May 14 and were transported to the center by road, according to space officials.

Assembling and testing will be conducted according to the mission's schedule, officials said.

The construction of the Wenchang satellite launch center started in 2009 and was completed in November 2014. With two launch pads, the Wenchang center is believed to be capable of launching China's new generation Long March-7 carrier rocket.
