China launches new rocket

The new colonial movement: The Chinese Academy of Science today successfully completed the first launch of Lijian-1, a new four stage solid fueled rocket, placing six satellites into orbit.

The Chinese state press announcement is here. I am using the name of the rocket from this source.

The rocket is an upgrade of a “road-mobile” ICBM, and can place two tons into orbit, making it the largest solid-fueled rocket in China’s arsenal of rockets. It launched from a pad built especially for it at China’s interior Jiuquan spaceport, which means it dumped its first, second, and maybe its third stages on Chinese territory.

The leaders in the 2022 launch race:

33 SpaceX
25 China
9 Russia
5 Rocket Lab
4 ULA

American private enterprise still leads China 46 to 25, and the entire globe combined 46 to 41.

Conscious Choice cover

Now available in hardback and paperback as well as ebook!

 

From the press release: In this ground-breaking new history of early America, historian Robert Zimmerman not only exposes the lie behind The New York Times 1619 Project that falsely claims slavery is central to the history of the United States, he also provides profound lessons about the nature of human societies, lessons important for Americans today as well as for all future settlers on Mars and elsewhere in space.

 
Conscious Choice: The origins of slavery in America and why it matters today and for our future in outer space, is a riveting page-turning story that documents how slavery slowly became pervasive in the southern British colonies of North America, colonies founded by a people and culture that not only did not allow slavery but in every way were hostile to the practice.  
Conscious Choice does more however. In telling the tragic history of the Virginia colony and the rise of slavery there, Zimmerman lays out the proper path for creating healthy societies in places like the Moon and Mars.

 

“Zimmerman’s ground-breaking history provides every future generation the basic framework for establishing new societies on other worlds. We would be wise to heed what he says.” —Robert Zubrin, founder of founder of the Mars Society.

 

All editions are available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and all book vendors, with the ebook priced at $5.99 before discount. The ebook can also be purchased direct from my ebook publisher, ebookit, in which case you don't support the big tech companies and I get a bigger cut much sooner.

 

Autographed printed copies are also available at discount directly from me (hardback $24.95; paperback $14.95; Shipping cost for either: $5.00). Just email me at zimmerman @ nasw dot org.

    I seem to remember several jokes about the DF Series Road Mobile Missiles…..
    Their “Fast Wind” Series that included Carrier Killers and now What Mach 25 birds? (DF-41)

    It was the Nineties….

    Technology was transfered from American Company(s)….

    The Punch lines used…..

    “Democrat Fund Raisers”

    This site

    https://www.daohangpan.com/htm/35338.html

    confirms that “‘lijian-1’ is the ‘zhongke-1a’ (zk-1a) carrier rocket, which was developed by Beijing Zhongke Aerospace Exploration Technology Co., Ltd. and is the solid rocket with the largest carrying capacity in China at present.”

    May clear up any confusion about the name of the rocket..

  • Every time anyone other than SpaceX launches a rocket, it really is a new rocket: had to be built just for that launch, never to return.

    Now, where are the Green busybodies decrying the waste of resources this entails? The ‘Green’ rocket tech is well-demonstrated, why no outcry from the usual suspects?

    Rhetorical? Maybe. But not really.

    This thing is more worrisome than any LM-5 core. Hide in road traffic.
