The new colonial movement: China has announced that the second launch of its Long March 5 rocket was a failure.

They have provided no other details. Since this is the rocket that they plan to use to launch their space station modules as well as launch this year’s unmanned lunar mission, this failure is probably going to impact those schedules.
