    China's spaceport project for sea launches

    "China makes progress on spaceport project for sea launches"

    China is making progress with a spaceport to facilitate sea-based launch activity and development of rockets, satellites and related applications.

    The China Aerospace Science and Technology Corp. (CASC), the country’s main space contractor, is developing the spaceport in Haiyang City on the coast of the eastern province of Shandong.

    The ‘Eastern aerospace port’ will add to China’s four established space launch centers and be a base for sea launches of light-lift solid rockets.

    A recent inspection (Chinese) by Wang Xiaojun, head of China Academy of Launch Vehicle Technology (CALT), under CASC, reported ‘substantial progress’ in the construction and planning of the port.
