Good job. And now we wait for report on where debris fell and if anybody got injured. Learn rocket reusability, China - it's a great way to not endanger your citizens every time you launch something.

Or learn to drop the stages elsewhere.

Chinese companies are good copycats, SpaceX.

It is referred to as a suborbital launch but the payloads are referred to as satilites, seems a bit odd

Huh. I didn't realise that anyone had video capable surveillance satellites, I always thought that that was a Hollywood myth.

Nice video!

Only five seconds between the engines start-up and the sound arrival. I don't know the local conditions at the time, but they were standing around 1.7 km only from the pad; lucky guys.

Hey, are they launching a Kuaizhou-1A?

I don't think they've done that since last year!

(These are moments I wished they had webcasts)

Any electronic camera is an video camera, the rest is software basically as long that you can handle the data stream out of it, this is trivial and has been for decades, main issue is bandwidth.

Wait, is this the first non-government launch into orbit of the year or the first time ever by China?
