A Chinese private company sent a suborbital rocket into space at 1:00 p.m. Wednesday from the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center in northwest China.
 
周三下午1点钟,中国一家民营企业在酒泉卫星发射中心将一颗亚轨道火箭送入太空。
 
 
The SQX-1Z was developed by iSpace, a Beijing-based private rocket developer, founded in 2016 with a research center in Xi'an, Shaanxi Province.
 
The rocket carried three CubeSats, miniature satellites, for two Chinese commercial companies. After entering its preset orbit, the rocket will release two satellites for testing, and the other satellite will be parachuted to Earth, according to a statement by the company.
 
The SQX-1Z rocket will provide minisatellite and constellation1 launch services for clients, said Yao Bowen, spokesperson for the company.
 
A suborbital rocket usually has a flight path of less than one complete orbit of the Earth. It can reach an altitude of more than 100 km above sea level and then falls back to Earth. Suborbital rockets or satellites are primarily used for scientific experiments.
 
The 9.5-meter-long rocket can reach a maximum altitude of 175 kilometers and has a top speed of 1,600 meters per second. It can travel for 450 seconds.
 
This was the company's second launch this year. In April, it launched a suborbital rocket, the Hyperbola-1S, from a launch center in the southern province of Hainan.
 
The company also plans to launch a carrier rocket in 2019.
