China launched the latest satellite to create the Beidou global navigation system. This was reported by representatives of the Corporation for Aerospace Science and Technology (CASC). Changzheng-3B booster rocket was launched into space on Tuesday. The launch took place at 9:43 local time at the Sichan Cosmodrome in Sichuan Province in southwestern China.

The launched satellite will become part of Beidou. After correcting the orbit and testing, it will work in conjunction with other devices.

Recall that China considers Beidou a competitor for the American GPS system and the Russian GLONASS. In 2020, she will begin to provide navigation services around the world.

China put into orbit a satellite to monitor the oceans.
