OneSpace successfully launched the first Chinese private missile into space. OS-X took off from the site in the north-western part of the country. The purpose of the mission is to collect data for the state aviation company AVIC, reports CNN. OneSpace is often compared to SpaceX by Ilona Mask, at least in China.
“SpaceX was the first in the US, we became the first in China, ” commented the launch of OS-X chapter OneSpace. According to him, the rocket was fully developed and built in China, which makes it the first of its kind. However, local experts are skeptical about such statements.
In particular, the timing of the development of the rocket provokes surprise – the company OneSpace was founded in 2015. Three years to create a complex system – too short a time. In addition, the project was sent about $ 78 million, which is hardly a sufficient amount.
In OneSpace, these statements are treated with irony.
