Read more about it here: I-Space becomes China's first private firm to put satellite into orbit
An excerpt from CNN:
"I-Space, also known as Beijing Interstellar Glory Space Technology Ltd or StarCraft Glory, launched a rocket carrying two satellites on Thursday, according to Chinese state news agency Xinhua. The successful launch of the Hyperbola-1, or SQX-1 Y1, rocket from the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center, in northwest China's Gobi Desert, marked ""a new chapter in China's private commercial aerospace," the company said in a statement Thursday.
In the past, several Chinese companies have tried unsuccessfully to launch satellites into orbit: Landspace's 2018 attempt ended in failure, as did an attempt this March by OneSpace, which has only achieved suborbital flight.
"China is just bigger than everyone else -- they have more people, they have more engineers, they have more scientists," said Blaine Curcio, founder of Hong Kong-based space industry research firm Orbital Gateway Consulting, of China's space ambitions. "The implication is that, if they keep getting better at scale, they are probably going to be come the leading power at some point. It's just a matter of time."
