Launch Roundup: NASA’s PACE mission, Chinese art satellites, and more Starlink missions
February is set to get off to a busy start with two Chinese launches. A Chinese multistage solid rocket, Jielong-3, will launch from a barge in coastal waters off Yangjiang in the South China Sea on Feb. 2 at around 03:00 UTC. The payload consists of at least five satellites for a rideshare mission, including an interactive art installation venture, led by artists Xu Bing and Beijing Wanhu Creation.
