On Saturday Chinese authorities retrieved the 19th recoverable sci-tech experimental satellite, which was launched on August 29 from the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center in Gansu Province.

This most recent recoverable satellite is more advanced than its predecessors, featuring higher controlling precision and the ability to carry out considerably more complicated calculating processes. The satellite, which is launched on top of a Long March 2C carrier rocket, is used mainly for space scientific research, land surveying, mapping and other scientific experiments.

China launched its first recoverable satellite in 1975.
