China’s Long March carrier rockets have set a national record of 103 consecutive successful launches since May 5, 2020. The streak was achieved in just 27 months, which demonstrates the accelerated launch pace since 2020 and constantly improving Long March reliability.

The launch of a Long March-2D carrier rocket carrying a remote sensing satellite group on August 20 was the 62nd successful launch for the series in the three decades since its debut. The Long March rockets are based on independent innovation. Chinese engineers have made various breakthroughs to improve both the frequency and quality of China’s homegrown rockets.
