BEIJING — The first attempt by a private Chinese company to send a rocket into space has failed.

Beijing-based Landspace said late Saturday that the first and second stage of its ZQ-1 rocket worked normally but something went wrong with the final of the three-stage rocket.

It was the first three-stage rocket built by a private company in China.

Of course it failed! It was made in China!!! :biggrin-new:

Darn it. All their hopes 'n dreams...

The bumpkins probably haven't figured-out segmented propulsion-dynamics yet. A little something called 'nose weight'. The fuel-segments want to lift themselves, so you've gotta transfer lift-momentum to the upper portions of the rocket.

Embarrassing. From the Nation that invented fireworks.
