China launched an experimental reusable spacecraft into orbit on Friday (Sept. 4). A report from Chinese state media said a Long March 2F rocket sent the spacecraft into orbit from the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center in the Gobi Desert, but it provided no information about the exact launch time or what technologies the spacecraft will test.

“An apparent higher-than-usual level of security surrounding the mission also prevented bystander images appearing on social media."
