Continuing its space buildup, China on Tuesday sent at least nine satellites into space, official media said
The indigenously-built Long March-11 carrier rocket was used for the launch, a first from the sea.
Last week, China sent an observation satellite, Gaofen-11 02, into the orbit through a Long March-4B carrier rocket.
It plans to inaugurate its large modular space station this year, which will be placed into low orbit.
It will be roughly one-fifth of the mass of the International Space Station and about the size of the decommissioned Russian Mir space station.
