The Long March-5 Y3 carrier rocket arrived at Qinglan Port in Wenchang in South China’s Hainan Province on Sunday. After assembly and testing, the rocket will be launched at the Wenchang Satellite Launch Center, according to China National Space Administration.

The Long March-5 is a centerpiece of the country’s long-term space ambitions, allowing China to dispatch satellites to space that are twice as heavy as payloads that can fit on earlier Long March rockets.

The fleet carrying the rocket left Tianjin Port on October 22 and sailed for 5 days, withstanding all types of complicated conditions. Later, the rocket parts will be sent separately via road transportation to the launch center for the upcoming scheduled mission.
