OREANDA-NEWS The first reusable rocket was tested in China. The developers were faced with the task of creating an apparatus that could independently return from space. 

During the tests, the rocket climbed to a height of 300 meters, lasted on it for almost a minute and then landed on the launch pad. This is the third successful test. Last time, the device rose to a height of only 40 meters. Next year, it is planned to launch the rocket directly into space.

Last year, China became the world leader in the number of space launches. There were 39 of them.
