Galactic Energy launch overview

Galactic Energy Space Technology Co. is a Chinese private space launch company founded in 2018. The company developed the Ceres-1 (Gushenxing-1) orbital rocket which is a four stage launch vehicle that is capable to put up to 350 kg into low Earth orbit. While the first three stages utilize solid rocket motors, the fourth stage uses a hypergolic propulsion system. The use of a liquid fourth stage allows for the payloads to be placed in more accurate orbits. In November 2020, Galactic Energy Space Technology Co. became the second private company (after i-Space) of China to successfully put a satellite in orbit. In addition to the Ceres-1 rocket, Galactic Energy Space Technology Co. is also developing the Pallas 1 rocket, which should be able to carry up to five tons of payload into low Earth orbit.
