China launches a satellite for Venezuela

VRSS-1 is Venezuela's first remote sensing satellite.

BEIJING (PTI): China on Saturday successfully launched a remote sensing satellite, the "VRSS-1," for Venezuela.

The delivery marks China's first in-orbit delivery of a remote sensing satellite to an international customer, the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center, which launched the satellite from China's Gobi desert said.

In 2008 China launched Venezuela's first satellite -- the Venesat-1, or "Simon Bolivar" -- to carry communications facilities.

Venesat-1, which was a jointly built telecommunication satellite, made Venezuela the fourth Latin American country to own a satellite after Mexico, Brazil and Argentina.
