Galactic Energy

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Galactic Energy (Beijing) Space Technology Co., LTD.
FoundedFebruary 2018; 3 years ago (2018-02)
Founder刘百奇 夏东坤

Galactic Energy is a Chinese private space launch firm developing the Ceres-1 [1][2][3] and Pallas-1 orbital rockets.

Ceres-1 is a four-stage rocket, the first three stages use solid-propellant rocket motors and the final stage uses a hydrazine propulsion system. It is about 19 m (62 ft) tall and 1.4 m (4 ft 7 in) in diameter. It can deliver about 350 kg (770 lb) to low Earth orbit.[4]

The first launch of Ceres-1 took place at 7 November 2020, successfully placing the Tianqi 11 (also transcribed Tiange, also known as TQ 11, also known as Scorpio 1, COSPAR 2020-080A) satellite in orbit.[5] The satellite's mass was about 50 kg and its purpose was to function as an experimental satellite offering Internet of things (IoT) communications.[6]

Galactic Energy became the second private company of China to successfully put a satellite in orbit (after i-Space) and the fourth to attempt to do that.


Galactic Space is in competition with several other Chinese solid rocket startups, being LandSpace, LinkSpace, ExPace, i-Space, OneSpace, Deep Blue Aerospace.[7]
