The main force for shooting these Chinese miracles
is the "Eye in the Sky" in space - Remote Sensing Satellite
developed by China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation Ltd.
In 1975, China successfully launched and recovered
its first returnable remote sensing satellite.
For the first time, Chinese people look at their motherland with their own "Eye in the Sky"
Later, China launched
a series of returnable remote sensing satellites
Obtained a batch of precious remote sensing images
Serving national economic development
In 1999, CBERS-01 satellite successfully launched for the first time.
Clear images can be sent back to Earth in Space without returning to Earth

In 2000, the first satellite of the CBERS-02 was successfully launched.
Subsequently, China launched a number of CBERS-01 and CBERS-02 satellites.
In 2012, CBERS-03 satellite also launched successfully.

Over the next few years
GF-2, GF-4, GF-3
Satellite 02/03/04 of GF-1, GF-5 and GF-6
And a series of satellites successively flew into space
The construction of high-resolution earth observation system in China
is proceeding at full speed

In addition to "CBERS" and "GF", "Eye in the Sky" of China's space also has commercial remote-sensing satellites "SuperView" series, "FY" series serve in the field of meteorology, and "HY" series serve in the field of Marine.
China's "Eye in the Sky" has more and more skills
the division of labor is more and more professional
the coverage is wider and wider
the working hours are getting longer and longer
and seeing things more and more clearly
