And the FAST radio telescope

explores the mysteries of the universe

One after another artificial miracle on Chinese soil

is magnificent and dazzling

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.

In 2013, the first satellite of China’s high-resolution Earth observation system,

GF-1, was successfully launched for the first time.

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


Providing high-quality services for

agriculture, forestry, animal husbandry, water conservancy, land and resources, urban planning, environmental protection, disaster monitoring and ecological construction

in China and other countries and regions,

and witnessing the new miracle that China has constantly created.
