Chinese aerospace startup Deep Blue Aerospace conducted a successful test with vertical takeoff and rocket landing

According to the Chinese State News Agency CGTN, Chinese aerospace startup Deep Blue Aerospace has successfully tested the vertical takeoff and landing of its reusable liquid-fuel rocket.

The undisclosed launch vehicle rose to a height of more than 1 km, then landed deviating from the target by only 0.5 m. The horizontal movement, judging by the video, was no more than a few tens of meters.

Jiangsu Deep Blue Aerospace Technology Co. is a private space company established in 2016 in Jiangsu Province on the shores of the Yellow Sea. The company is developing a reusable Nebula-1 medium-range launch vehicle that uses a 20-ton- thrust kerolox (kerosene + liquid oxygen) engine Leiting-20 .

In October 2021, the company has already made a jump to a height of 100 m and achieved a successful vertical landing in the testing phase of the prototype Nebula M1 VTVL. In January 2022, the company received funding of almost $31.5 million.
