China has launched a new meteorological satellite, Xinhua reported.
The launch was made from the Taiyuan Satellite Launch Center in northern China's Shanxi Province.
The launch center said the Fengyun-3 (FY-3) satellite is equipped with a dozen advanced detectors and is capable of carrying out a three-dimensional, all-weather, multi-spectrum quantitative detection to acquire data from the ground surface, the ocean and space.
China is to launch 12 satellites of the FY-3 series and six of the FY-4 series by 2020.

News that Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin would resign in order to run for the mayoral election in September came as quite a shock. Sobyanin’s political potential is fairly dubious, not to mention his approval ratings. He has not finished many of the projects he initiated and the electoral effect from these projects is expected to come a bit later than September 2013. Sobyanin’s opponents were not entirely unprepared for this blitzkrieg.
