China launches mysterious new spy satellite

China launched a mysterious spy satellite that will “monitor land, crop yield and natural disasters” but could also gather military intelligence, analysts think.

The Yaogan 33 (02) satellite lifted off atop China’s Long March 4C rocket from the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center in the Gobi Desert at 7:44 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 2, (2344 GMT, or 7:44 a.m. Beijing time on Sept. 3) in what was the east-Asia’s space power’s 35th successful launch this year.
