China sent a new Earth observation radar satellite to space atop a Long March-4C carrier rocket on Wednesday.

The rocket blasted off from the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center in northwest China and soon sent L-SAR 01A satellite into preset orbit.

The microwave remote sensing technology will be used to study geological environment and monitor landslides and earthquakes.
