The launch of China’s latest heavy-lift carrier rocket, the Long March-5 Y2, was announced unsuccessful on Sunday evening.

An anomaly occurred during the flight of the rocket, which blasted off at 7:23 p.m. from Wenchang Space Launch Center in southern province of Hainan.

Further investigation will be carried out.

The Long March-5 made its maiden flight in November 2016 from Wenchang, sending its payload into preset orbit.
