Hiana’s enigmatic miniature spacecraft seems to have successfully launched a minimum of six objects into orbit during its most recent mission, which was its third.
The reusable spacecraft, which is conceptually similar to the X-37B of the United States Space Force, undoubtedly possesses military utility, albeit the precise characteristics of its payloads remain undisclosed.
The objects have been in Earth orbit since the Chinese spacecraft Shenlong (which translates to “Divine Dragon”) was launched from the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center on December 14.
Non-professional spacecraft detectors have validated the presence of these entities.
Operating aboard a conventional space launch rocket, the spacecraft is subsequently propelled into orbit by means of a secondary booster. Comparable to the X-37B, it descends to Earth in an unpowered state.
The evidence is compelling, although we cannot be certain that these enigmatic signals originate from objects launched by the Shenlong.
The transmissions originate from the objects themselves or from an object in close proximity to them, according to comprehensive signal analysis conducted by numerous satellite trackers.
No conspicuous indications of another object that could have been accountable for them are present.
In addition to correlating with the anticipated trajectories of the various objects, the transmissions adhere to the pattern of signals that Chinese spaceplane missions have previously emanated at the same distinct frequency.
