I'm getting increasingly doubtful if China can launch 100 times in 2024 at current launch cadence. Stay tuned.

I have serious doubts if China is able to conduct 100 orbital launches in 2024 at current launch cadence.
Only one launch over the past two weeks. This is no good sign. Not sure about if the upcoming Shenzhou-18 mission disrupted everything. Anyway, stay tuned.

This is no good sign. Not sure if the launch cadence will pick up in coming weeks.

China conducted only four orbital launches in Apr 2024. Shenzhou-18 crewed mission and Chang'e 6 lunar sample return mission could be responsible for the unsatisfying launch cadence.

Q: Will Chinese launch cadence resume 10+ orbital launches in one calendar month?
A: Stay tuned.
