"Yangwang Constellation" Space Telescope

The world's first commercial optical\ultraviolet space telescope constellation. Launched successfully in June 2021, Yangwang-1 is China's first visible/UV light space telescope, and is currently the only large-field ultraviolet space probe in orbit around the world. After repeated evaluation of the performance of Yangwang-1, it was awarded the official space telescope number by the International Astronomical Union (IAU) Minor Planet Center. Yangwang-1 is the only space telescope in China that can perform astronomical observation, asteroid observation, and space debris observation etc.. At the same time, it has both night-time remote sensing monitoring capabilities, and the spatial resolution of the nighttime light satellite images obtained has reached less than 30 meters, which provides compelling nighttime remote sensing data for worldwide demand.
