In a rare setback, China today failed to put one of the most advanced satellites into orbit resulting in the loss of the satellite, a media report said.

A Long March 4C rocket blasted off from the Taiyuan Satellite Launch Centre in Shanxi but, a website run by Chinese professional astronautic experts and space enthusiasts, said it failed to insert its payload, the Gaofen-10 satellite into its designated orbit, in what would be the first such failure since 2013.

There is no official announcement about it so far.
