  • This chapter reports the recent progress on the space astronomy missions of China, including the following missions: currently operating in orbit, e.g., DAMPE, Insight-HXMT, GECAM, PolarLight, GRID and Lobster-eye X-ray Satellite; approved and under development for launch in the next a couple of years, e.g., SVOM and EP; planned experiments to be onboard China’s Space Station in the next several years, e.g., CSST, HERD, POLAR-2, DIXE and LyRIC; candidate missions that have passed the first round of review of Strategy Priority Program on space science (III) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, e.g., eXTP, DAMPE-2, Earth 2.0, DSL and CHES.


  • *Since June 1st 2022, GECAM-B has resumed full operation, as its power supply system has self-recovered
