China has sent into space “the world’s first 6G experiment satellite,” local media reported on Friday.

The experimental 6G satellite will “verify the terahertz (THz) communication technology in space, a breakthrough in space communication,” according to state-affiliated daily Global Times.

The 6G satellite was among three Chinese satellites successfully launched into orbit, along with 10 commercial remote sensing satellites developed by Argentinian company Satellogic, the report said.

This was the 351st rocket of China’s indigenously developed Long March series.
