SJ-8 is no longer on orbit
SJ-8 is classified as:


NORAD ID: 29385
Int'l Code: 2006-035A
Launch date: September 9, 2006
Source: People's Republic of China (PRC)
Launch site: Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center, China (JSC)
Decay date: 2006-11-01

The satellite Shi Jian 8 is carrying some 2,000 seed of nine different types which will be exposed to microgravity and cosmic rays during the flight. On return, the seeds will be germinated and grown to see if any genetic mutations resulting from exposure to the space environment are beneficial. Earlier experiments with rice and wheat seeds have produced crops with increased yields.
