SJ-20 (SHIJIAN-20) is China's heaviest and most advanced satellite (as of Jan 2020). The orbiter, placed on a geosynchronous orbit, is the first verification satellite for DFH-5 satellite platform, China's new generation of large geosynchronous orbit satellite platform. The SHIJIAN-20 satellite was launched into space by the third Long March-5 rocket, China's largest carrier rocket on Dec. 27, 2019. It has carried out orbit experiments for a series of key technologies. SJ-20 has the largest solar wings among all China's satellites, with the total wingspan 10 meters wider than that of a Boeing 737 aircraft. The solar wings has unfolded twice, and the increased solar wing area will supply the satellite with abundant power.
