China launches its largest ever space rocket

The biggest rocket China has ever launched blasted off on November 3 from the Wenchang launch center on Hainan Island.

The Long March 5 rocket will deliver into orbit an experimental satellite designed to test electric-propulsion technology. It was the second rocket they've launched from Wenchang, and considerably bigger than the previous Long March-7.

The 57 metre Long March-5 is powered by 10 liquid-fueled engines generating more than two million pounds of thrust.

Watch the launch below.
