Chongfu Shiyong Shiyan Hangtian Qi (CSSHQ) is the first Chinese reusable test spacecraft.
It was launched in September 2020 on a CZ-2F/T.
The test spacecraft will return to its intended domestic landing site after an unspecified period in orbit, during which technical validation of the reusable spacecraft and its systems will be carried out. Reportedly the spacecraft is a winged space plane. No details are known.
It has returned to earth after 2 days in orbit with a landing near Lop Nor. It left behind an object in orbit, which may be some kind of service module, a solar array or a satellite payload.
