The US elections have taken over the headlines right now, but China is out putting on a show for the world launching the world's first 6G satellite into space to test out the next-gen technology.
China launched the experimental satellite that had next-gen 6G technology on-board the Long March 6 carrier rocket, firing it up into orbit from the Taiyuan Satellite Launch Center in China's northern Shanxi Province on Friday. China launched the 6G part alongside 12 other satellites.
The "UESTC" satellite aka Star Era-12 was named after the University of Electronic Science and Technology of China, with the new 6G satellite being used to test the performance of 6G frequency band in space.
- Crazy fact: 6G technology offers 100x the speed of 5G... and 5G is up to 10x the speed of 4G. 6G is a truly next-gen leap.
