Beijing: China will have launched 20 rockets and 25 satellites by the end of 2011, an aerospace expert said Sunday.

"This year, we are supposed to launch 20 rockets and 25 satellites, a number that would put China in second place after Russia," Xinhua quoted Yuan Jiajun, deputy general manager of China Aerospace and Technology Corporation as saying.

It confirms, Yuan said, that China's space projects have entered a stage of high-intensity development and launching.

He, however, did not clarify how many satellites and rockets have been launched in the first 10 months of 2011.

In 2010, China launched 15 rockets to send 20 satellites into orbit, said Yuan.
