E-Commerce Packages to Travel Intercontinental Distances in Less Than One Hour

A private Chinese commercial rocket developer, Beijing Sepoch Technology Co., is delving into the realm of reusable rocket technology for expedited delivery services through a collaborative research endeavor with Alibaba’s Taobao e-commerce platform.

The maiden trial for cargo retrieval from a rocket is scheduled for this year. If proven successful, this pioneering initiative has the potential to facilitate intercontinental delivery of e-commerce packages in less than an hour, leveraging the capabilities of the reusable Sepoch Hiker-1 orbital rocket, as shared by project stakeholders.

Taobao said on its WeChat account that “Many great endeavors , at first glance, seem laughableā€¯, denying the rocket package delivery plan is a publicity stunt.
According to the recent Zhongguancun Forum, China is catching up in commercial space. According to the exhibitors of the forum, the efforts of space commercialization will bring our life more possibilities.
