Sometimes this happens

According to this Reuters release, the launch of a Chinese Long March 4B rocket ended not so well for a Brazilian/Chinese satellite.  The launch occurred yesterday, but it sounds like the rocket failed to get to the right altitude/orbit for the satellite payload.

It doesn’t sound like this will stop the aggressive pace of the Chinese space program, as the article also states China and Brazil have speeded up towards a next joint launch.
