The takeoff mass of the rocket is about 849 tonnes and can carry payloads that weigh over 22 tonnes, to low-Earth orbit, which is the largest low-Earth orbit carrying capacity among China's rockets, as per the report. As per the report, China Manned Space Agency (CMSA), said that the maiden flight inaugurated the "third step" of China's manned space programme, which is to construct a space station.

China said Tuesday it successfully launched a new spacecraft at 6pm, in a test of its ambitions to operate a permanent space station and send astronauts to the Moon.

About 488 seconds later, the experimental manned spacecraft with no crew, together with the test version of the cargo return capsule, separated with the rocket and entered the planned orbit, according to CMSA.

China aims to complete a multi-module, inhabited space station around 2022.

The United States, so far, is the only country to have successfully sent humans to the Moon. "It is a prelude to the third step of China's manned space program".

Tesla earlier this month said that it delivered 88,400 vehicles in the quarter, beating analyst expectations by almost 9,000 cars. Part of the reason for Tesla's production ramp up is better efficiencies at its assembly plant in California, the company said.

China's new large carrier rocket Long March-5B made its maiden flight on Tuesday, sending the trial version of China's new-generation manned spaceship and a cargo return capsule for test into space.

The US no longer has its own spaceship since retiring the space shuttle in 2011 and relies on Russian Federation to send astronauts to the International Space Station.

"It depends how ambitious the Chinese space programme is at the moment but missions beyond the Moon will be possible", said Carter Palmer, space systems analyst with US-based Forecast International consultancy.

This heavy-lift rocket is one of the most prestigious projects of China in accordance with their plan to explore deep space. Its future mission is to integrate the three modules of our space station, including the core module, experimental module I, and experimental module II. But, since the performance of the Long March 5-B is impressive on its first try, it is expected for China to continue the country's scheduled Mars Mission called Tianwen in the upcoming summer season.

So far, a total of 16 major missions of China's manned space program have been accomplished, with a success rate of 100 percent.
