China sent a new astronomical satellite into space on Tuesday to observe mysterious transient phenomena in the universe comparable to the flickering of fireworks, to unveil the violent and little-known aspects of the cosmos. 

The satellite, named Einstein Probe (EP), uses a new X-ray detection technology inspired by the lobster eye. It was launched at 3:03 p.m. (Beijing Time) by a Long March-2C carrier rocket from the Xichang Satellite Launch Center in southwest China's Sichuan Province. 

The launch was the 506th mission for the Long March series carrier rockets.
