China has made breakthroughs in researching spaceflight dynamics, a top scientist said Wednesday.

Progress has been made in spaceflight trajectory computation and analysis, orbital tracking, telemetry and command technologies for deep space probes and spaceflight planning and control, said Tang Geshi, director of the Science and Technology of Aerospace Flight Dynamics Laboratory.

The lab is a key research station established in March with over 50 researchers.

The lab recently passed a pilot assessment, marking the establishment of a technologically advanced spaceflight research system, according to a statement from the lab.
