In use since 1970, (first used to launch the Dong Fang Hong I satellite), the Long March series of rockets have had moderate success in launches. US companies used Long March rockets since the space-shuttle Challenger disaster of 1986, until 2000. Some European countries continue to use them for commercial launches.
