China launches new high-orbit satellite to boost its BeiDou global satellite navigation system
03 November 2018 Current Affairs: This is the first BeiDou-3 satellite in high orbit, nearly 36,000 km above the Earth. 
It will follow the Earth’s rotation, in a geostationary orbit, and will view the same point on Earth continuously.
