China puts final satellite for Beidou into orbit
China completed a space project decades in the making Tuesday putting the final satellite of its Beidou nevigation network into orbit.
Beidou -- the 'Big Dipper' in Chinese -- is an answer to the U.S.-owned GPS.
China began developing it in the 1990s a way to help wean the military off of U.S. tech.
Beijing has previously said the system will keep military communications secure and improve weapons targeting, especially in the Asia-Pacific region.
Beidou also has major civilian applications.
More than 70% of mobile phones in China were Beidou-enabled as of last year.
Millions of taxis and buses already use Beidou signals.
And Chinese state media have said Beidou services are in use in about 120 other countries.

china latest quantum computing & satellites are second to none. quantum's data signals are jam free. amazing work china !!
BeiDou 3 has 35 satellites, most of any global navigation. That allows precision to 1 millimeter. At that precision, a self driving car can be parked in your garage without wrecking anything. GPS has a non-civilian precision of 1 meter, that allows a cruise missile to go through a window.
Say goodbye to Google and Apple technology in Asia
China was third of the third world when it started developing Beidou in the 1990s. Now China is ranked high on the technological and innovation scale. All thanks to US which thinks that China will forever be part of the third world.
China wanted to join the international space station program, and was denied. So they started their own.
China is building roads and bridges, US is building wall and fences. China establishing satellite navigation, US is torn down out monuments.
It's always good to have choices .
US is no longer the only one who can track everyone through Google and Apples.
I'm here for the people using a made in China device to post negative things about made in China.
De-American supply chain is the world trend
Beidou's success is the consequence of China was ban by US and was kicked out Galileo program by the European.
