I know someone personally, who works for USAF Space Command and who sits behind a wall of monitors all day long....and well, monitors "things"
Anyways, he told me yesterday, because we were discussing this very topic, that as of yesterday - Friday - China has NOT launched anything recently. He would know, as part of his job.
Now grant it, I can not provide any proof....but there are respected people here who know me, and can probably vouch me and my resource.
So, I guess you can take this for what its worth to you
With that said. Based on what I know, and am reading here. I do not believe they are up in space right now
