 Chinas recyclable rocket will break the monopoly of the United States: development of Long March eight


At the China Aerospace conference held in April 24th, the report of academician Long Lehao announced the relevant situation of Chinas new recoverable rockets. The launch vehicle was developed on the basis of the Long March eight, and the whole vertical backstepping recovery method was adopted. This method of recovery is similar to the Falcon series carrier rocket, which can realize the reuse of rocket components and effectively reduce costs. After the adoption of recovery technology, the launch price of the Long March eight rocket will be further reduced, which will help to compete for the international market share of commercial satellite launches. It is estimated that the Long March eight rocket with recovery technology will be able to fly first in 2020. After its service, the technology of recyclable rocket will no longer be monopolized by the United States. The source of this article: surging news editor: Yang Qiang _NN6027
