 China Space Station is on schedule! Open to the world for the first time


The United States is unwilling to show weakness. On March 2, the Dragon-2 manned spacecraft, jointly developed by SpaceX and NASA, carried out a (unmanned) test flight and successfully docked with the International Space Station the following day. After eight years, the United States has taken the first step to return to the international manned space arena.

Just two days later, a blockbuster message from the Manned Space Engineering Office during the two sessions overwhelmed the US.

China Space Station mission will start this year!

At the same time, the China Manned Space Engineering Office has also given a timetable for the steady progress of the mission:

In June, the China Manned Space Engineering Office will work with the United Nations Department for Outer Space to complete the selection of cooperative projects in space science applications, and at the same time, to implement special pre-research projects such as the new generation of manned launch vehicles and manned spacecraft.

In July, Tiangong 2 was derailed under control.

At the end of the year, the core module of the space station and the Long March 5B carrier rocket for launching missions were trained in launching sites and prepared for the first flight mission.

Around 2020, Chinas space station core module is scheduled to launch.

In 2022, the station is expected to be completed and put into operation.

Moreover, on the same day, Wu Weiren, chief designer of Chinas lunar exploration project, revealed that Change-5 will be launched within the year and Mars exploration will be launched next year.

In the face of Chinas achievements in space exploration, the American media commented earlier that unlike the United States, which mainly focuses on space exploration and scientific research, Chinas goal is to create long-term wealth through the use of space economy. Chinas space goals are different from the Apollo erasflag-planting, footprints. Chinas space program is an integral part of the countrys economic recovery and development goals.

The timetable comes out and the countdown begins.

According to CCTV news, Chinas manned space engineering office said Thursday that Chinas space flight mission is about to begin. The construction of space station is the last step in the three-step development strategy of Chinas manned space project. After the completion of the space station, it will be in orbit for more than ten years.

This year is the key year for the construction of Chinas space station. A series of missions are about to begin. The China Manned Space Engineering Office has given a timetable for these missions to advance steadily.

In June this year, the China Manned Space Engineering Office and the United Nations Office for Outer Space will jointly complete the selection of cooperative projects in space science applications and start the implementation of several projects. While carrying out the task of space station development and construction, the whole line of the project is also grasping the implementation of special pre-research projects such as the new generation of manned launch vehicles and new generation of manned spacecraft, carrying out research and demonstration of manned lunar exploration scheme, and tackling key technologies to lay a foundation for manned exploration and development of earth and moon space.

What will the China Space Station do when it is completed?

Experts said that the overall configuration of the space station is three sections, consisting of a core module and two experimental modules, each of which is 20 tons, and the overall configuration is T-shaped symmetry. The core module is used for the unified control and management of the space station assembly, providing astronauts with living and working places. The experimental module is used to support space science experiments, space applications and space technology experiments. Reserving new cabin interface for space station can expand cabin space and support large-scale experiment of external storage.

In the future, China Space Station will carry out large-scale space science research and application in 8 research directions, including space life science and biotechnology, and more than 30 research topics. The Chinese Space Station is equipped with scientific laboratory cabinets with international standard interfaces in the core module and the two experimental modules, which are used to carry out various kinds of space science experiments. In addition, a 2-metre space astronomical telescope will be developed for large-scale, multi-color imaging and seamless wide-spectrum sky cruise, providing observational data for the frontiers of astronomy and physical science.

Among this years tasks, one is to complete the selection of cooperative projects in space science applications jointly with the United Nations Department for Outer Space. This is the first time in Chinas space history that the space station has been opened for international cooperation.

In May last year, the Permanent Mission of China to Vienna and the United Nations Department for Outer Space jointly held a public announcement ceremony on opportunities for international cooperation on the Chinese Space Station in Vienna, officially opened international cooperation on the Chinese Space Station, and warmly invited all countries in the world to participate actively in cooperation in carrying out in-flight and in-flight experiments using the future Chinese Space Station. It is worth noting that this is the first time in history that such projects have been opened to all UN Member States. This time, Chinas space station has opened the door to cooperation, which also reflects the confidence of big powers and the role of big powers.

After 25 years of hard work, China has the ability to build a space station.

Not long ago, the Spring Festival movie Bangfu and Wandering the Earth made the audience become addicted to space science fiction. But in reality, what are the forces of space science and technology in China?

Zhang Bainan, chief designer of Manned Space General Department of the Fifth Research Institute of China Aerospace Science and Technology Group Co., Ltd., said on April 4 that in 2018, China Aerospace Science and Technology Group launched 37 times, ranking first in the world. But at the same time, China is still blank in many projects, such as the space station is still in the state of construction, manned landing on the moon has not yet been achieved.

So now we can only say that we are a big space power, not a powerful country, but we are confident that we will build a strong space power in the near future.

As Chinas first astronaut, Yang Liwei, currently Deputy Director of Chinas Manned Space Engineering Office, also said on the 3rd that after 25 years of efforts, China has broken through and mastered three basic technologies: space-to-Earth return, astronautscabin exit, rendezvous and docking, and has the ability to build a space station. In 2019, the core module of the China Space Station will be transferred from the initial prototype development stage to the normal prototype stage, and the other modules will be developed and manufactured in the initial prototype stage.

Chinas space program is not flag-planting

At the beginning of this year, the Change-4 probe successfully landed on the back of the moon to achieve a breakthrough in human history.

Yesterday, the second session of the 13th CPPCC National Committee opened in Beijing. Before the meeting, Wu Weiren, member of the CPPCC National Committee and chief designer of Chinas lunar exploration project, told the media at the Committee Passage that Chinas lunar exploration project was well under way, and the Yutu was in good condition and moving northwest of the landing site.

At the end of this year, China plans to launch Change-5 to sample and return to the moon, possibly becoming the third country after the United States and Russia to return to Earth. Next year, China will launch a Mars Rover to achieve Mars orbiting, landing and patrol exploration.

On the same day, the China Satellite Navigation System Administration Office also received good news. This year, Beidou will continue to build a high-density global network, planning to launch 8 to 10 Beidou navigation satellites, planning to complete all MEO satellite launches, further improve the layout, improve service performance and user experience.

It is worth mentioning that on March 2, the Dragon-2 manned spacecraft jointly developed by the United States Space Exploration Corporation (SpaceX) and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) carried out a (unmanned) test flight and successfully docked with the International Space Station the following day. This means that after eight years, the United States has taken the first step to return to the international manned space arena.

As early as February 28, the American Journal of Diplomatic Scholars published an article to analyze the differences between China and the United States in the field of space exploration.

The article points out that the current global space economy is 350 billion US dollars and is expected to reach 2.7 trillion US dollars by 2040. In addition, there is huge economic potential for future space mining. Unlike the United States, which focuses on space exploration and scientific research, Chinas goal is to create long-term wealth through space economy.
