In China, they explained why one of the first satellites of the Internet of things was called "Wuhan"


The Chinese Xinhua News Agency writes that China is preparing to launch a launch vehicle with two satellites on board. It is noted that we are talking about satellites of the so-called Internet of things.


According to the latest information, the rocket created by the Sanjiang Group company with the support of the China Aerospace Corporation will put satellites into orbit to form a new network.

As it turns out, one of the satellites for the Internet of Things (IoT) received the name Wuhan from the developers. The fact is that the development company is located in Hubei.

From Xinhua Material:

Despite being close to the epicenter of the pandemic, company employees worked to ensure the success of the mission. Two Xingyun-01 and 02 satellites were created as part of the Xingyun Engineering program, which envisages the creation of an extensive network of 80 satellites. One of the first satellites symbolically decided to name "Wuhan" (Wuhan).

Satellites, as noted, will provide the work of such industries in China as engineering, marine and forestry.

It is noted that the launch of the Wuhan satellite into orbit is regarded as "a symbol of China's victory over the pandemic."

From the comments of Chinese users:

May it become our banner of victory in space.

The launch of two satellites into orbit is planned to be completed before the end of April.

        It remains only to envy China and recall that we still launched the satellite, that is, the USSR.

      And the names of ALL are not required to know. no

      For a Russian person, in the broad sense of the word (in the manner of thought and spirit), it is important to know the name of the first satellite - "Satellite", well, it’s possible to be somewhat less aware of the existence of a series of Soviet-Russian satellitesSpace"...

    Did you work (Xingyun Satellite Co, a subsidiary of the company mentioned in the article)) during quarantine? It is somehow strange, given the almost martial law in Wuhan.

    The Chinese love symbolism and therefore I will not be surprised that they called the satellite: "Wuhan."
    When our pandemic will decline, it should be. What can we consider to be a symbol of victory over the virus: Kommunarka, Vector software (they are developing a vaccine for the virus)?

      It is unlikely that we will call satellites names associated with Covid-19. laughing

      As for the symbolism in space technology, by the way, at the end of April, the 25th, the next Progress MS-14 transport and cargo ship flies to the ISS, carries two and a half tons of cargo, water and fuel.



      The Soyuz-2.1a launch vehicle, which was called the Victory Rocket, will be marked with specialized symbols dedicated to the 75th anniversary of the Victory of the Soviet people in the Great Patriotic War of 1941-1945. - logo of the 75th anniversary of the Victory, images of the St. George ribbon and orders of the Patriotic War.

      it will look something like this:

    I advise the Chinese to put the satellites “pandemic”, “epidemic”, “coronovirus” into orbit fool fool They themselves “defeated” this same coronovirus, as well as common sense, calling the satellite the city from which the pandemic went on the planet! !! fool fool fool

    It is necessary to give the performance characteristics of satellites and rockets that launch satellites into space, and the name seems to have been chosen for the PR action. The Americans launched Tesla into orbit ................. it is terrifying to astronauts as needed

      There are not TTX satellites important, but the entire system that they display.

      As an important component of the CASIC commercial space project, the Xingyun program aims to transmit real-time data from various information nodes, sensors and other “smart” terminals on a global scale through a low-orbit narrow-band satellite communication system.

      Recently, the first satellite ground station, funded by Xingyun, was built at the Wuhan base of the space industry.

      These are small satellites. Large and not needed there.


      The rocket is also of the Electron type, by the way, also private. The most successful Chinese private rocket. Lucky 300kg. 5 launches last year and 1 in January of this.



      But this is a routine if that. In theory, it would be more interesting if they made an article on a new ship. It flies before the end of the month, already according to the schedule corrected by the coronovirus. So far without people.

        Apparently you mean the miracle of technology depicted below.
        Something he personally reminds me of. It was already something similar about a half hundred years ago with a hook back, only one and a half times harder.

        Well, now it’s all up to a complete trifle - just build “Changzheng-9” to get all this fun out of the cradle of mankind into interplanetary space. smile

        China is trying to compensate for the backwardness of its space technology on the principle that it would be like everyone else, by acquiring or simply copying at least outwardly certain technological solutions of other countries.

        The "Electron-type" rocket in the photo above is the Chinese implementation of our Start-1 missile launch program with a commercial payload. Start-1 missile launches are planned to be resumed from Vostochny in a couple of years, as the Topol ICBMs are removed from combat duty.

        The Great Voyage-5B rocket, which is supposed to deliver this spacecraft mock-up to orbit, is actually assembled "one by one" - the prototypes of its YF-100 engines mounted on its accelerators are Russian RD-120s that were previously produced in Ukraine. Oxygen-hydrogen first and second stages, with all the “coolness” of cryogenic technologies, give them a weak effect on the delivery of the payload to the orbit - a rocket in low Earth orbit can deliver only 25 tons, which is not much more than the same Proton-M "(~ 24 tons) using heptyl as fuel. And this is from a cosmodrome closer to the equator than Baikonur! At the same time, hydrogen on a rocket is a very expensive service pleasure, which of course will affect the withdrawal price.

        As for the spacecraft’s layout itself - the features of several spacecraft are visible in its appearance - there is our Oryol and the Spaceix Dragon, the Boeing Starliner, and even something from the Chelomeevsky TCS. lol



        A logical question arises - why would they now create such a ship on the principle of "I blinded you from what it was" if their future Tianhe orbital station (actually externally and in terms of functionality - a copy of the MIR station or the ISS Zvezda module) will be accepted by the crews on the rarely flying ships of Shenzhou today?



        It is commendable that China is trying to "be in the trend" in world cosmonautics, but the pragmatism of their actions towards the development of their manned program, chosen by them, raises some doubts. Although if you give a lot of money, then why not play these games. laughing

          The key difference.
          Launch and other Rokot are already existing ICBMs with suitable dates, which are being finalized for disposal by the launch method with a payload.

          ExSpace with the Kuaizhou program are specially designed rockets for space launches. Moreover, the family. If it weren’t for the virus, then 11 models would have flown to 1500kg useful.


          Although if you give a lot of money, then why not play these games. laughing


          Well, they have money and they invest it in all directions. Starting from the construction of the most advanced telescopes, ending with the issuance of money for the Chinese Voyager (the mission to deep space was approved last year and funding went).

          If we take our Roskosmos, then the main partner and customer went bankrupt. Without Oneweb, the launch program will go away, and Arians, too, and with the missiles laid down, will again have problems (for there have actually been many launches).

            The refinement of an existing missile, even if it has served its combat life, is much cheaper than creating a new one. Which is reflected in the payload output cost. For example, the services for launching the Start-1 rocket at the beginning of the zero were from $ 6mln to $ 8mln per kg, while Kuizhou today has ~ $ 9mln.

            So what? They paid for the production of Soyuz-2 rockets and satellite engines in advance. Roscosmos has almost completed its part of the contract. If Vanweb has delayed the deployment of its own orbital network, then this is only their problem.

            Until the end of the year, we have 3 launches from Kourou for programs with Arianspace, except for launches with Vanweb devices. As soon as the quarantine in the MCC ends and fly.
