Chinese reusable spacecraft leaves unknown object in orbit

A Chinese reusable experimental spacecraft, while in orbit, launched an unknown object into space, details of which are missing. Specialized media write about this.


According to SpaceNews, the unknown object was taken under the control of the United States space surveillance network, designated NORAD ID 46395. It is believed that this device was launched by a Chinese secret spacecraft before two full revolutions around the Earth and deorbiting.

It is noted that China has not released any data on this object and does not comment on information about its discovery.

The launch of the reusable spacecraft took place last Friday, September 4, from the Chinese Jiuquan Cosmodrome in the Gansu province in the northwest of the country, in the Gobi Desert. The device was launched into orbit using the Changzheng-2F (Long March 2F) launch vehicle. The goals of the launch of the spacecraft in the China Corporation of Space Science and Technology (CASC) called the testing of technologies for repeated applications in space flights and the "peaceful exploration" of outer space.

The ship returned to Earth on September 6, landing at the planned point. Flight details were not disclosed.

    China's space program is moving forward. This is certainly true. Even if its successes are now far from the achievements of the USSR / USA, then this is temporary.

    It's time for us to accelerate too, otherwise we'll lag behind. Moreover, the Chinese will catch up with us on the basis of our own technologies, and will also take the best from the Americans. So they can overtake ...

    Their reusable ship, judging by some photos (relevance is not guaranteed), is not a spaceplane, but looks like a satellite or our Union. That is, for the sake of economy, it is exactly that? Is he piloted and is now sent in automatic mode? We should study the issue.

      These are different ships. The one that flew right now was their X37-type nano-shuttle, and the atmospheric BOR for him was probably Shenlong. In any case, reliable photos of this nanoshatl 0. Only fan-made 3D models.


      What's in the photo is their new manned ship. In which they will fly to their new Tianhe space station.

      The first pilot of the prototype on May 5, 2020. Probably there will be another flight without people and at 21 a flight with people.

    If taken for the truth bold words:

    According to the SpaceNews website, the unknown object was taken under control of the United States space surveillance network, designated NORAD ID 46395. It is assumed that this unit was released by a Chinese secret spacecraft before two full revolutions around the Earth and deorbiting.

    This is what happens ... Now in space, everyone can do what they want ?! am

    In my understanding, ANY satellite launched from the Earth into space is controlled by us and the amerikos "from a to z" good back in the 1970s there were all the technologies for this ... and controlled ... but now what - degradation at the world level has occurred ?! belay recourse

        That is, you are now declaring in plain text that the PRC "brought it where it is necessary, as much as it needs" so that both the United States and the Russian Federation would remain silent? laughing wassat lol

    Apparently, the Americans were very interested in this shuttle. Traced everything.
    The landing site, however, was calculated later, not in real time.

    well what can you say? Well done! He flew, returned, threw something into orbit, the full mission is completed!

          Space photos of Iranian space rockets appear instantly, photos of Russian aircraft at airbases in Libya and Syria too. There are no photos of the landing of the Chinese spacecraft from any famous space private spotters. Only a photo and video of a rocket launch and a stage falling near the village.

            I think this is because the PRC, unlike us, does not care at all when it comes to maintaining secrecy. They only show what cannot be hidden, and also simply keep silent about what they do not want to report. We are always trying to prove to the collective West that we are not like that, we are open and good, and we are not doing anything bad. Although lately we also finally began to behave closer to the requirements of the time, but still with an incomprehensible embarrassment to me!

              What has the PRC to do with it? It is not their companions who are filming. There are many private companies that have their own remote sensing satellites and shoot for money. As an example that was already here:



              However, the same photo of the Chinese cosmodrome with a landed ship is not on the network.

                Are they filming at night too? Not removed, it means there was no opportunity, or it was not given! I think that the accident, or the failed landing, could be filmed from the ground.

                  You can also shoot at night, oddly enough laughing does it sound to you, and how do you represent it your "did not give"? A lot of Chinese stretched a tarp over the strip? lol

                    Sorry, but you are not as smart as you are trying to present it to me. Photographing of the earth's surface in the visible and infrared ranges is possible only during daylight hours and in the absence of clouds. It is these "little things" that can be used to prevent shooting - calculated landing in the dark, or in cloudy weather. Don't give thanks for the information, don't give thanks! hi

    "Slowly" are moving their space program !!! So they fly to Mars, we learn only from the Americans. I would like to hear our trampoline, only PR and promises for 30-40 years.
