Chinese manned spacecraft prepared for launch

27

The Shenzhou-10 ship and the Changzheng-2F launch vehicle were delivered to the rocket launch pad. In mid-June, a manned spacecraft will be launched from the territory of the PRC, with a crew of two men and one woman.


Chinese media reported that the spaceport in the northwestern province of Gansu is fully ready to launch. Today a spacecraft and a launch vehicle were brought to the launch pad.

Three specially trained astronauts will have to carry out testing of the technology of docking of the manned apparatus "Shenzhou-10" with the module "Tyangun-1" in orbit. The mission in space is designed for 12 days.

The manned flight program in China is implemented in three phases. The first stage was the launch of the Shenzhou-5 orbiter in 2003, as well as the launch of the Shenzhou-2005 in 6. The second stage is being implemented at the present time and includes the development of the technology of docking of devices in orbit. At the final stage, which is scheduled for 2020, a space station will be created and launched into orbit.

The program on space exploration in China started 8 on October 1956, when the fifth Ministry of Defense Academy, which was involved in missile development, was created in the country. In 1964, China sent a rocket with two mice on board into space. In April, China's 1970 put the first artificial satellite, Dunfanhun-1, into orbit.

      China is actively converting its economic power into military and political influence, including through the development of space technology. They are still only at the beginning of the journey, but a trend has been outlined, China is trying to become a powerful space power, but so far it is still far away and whether it works out is not clear ...

        China sent its first artificial satellite into space in 1970. Until December 23, 2008, 115 launches were made, 103 of which were fully successful and four were partially successful.

    It’s hard for them to master space. A friend from RKK Energia told me, the Chinese came to them on a business visit, everything is as it fits photo-video shooting of everything and everything. And here the theme means this: At one of the stands of the Union it was necessary to check something, insert a cylinder with O2, and as usual, what the hell is the difference, we took the cylinder, charged it into the apparatus for checking, and the CO2 is written on the cylinder, who cares? no one pays any attention to such trifles - it’s quite a working option.
    And then several especially zealous Chinese wandered over to this stand and let's take pictures of it so much that superstars are jealous, of course not attracted special attention by the carbon dioxide cylinder in the descent vehicle! It was clear from the eyes that the eastern mentality did not catch up with the purpose of this pribluda. Well, there was one intelligent engineer with glasses who shyly tried to explain, they say, "don't pay attention." But most of all, the acquaintance was pleased with the reaction of the FSB officer, who carefully took the engineer aside and, having learned all the details and the "significance" of the CO2 inscription, asked the engineer to stand aside, and blessed the joyful Chinese for video-photography from himself, adding some kind of absurdity, why is this cylinder here exactly with CO2

      Do not underestimate China. take a look at how they progressed in the automotive industry. and they will master it. and if we are only proud of the past, we will catch up. in the past usa, in the future - china

      It is impossible to underestimate ... but we must remember where they got their SC "Shengzhou" ... the prototype of our UNION! At the same time, we did not pass the technical documentation to them ... but it turned out very simply - in the era when we "rolled into space" friends from socialist countries, an agreement with the PRC was signed ... their candidates arrived, and with them "personal chefs, shoemakers , tailors and other servants ".. 5 or 6 months have passed and the entire composition of candidates has been replaced. According to the Chinese side, they turned out to be so stupid ... so stupid that there are no words ... new candidates arrived with their "personal attendants" ... time passed and this group turned out to be well, "just awful, how stupid" and they returned home .. .the third or fourth group was not allowed to replace the second (third) ... as it turned out that the personal massage therapist from the first group on returning home suddenly grew wiser and turned out to be one of the leading designers ... and it turned out to be the same for the rest " service staff "... and the former candidates, who were" very stupid ", became leaders and instructors for the preparation of the Chinese cosmonaut corps ... That is, they intercepted ideas, but created themselves ... This is far from given to many!

        Yes, in China, the thing that pisses me off most of all is that they are all stupidly copying, consider their Union as a pepelats, though they have increased it, no doubt here, but they don’t do it anyway!
        Another thing bothers me, if the US is a financial parasite and its viability without replenishment from outside is impossible, then China is a technological parasite, it cannot create its own.
        In short, this behavior of the Chinese brother does not cause respect

    In China, of course, there are still enough problems. But there is something to learn. Thanks to the policy of combating corruption and drug addiction, this phenomenon is probably less for them than in Russia, with a much larger population. And as a result of this, combined with the promotion of its currency and the development of the domestic market, world domination is a matter of time.

    The Chinese, but without a woman, do not fly into space, however - they think. And the Chinese astronauts had a dime a dozen - they stood in line. Soon, they will settle on the moon, and we will report lopsided we still have stolen billions of space and defense.

    The growth is obvious, some of the things that China makes are unique (not about weapons) I encounter Chinese equipment and what it does regularly.

    The Chinese are confidently moving towards their goals, maybe not as fast as they want. But they themselves make rockets, themselves, following the example of the USSR, launched an orbital station and they themselves conduct God knows what research. In general, they master the cosmos as they need. I have always envied their industriousness and discipline. I understand the cost of keeping such a mass of people in obedience, but they will soon be ahead of the rest.

    You can, of course, gloat and scoff a lot and variously about the Chinese and their "wishes" and developments, but the fact remains - the Chinese are working to make the wishlist come true. And they work, in my opinion, quite successfully. Yes, something will not work, somewhere there is no necessary technology, BUT they do not sit idly by. By trial and error (and somewhere by espionage and theft of technology, not without it), they will come to a very high level of weapons development (and not only). The very fact that China has decided to build its own space station speaks volumes. They do not want to share it with anyone. And this is probably correct. And China is purposefully moving towards the implementation of its plans. And we, unfortunately, only count the stolen billions. It's a shame for your country.

    They are only at the beginning of the journey,


    unfortunately they have already passed the middle, and at such a pace in 10-20 years they’ll catch up with those ahead

    simple statistics:
    10 years ago the first manned flight,
    5 or 6 years ago the first spacewalk
    last year, the output of the module of the orbital station (yes not the ISS and not even the WORLD, but the functionality is comparable to the WORLD)
    - and this is a very serious technology

    further carrier rockets: heavy class, with a payload of up to 20 tons in low orbits, in 13 a new modification that allows the launch of cargo up to 25 tons
    launch statistics: for 2011. China is ahead of the US in the number of launches. having stepped only in Russia,
    emergency start statistics ... something like 95% is a very good indicator
    satellite output plans for 5 years - about 100

    when the USSR at the best time of the year launched about 100, for comparison, Russia launches about 30 launch vehicles per year

    most importantly, they use experience and mistakes, and where 50 years ago two powers stole huge money. China now gets in the metal for cheaper because it does not spend a lot of money studying concepts

    they are not at the beginning of the way, they breathe in the back of the head while stepping on heels !!!! Considering that their spaceports are farther south, the Russian Federation has reasons for the loss of carrier number 1 in the future, thank God we are doing something. and Angara and Vostochny, and our engines and a number of other projects, but competition is growing!

      Using other people's technologies and creating your own are not the same ... Not everything can be solved by simple copying either. I don't think their performance is very impressive. In terms of satellites and launches, it may be, but in manned astronautics they are losing a lot, their manned spacecraft is, in fact, "SOYUZ" from the 60s, 70s.

    Well done, of course, we didn’t wash it in such a way, bought all the secrets and everything to our advantage, not only that we just sifted, but we’re already collecting the missiles for the garages. Tell me, how did they do it? After all, even a spacesuit is a joint object (composition, tailoring, provision), this takes years ..

    The Chinese are good fellows, I still don't understand how they copied the Soviet "union" ... but by and large, a lot, in particular, purposefulness and systematic movement towards the set goal, you can learn from them ... and by and large they will be the second (if not the first) value after the states !!!

    this union of the 60s still serves today, of the new - only in the minds and on paper

    and the Chinese at the time of the creation of their "union" had three things - a proven Russian union, a shuttle, and to do something new, ... they took a proven, cheap and angry, and reliable, they took a ready-made concept, they stole something, they thought of something. here we have a Chinese "union" -
    they didn’t spend money on researching the new look


    2. copies of technology, the same Chinese J-11B copy of the su-27, engines worse, avionics better, definitely say that Chinese is worse - wrong

    Well, yes, in 30 years to go the way that the United States and the Russian Federation have passed in 50 - this is not impressive
    if they had made their ISS in 5 years, visited the moon and Mars, it would have been impressive ...
