The return of three astronauts to Earth on Saturday after six months at China’s new airport marks the island’s ambition, ending its journey. very long run.
The world’s second -largest economy has put billions into its military strategy, hoping to send people to the moon.
China has come a long way in catching up with the United States and Russia, whose astronauts and cosmonauts have years of experience in space exploration.
Here’s an overview of the country’s skyline, and where to go:
The Oath of Mao
Shortly after the Soviet Union liberated Sputnik in 1957, President Mao Zedong said: “We will build satellites.”
More than a decade has passed, but in 1970, China launched its first satellite on a Long March rocket.
Man flew a long way, and Yang Liwei became China’s first “taikonaut” in 2003.
As the release began, concerns were raised about the missionary’s possibility that Beijing might end a live television broadcast at the last minute.
But it went slowly, with Yang orbiting the Earth 14 times in a 21 -hour ride over the Shenzhou 5.
China has launched seven cruise lines since then.
airport and ‘Jade Rabbit’
Following in the footsteps of the United States and Russia, China began planning to build its own nuclear power plant around the globe.
The Tiangong-1 lab was established in 2011.
In 2013, the second Chinese woman in space, Wang Yaping, gave a video clip from the space module to children in the world’s largest country.
The work was also used for medical experiments and, most importantly, experiments intended to prepare for the construction of the airspace.
It was followed by the “Jade Rabbit” lunar rover in 2013, which was first seen as a dud when it rested and stopped sending signals to Earth.
He recovered, however, looking at the moon’s surface for 31 months – more than his life had expected.
In 2016, China launched its second orbital lab, the Tiangong-2. Astronauts who visited the site experimented with growing rice and other crops.
‘Spirit of heaven’
Under President Xi Jinping, plans for China’s “open mind” were introduced.
Beijing is looking to finalize with the United States and Russia after years of comparing their milestones.
In addition to the spacecraft, China is planning to build a spacecraft on the Moon, and the country’s National Space Administration has said it plans to launch a lunar mission by 2029.
But lunar activity came to a halt in 2017 when the Long March-5 Y2, a heavy lifting rock, did not launch a mission to send communication satellites into orbit.
It demanded a delay in the release of Change-5, which was originally scheduled to collect Moon samples in the second half of 2017.
Another robot, the Changʻe -4, landed on the long side of the moon in January 2019 – a historic first.
It was followed by someone who landed on the side of the moon last year, carrying the Chinese flag on the surface of the moon.
The unmanned aerial vehicle returned to Earth in December with rocks and dirt – replicas of the first month collected in four years.
And in February 2021, the first images of Mars were returned by the five-ton Tianwen-1, which then launched a rover on the Martian surface in May that began searching for the surface of the Red Planet.
Palace in heaven
A third of the astronauts sailed successfully in October with the main Tianhe module of the Chinese space station, which will be put into orbit in April 2021.
The astronauts stayed on the field for six months before returning safely to Earth on Saturday, ending China’s longest flight to date.
China’s Tiangong airport – also known as the “heavenly palace” – needs about 11 missionaries to bring in more pieces and gather them into orbit.
In conclusion, it is expected to remain in low Earth orbit between 400 and 450 kilometers (250 and 280 miles) above our Earth for at least 10 years – knowing the need to maintain a long human seat in the air.
Although China does not intend to use its nuclear power plant on the size of the International Space Station, Beijing says it is open to foreign intervention.
It is not known at this time how big that meeting was.
