Traveling through time and space & Doing timey wimy stuff.

On 6th December 2020 Afternoon Hong Kong -Beijing lunch time Sunday, the Beijing flight control team of the China National Space Administration- CLEP- China Lunar Exploration Program Belt and Road Initiative Mons Rumker Luna Mission – December 6th 2020- Sunday Separate again, choose an opportunity to return-Chang’e-5 docking complex separates smoothly….At 12:35 Hong Kong – Beijing Time on December 6th 2020 , the Chang’e-5 orbital return assembly was successfully separated from the ascender and entered the waiting phase of the moon, and it will return to the earth at an opportunity.

再次分离,择机返回——嫦娥五号对接组合体顺利分离

12月6日12时35分,嫦娥五号轨返组合体与上升器成功分离,进入环月等待阶段,将择机返回地球。

Previously On 6th December 2020 Sunday, the Beijing flight control team of the China National Space Administration- CLEP- China Lunar Exploration Program Belt and Road Initiative Mons Rumker Luna Mission – December 6th 2020- Sunday, the Chang’e-5 ascender successfully rendezvous and docked with the orbiter and returner assembly, and the sample container was safely transferred to the returner at 6:12 Morning Hong Kong – Beijing Time. This is the first time that my country has realized lunar orbital rendezvous and docking.

From the moment the ascender enters the orbit around the moon, through long-range guidance and short-range autonomous control, the orbiter and returner assembly gradually approach the ascender, capture the ascender by claws, and complete the rendezvous and docking….. In which the Chang’e-5 ascender successfully rendezvous and docked with the orbiter and returner assembly, and the sample container was safely transferred to the returner at 6:12. This is China’s first lunar orbital rendezvous and docking……..  In the future, the Chang’e-5 orbiter and returner combination will be separated from the ascender and return to Earth at the right time.

In the future, the Chang’e-5 orbiter and returner combination will be separated from the ascender and return to Earth at the right time.

12月6日5时42分,嫦娥五号上升器成功与轨道器和返回器组合体交会对接,并于6时12分将样品容器安全转移至返回器中。这是我国首次实现月球轨道交会对接。

从上升器进入环月飞行轨道开始,通过远程导引和近程自主控制,轨道器和返回器组合体逐步靠近上升器,以抱爪的方式捕获上升器,完成交会对接。

后续,嫦娥五号轨道器和返回器组合体将与上升器分离,择机返回地球。

Previously On 3rd December 2020 Thursday, the Beijing flight control team of the China National Space Administration- CLEP- China Lunar Exploration Program Belt and Road Initiative Mons Rumker Luna Mission – At 23:10 Hong Kong Beijing time on December 3rd Thursday 2020, the 3000N engine of the Chang’e-5 ascender worked for about 6 minutes and successfully sent the ascender carrying the sample to the scheduled orbit around the moon. This is the first time that my country has realized the take-off of an extraterrestrial body.

Unlike ground take-off, the Chang’e-5 ascender does not have a mature launch tower system for lunar take-off. The lander is equivalent to the “temporary tower” of the ascender. The plume diversion space is limited and the earth-moon environment is different; in addition, because there is no navigation constellation on the moon, after the ascender takes off, it needs to use its own special sensors to realize autonomous positioning and attitude determination with the help of ground measurement and control.

Before taking off, the upper assembly is used to realize the deployment of the lunar flag and the unlocking and separation of the ascender and the lander. This national flag deployment is the first time that my country has achieved an “independent display” of the national flag on the surface of the moon. In the photo, the national flag in the hands of “Chang’e” is shining in the sun, and the “Chinese red” on the moon is particularly bright. After igniting take-off, the ascender undergoes three stages of vertical ascent, attitude adjustment and orbit injection, and enters the scheduled orbit around the moon. Subsequently, the ascender will rendezvous and dock with the orbital assembly waiting around the moon and transfer the lunar sample to the returner, which will wait for a suitable lunar-earth entrance window to prepare for its return to Earth.

飞离月球——嫦娥五号上升器进入预定轨道 实现我国首次地外天体起飞

12月3日23时10分,嫦娥五号上升器3000N发动机工作约6分钟,成功将携带样品的上升器送入到预定环月轨道。这是我国首次实现地外天体起飞。

与地面起飞不同,嫦娥五号上升器月面起飞不具备成熟的发射塔架系统,着陆器相当于上升器的“临时塔架”,上升器起飞面临起飞初始基准与起飞平台姿态不确定、发动机羽流导流空间受限、地月环境差异等挑战;另外由于月球上没有导航星座,上升器起飞后,需在地面测控辅助下,借助自身携带的特殊敏感器实现自主定位、定姿。

点火起飞前,着上组合体实现月面国旗展开以及上升器、着陆器的解锁分离。此次国旗展开是我国在月球表面首次实现国旗的“独立展示”,照片中“嫦娥”手中的国旗在阳光的照耀下,月球上的一抹“中国红”格外鲜艳。点火起飞后,上升器经历垂直上升、姿态调整和轨道射入三个阶段,进入预定环月飞行轨道。随后,上升器将与环月等待的轨返组合体交会对接,将月球样品转移到返回器,后者将等待合适的月地入射窗口,做好返回地球的准备。
