Traveling through time and space & Doing timey wimy stuff.

On 5th July 2021 Monday 0728  a summery clear morning Hong Kong SAR- Beijing Time-  CNSA –China National Space Administration  on which from Jiuquan Satellite launch Center – Inner Mongolia- China-People’s Republic of China… It  successfully launched the international ionic Long March 4C- Chang Zheng 4C Carrier Rocket  in which July 2021 there’s been numerous launches in which celebrating the 100th CPC year anniversary more in China – People’s Republic of China..

Launching scheduling in which this mission is the 377th flight of the Long March series of carrier rockets….deploying on the sending the Fengyun-3 E star into its intended orbit , The launch was a complete success…. The Long March 4 series is developed by the Eighth Academy of Sciences…

The Fengyun-3 E weather earth Science successfully launched deployed..! in which the it’s provision design is as a  Service emergency weather event decision-making evaluation . The Fengyun-3 E satellite is mainly used for weather forecasting, climate forecasting, environmental monitoring and disaster prevention and mitigation, etc. It provides weather detection information for the world, and provides reliable weather data for government departments at all levels to make decisions and assessments of sudden weather events. Fengyun-3 E satellite. E FY FY-III satellite is a satellite of the family’s first dawn orbit meteorological satellite, but also the world’s first implementation of business operations at dawn sun-synchronous orbit meteorological satellite 

Developed by the Eighth Academy of China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation (Shanghai Institute of Aerospace Technology) has a total weight of 2.69 tons and runs on the earth’s twilight boundary. On the sun-synchronous orbit above, it can fill the gap of satellite observation data in the 6-hour assimilation window of global numerical weather prediction, achieve 100% coverage of global observation data, significantly improve the accuracy of numerical weather prediction, and effectively improve China’s weather forecast prediction, response to climate change, Build disaster prevention and mitigation systems, establish environmental and ecological monitoring, and space weather forecast and early warning capabilities.

The Fengyun-3 E star is loaded with 11 payloads, including 3 newly developed instruments represented by wind field measurement radar, solar irradiance spectrometer and solar X-EUV imager, 7 upgraded instruments and 1 inherited Upgrade the instrument. Among the three newly added payloads, the wind field measurement radar is the first active detection radar carried by the Fengyun series satellites. It is a dual-frequency, dual-polarization cone-scanning microwave radar. It mainly obtains global ocean surface wind field information through sea surface backscatter measurement. ; The solar irradiance spectrometer measures the solar spectral irradiance daily through the three channels of ultraviolet, visible and infrared, and obtains the characteristics of solar spectral irradiance. The measurement data will be widely used in solar physics, atmospheric physics and climate physics. Scientific research; the solar X-EUV imager uses solar radiation in the X-ray band and extreme ultraviolet band radiation to achieve long-term, continuous, high-time-resolved full-plane and low-corona imaging observations of the sun, and obtain high-resolution images of the sun. Space weather forecast provides a more accurate reference.

Among the 7 upgraded instruments, the medium-resolution spectral imager (low-light type) has a new low-light channel, which can obtain images covering the world’s 100-meter level (250m*2600km) spatial resolution, which is 33% higher than the previous generation product. %, is China’s most advanced quantitative global low-light detection instrument; infrared hyperspectral atmospheric sounder (type Ⅱ) medium-wave and short-wave sensitivity will be more than doubled than before; microwave thermometer (type Ⅲ) added 4 channels , The number of detection channels has reached 17; the GNSS-R sea surface wind field detection function has been added to the global navigation satellite occultation sounder (Type II), which will realize the three-dimensional monitoring of the ionosphere, atmosphere and sea surface wind field. For the first time, the integrated detection of GNSS occultation and GNSS-R remote sensing has been realized; the solar radiation monitor (international comparison type) used to monitor changes in solar irradiance and capture solar activity signals is newly added to the Swiss DARA radiometer, which will be realized for the first time in Chinese and foreign instruments Simultaneous observation in orbit.
