中国空间站On 17th Friday September, 2021, at Hong Kong SAR – Beijing Time morning, the Belt and Road Initiative CNSA –China National Space Administration CSS China Space Station in which on a three month setting up a new home of the first three Shenzhou 12 crew Takionauts –Chinese Astronauts Nie Haisheng – Liu Boming – Tang Hongbo returned home from their second home landing on safely at Dongfeng Aerospace City district in which landing at Inner Mongolia Region of China – People’s Republic of China…..
Following the next day according to the China Manned Space Engineering Office, at 10:25 on September 18, 2021, Beijing time, the Tianzhou-2 cargo spacecraft separated from the rear port of the space station’s sky and core compartment, and flew around to the forward port to complete the automatic rendezvous and docking. , The whole process lasted about 4 hours. At present, the combination of the core module of the space station and the Tianzhou-2 cargo spacecraft is in good condition. Follow-up will welcome visits from the Tianzhou-3 cargo spacecraft and the Shenzhou-13 manned spacecraft.
Tianzhou-2 will verify the subsequent test cabin transposition The Tianzhou-2 cargo spacecraft will conduct two subsequent tests. One is to cooperate with the robot arm’s transposition test to make a preliminary test for the subsequent experimental cabin transposition. Technical verification. One is to cooperate with the astronauts to conduct manual teleportation tests to verify the control capability of the cargo spacecraft’s own backup control system.
Yang Sheng, the overall chief designer of the Tianzhou-2 cargo system of the Fifth Academy of Aerospace Science and Technology Group: Compared with the space station stage, all the technologies of our entire cargo ship can be fully verified in the Tianzhou-2 mission, including the assembly of the space station. Some key construction technologies can be verified.
Yang Sheng, the overall chief designer of the Tianzhou-2 cargo system of the Fifth Academy of the Aerospace Science and Technology Group: After these tasks are completed, it will leave the space station at an opportunity based on its overall consumption and lifespan, and bring the waste back to the atmosphere and burn it. Therefore, Tianzhou 2 should be the cargo spacecraft with the most tasks, and then the most arduous, with a relatively long docking time. We think the entire on-track performance is also very perfect. Tianzhou-2 cargo spacecraft completed circumnavigation and forward rendezvous and docking……the Tianzhou-2 cargo spacecraft separated from the rear port of the space station’s Tianhe core compartment , And fly around to the forward port to complete the automatic rendezvous and docking. The whole process lasts about 4 hours. At present, the combination of the space station’s Tianhe core module and the Tianzhou-2 cargo spacecraft is in good condition, and will successively welcome visits from the Tianzhou-3 cargo spacecraft and the Shenzhou-13 manned spacecraft….
