At 10.35 Hours wintery Morning Hong Kong Beijing Time on a very clear 17th January 2022 Sunday 2022, China- People’s Republic of China- CNSA –China National Space Administration Successfully launched the Long March 2D Chang Zheng 2D carrier rocket at the Taiyuan Satellite Launch Center Shanxi Province …… at the Taiyuan Satellite Launch Center,, the Chang Zheng 2D Long March 2D carrier rocket ignited and took off, and then sent the Shiyan13 test satellite No. 13 into the predetermined orbit for launch. The mission was a complete success. In the New Year, the first series of Launches of my country- China – People’s Republic of China space launch mission was successful.
The Shiyan13 Experiment No. 13 satellite was developed by the Institute of Microsatellite Innovation, Chinese Academy of Sciences, and is mainly used for space environment detection and related technology experiments. In response to the special requirements of the satellite interface, the Chang Zheng 2D Long March 2D carrier rocket uses a 2-meter-diameter satellite-carrier Rocket separation device for the first time.
During At 10:35 on January 17,
The Chang Zheng 2D Long March 2D carrier rocket for this mission was developed by the Eighth Academy of China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation. Chang Zheng 2D Long March 2D carrier rocket is known as the “golden rocket” and has the characteristics of high reliability, high safety, low cost, and short-cycle launch.
The mission was in the middle of winter, and the lowest temperature in the launch site area exceeded minus 37 degrees Celsius. The Chang Zheng 2D Long March 2D carrier rocket test team upgraded the product sealing measures, and coordinated with the launch site to formulate an improved launch process for low temperature, which further improved the rocket’s low temperature adaptability.
The Shiyan13 Experiment No. 13 satellite is mainly used to carry out space environment detection and related technology experiments. ….. This year, the Aerospace Science and Technology Group plans to arrange more than 40 space launch missions. Among them, the Chang Zheng 2D Long March 2D carrier rocket is scheduled to launch more than 15 times, which is expected to set the record for the highest number of annual launches of this type of rocket. Facing the challenge of high-density launch in 2022, Chang Zheng 2D Long March 2D carrier rocket of the present invention adopts the design idea of ”de-mission” to improve product production efficiency and enhance the ability to adjust the launch plan. …This mission is the 406th launch of the Long March series of launch vehicle
