Traveling through time and space & Doing timey wimy stuff.

中国空间站 On December 2021, the Belt and Road Initiative CNSA –China National Space Administration  CSS China Space Station in which on a three to six months setting up a new home of the first three Shenzhou 13 in which spending up to on for the further construction and verifications of the systems of the CSS –China Space Station 2021 launch calendar in which currently the three Takionauts current Shenzhou 13 ……  Preparations for the six months of extension of the China Space Station  In which the currently it remains awaiting for the crew of setting up home in conducting fun scientifically onboard中国空间站..  China Space station …..

China – People’s Republic of China’s  Space Station will dock two Shenzhou manned spacecraft, Shenzhou No. 14 and No. 15 at the same time for the first time this year, to achieve on-orbit rotation of six astronaut crews] This year, the institute will complete the orbital assembly and construction of my country’s space station through six launch missions. . The Tianhe core module of my country’s space station has been in orbit for 286 days since its successful launch on April 29, 2021. Berlin Hou, deputy chief designer of the space station system of the Fifth Academy of Aerospace Science and Technology Group, introduced that through the residency of the Shenzhou No. 12 and No. 13 crews, the key technologies used in the subsequent space station construction were systematically and fully verified, and the results were in line with expectations.

During the construction phase of the space station, six spacecraft, Tianzhou-4, Shenzhou-14, Experimental Module I, Experimental Module-II, Tianzhou-5, and Shenzhou-15, will be launched in sequence. The final space station will complete the construction of a T-shaped configuration, and the activity space in the cabin will exceed 110 cubic meters, which can realize long-term 3-person and short-term 6-person residency. After the space station completes the on-orbit test of its functions and performance, it will move to the operational stage.

Berlin Hou said that this year, for the first time, the space station will dock two Shenzhou manned spacecraft, Shenzhou 14 and 15, at the same time, realizing the rotation of the six astronaut crews in orbit, and forming a six-cabin combination configuration for the first time. The space station has a high density of orbital construction tasks, and the tasks are highly coupled and interrelated. During the construction process, there will be more than ten times of docking and separation actions. At the same time, new tasks such as cabin section repositioning, combination of large and small arms, and cargo exit will be implemented. It means that the state management and control of the space station assembly is extremely complicated. After the construction of the space station is completed, astronaut residency and multi-domain space science and technology experiments will continue to be carried out

[Shenzhou 13 astronauts will return in April this year, and the space station will enter the construction stage] my country’s Tiangong space station will be composed of three modules: Tianhe core module, Wentian experimental module and Mengtian experimental module. Berlin Hou, deputy chief designer of the space station system of the Fifth Academy of Aerospace Science and Technology Group, introduced that the core module has been in orbit for 286 days since its successful launch on April 29, 2021. The Tianzhou-3 cargo spacecraft assembly is running and in normal condition. Berlin Hou introduced: “The Wentian experimental module and the Mengtian experimental module have been integrated on the ground. At present, the ground test and verification work is mainly carried out. At present, everything is going smoothly.”

The mission planning of the space station includes three stages; the key technology verification stage, The construction stage and the operation stage are currently in the key technology verification stage. In April this year, after the Shenzhou 13 astronaut crew returned from a 6-month stay in space, the researchers will conduct a comprehensive assessment of the entire key technology verification of the space station. After the results meet the requirements, it will be transferred to the construction stage. In the construction phase, six spacecraft, Tianzhou-4, Shenzhou-14, Wentian experimental module, Mengtian experimental module, Tianzhou-5 and Shenzhou-15, will be launched in sequence, and the Wentian experimental module and the dream will be completed in a manned state. The rendezvous, docking and repositioning of the sky experimental module and the core module will finally complete the construction of the T-shaped space station.

Berlin Hou introduced: “After the Wentian experimental module goes up, it will dock with the forward port of the space station. After the docking is completed, it will form a ‘in-line configuration’ and fly for a few months. Before the Mengtian experimental module goes up, the ‘in-line configuration’ will gradually Inverted into an L configuration, the Wentian experimental cabin is transferred from the forward port to the lateral permanent berthing port. Then, the Mengtian experimental cabin is launched and docked to the forward port, which is equivalent to forming a partial T-shaped configuration. After the docking is completed , and then turn the Mengtian experimental module in another direction, park it at another permanent berthing port, and receive the T-shape
