Traveling through time and space & Doing timey wimy stuff.

Figure 1 CSS – China Space Station Wentian experimental

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.

The physical photos of the CSS – China Space Station Wentian experimental module “Ask the Sky” experimental cabin are released for the first time!

Figure 1 shows, from top to bottom, the truss of the experimental cabin I, the resource cabin (two main and relay antennas on the front side can be seen, and the folded solar wings on both sides), the EVA airlock cabin (visible exposure experiment outside the cabin) Load mounting platform and RCS), working cabin (portholes and robotic arm adapters are visible outside the cabin, and there are additional 3 sleeping areas and 1 sanitary area in the cabin).

Figure 2 shows the location where the Wentian experimental module is parked on the completed 中国Space Station: the fourth quadrant of the space station.

Figure 3 is a schematic diagram of the interaction of the Wentian small robotic arm, the exposed load outside the vehicle, and the experiment platform outside the vehicle.
