On Hainan Province –China –People’s Republic of China…. in the district area of the Wenchang – Wenchang Spacecraft launch center in which the awesome team at one of many CNSA –China National Space Administration that China National Space Administration………….. In which is preparing for the starry sky is vast, and there is no end to exploration. On May 10th 2022 At 01:56 on Hong Kong SAR- Beijing Time , the Tianzhou-4 cargo spacecraft will be launched on the Chang Zheng Long March 7 Yao-5 Carrier Rocket. In this mission, Tianzhou-4 will not only perform the task of dispatching “space express”, but also undertake the work of refuelling the Tianhe core module. In addition, the Tianzhou-4 cargo spacecraft will also accompany the Shenzhou-14 crew that will enter the space station to stay in orbit for 6 months. Poke the live broadcast and witness the Tianzhou-4 departure into space together….!
At 01:56 Hong Kong SAR- Beijing Time early morning on May 10th, the Chang Zheng- Long March 7 Yao5 carrier rocket carrying the Tianzhou 4 cargo spacecraft was ignited and launched at the Wenchang Space Launch Site in China. About 10 minutes later, The spacecraft and the rocket were successfully separated and entered the predetermined orbit. At 2:23 Hong Kong SAR- Beijing Time, the solar panels of the spacecraft started to work smoothly, and the launch was a complete success. In the follow-up, the Tianzhou-4 cargo spacecraft will rendezvous with the orbiting space station assembly.
Shenzhou 14 Takionauts have a blind box of food for their birthday in space…..in which after the launch Today Tianzhou-4 successfully docked with the sky and the core module. Among the delicacies brought into space by Tianzhou-4, four new vegetables have been added, as well as special festive foods for the Mid-Autumn Festival and the Winter Solstice. After astronauts complete major tasks such as going out of the cabin, they can share “reward food”; astronauts can also open “blind box food” on their birthday, and get a small surprise
This is the 22nd launch mission of China – People’s Republic of China manned space project, the first launch mission of the space station construction from the key technology verification stage to the on-orbit construction stage, and the 420th flight of the Long March series of launch vehicles
In this mission, the total weight of the Tianzhou-4 cargo spacecraft is about 6.2 tons. It will stay in orbit for the Shenzhou 14 crew for half a year, assemble and construct the space station, and carry out materials science and aerospace. Provide material support for space station applications such as medical experiments.
This year, China’s manned space project will also carry out five space launch missions, sending two manned spacecraft, two space station experimental modules, and one cargo spacecraft into space to complete the orbital construction of China space station….
For the first time, the Chang Zheng Long March 7 Yao-5 carrier rocket uses the Beidou satellite navigation system as the first priority for navigation reception] In the launch mission, to achieve the rendezvous and docking between the cargo spacecraft and the Tianhe core module, it is necessary to precisely push the cargo spacecraft to the Tianhe core The space orbital plane where the capsule is located, which requires that the rocket must be fired and lifted off according to the predetermined time, within milliseconds. In order to better adapt to the failure situation and improve the rocket’s ability to launch on time, the Chang Zheng Long March 7 Yao-5 carrier rocket uses the iterative guidance algorithm to expand the launch window.
This is the 22nd launch mission of my country’s manned space project, the first launch mission of the space station construction from the key technology verification stage to the on-orbit construction stage, and the 420th flight of the Long March series of launch vehicles
