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…………… On May 29th 2022 The Chang Zheng- Long March 5B Yao three carrier rocket arrived at Wenchang Space Launch Site safely] According to the China Manned Space Engineering Office, the Long March 5B Yao 3 carrier rocket that carried out the launch mission of the Wentian experimental module has completed all the research and development finalisation certification at the Factory also Wenchang Spacecraft Center..
In which today on the 18th July 2022 on a clear early morning 文天Experimental Cabin Vehicle and Chang Zheng – Long March 5B Yaosan Combination Transfer This morning, the Wentian experimental cabin and the Long March 5B Yaosan carrier rocket carried out a vertical transfer at the Wenchang Space Launch Site in Hainan. According to the plan, the Wentian experimental module will be launched at the Wenchang space launch site in Hainan this month of July 2022, Chang Zheng Long March 5B Yao-3 carrier rocket combination have been transferred to the launch complex area. In the follow-up, various functional inspections and joint tests before launch will be carried out as planned…..
The Expected Countdown towards the Launch of the Chang Zheng- Long March 5 Yao 3 Carrier Rocket in which is late July 2022 until the Launch towards the China Space Station for the Wentian Experimental module in connecting Strengthen the mission and have the courage to innovate and make breakthroughs! Carefully prepare, organize, and implement carefully to ensure the complete success of the launch mission, and take practical actions to welcome the Party’s 20th National Congress of Victory….
Launch wise of the Chang Zheng –Long March 5 Yao 3 Carrier Rocket .
Location: China Wenchang Space Launch Site 101 Launch Station (WSLS LC101)
Mission Rocket: Long March 5 Yiyao-3 Rocket (CZ-5B Y3)
Mission Load: Space Station “Wentian” Experimental Module (WT)
Launch Window: 2022 estimated launch time in late July,
2022: Afternoon of July 24, 2022 (to be determined)
Previously As of May 2022 both The experimental cabin is progressing smoothly, waiting for the launch The Wentian experimental cabin to be launched in July is ready for finally and the Mengtian experimental cabin is also making corresponding preparations.
After the construction of the China Space Station is completed, the two experimental cabins will be the main working places for astronauts in orbit. In both experimental cabins, space science experiments and technical experiments in the sealed cabin and outside the sealed cabin can be carried out. Both cabins are equipped with The load test cabinet inside the cabin and the load installation platform outside the cabin also provide support and guarantee measures such as information, power supply and heat dissipation, and can carry out experiments in various fields such as space science, space materials, space medicine and space exploration.
The Wentian experimental module is equipped with the same Taikonauts’ living facilities as the core module, including 3 sleeping areas, 1 sanitary area, kitchen and other facilities, which can guarantee the astronauts’ life. It can also work with the core module to support the life of 6 astronauts during the rotation of the two manned spacecraft; in addition, a small robotic arm is also configured, which can be used alone or in combination with the large robotic arm of the core module. , to jointly complete the tasks of Taikonauts leaving the cabin, caring for extravehicular facilities, and patrolling. In addition, the Wentian experimental cabin is also equipped with an astronaut exit airlock. After the space station is completed, the airlock of the Wentian experimental cabin will be As the main airlock cabin for astronauts to leave the cabin, the node cabin of the core cabin is used for other functions at this time, just as a backup; the Wentian experimental cabin also has a backup section for the core cabin to manage and control the assembly. That is to say, when the function of the core module platform fails, it can be switched to the Wentian experimental module to exercise the combined control and management functions, which can improve the reliability of the space station as a whole.
The Mengtian experimental cabin is equipped with a cargo airlock and an outboard deployment test platform. In the future, the scientific test equipment that needs to be installed outside the cabin can be transported to the space station through a cargo spacecraft, and then the load will be sent to the outside of the cabin through the cargo airlock, and the robotic arm or astronaut will install it on the platform outside the cabin. Realize the continuous update of the extravehicular test project.
