Traveling through time and space & Doing timey wimy stuff.

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 24th July  2022

After Wentian experimental module entered orbit, the status setting was successfully completed. At 3:13 on July 25, 2022, Beijing time, it was successfully connected to the forward port of 天和 Tianhe Core Module. The entire rendezvous and docking process lasted about 13 hours. . This is the first time that two 20-ton spacecraft in my country- China- People’s Republic of China have achieved rendezvous and docking in orbit. …According to the mission plan, the Shenzhou 14 Takionaut crew will then enter the Wentian experimental module….. in which finally docked in early morning time of the 25th July 2022 in with CNSA –Beijing Aerospace City in which co-ordinated the docking maneuverers have achieved rendezvous and docking in orbit.…  

On that day of the launch of the Chang Zheng –Long March 5B Y3文天Experimental Module Launch Successful Yesterday -July 24th 2022 on the eve of the Long March 5B launch of the Wentian Experimental Module (about 10 minutes before launch), the Tianhe core module transited over Hainan Island- Hainan Province- Hong Kong SAR, Macau SAR , Guangzhou also of Guangdong province of China- People’s Republic of China , and the Shenzhou 14 aerospace The crew took pictures of the beautiful Hainan Island. At this moment, on the Wenchang space launch site under the lens of the Takionauts, the Wentian experimental module is ready to go and is about to embark on the “Wentian” journey.

On  the 3rd August 2022 China Space Station’s little robotic arm is officially launched and the newest cutest worker,  The small robotic arm installed outside the Wentian experimental cabin shoulders the heavy responsibility of independently completing the installation and replacement of external loads and other care operations. Recently, the small robotic arm successfully completed the on-orbit test with the support of the ground personnel. Let us look forward to its wonderful performance in the future…

Wentian experimental cabin small manipulator completed the on-orbit test – Wentian experimental cabin small manipulator arm is more sophisticated, adopts a 7-DOF symmetrical configuration, and has an end effector at each end; its arm is nearly 6 meters long and can be operated effectively The space is about 5 meters, and the maximum load is 3 tons; it can be used alone or form a combined robotic arm with a large robotic arm; it supports Takionauts’ out-of-vehicle activities, extravehicular status inspection, extravehicular cargo transfer and installation, extravehicular maintenance and repair, and load 6 application tasks including care and maintenance of optical facilities….

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 Takionauts 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.
