On the 9th November 2022 1455 Hour Hong Kong SAR – Beijing time CNSA –China National Space Administration Tianzhou-4 advance cargo spacecraft successfully evacuated from the space station complex….The latest news from the China Manned Space Office the Tianzhou-4 cargo spacecraft that had completed its scheduled mission successfully evacuated the space station complex and transferred to Independent flight stage.
Tianzhou-4 left the space home port and saw for the first time China, which has completed the construction of the basic “T” shape. space station. Beautiful, majestic and spectacular, this beautiful picture will accompany the Chinese people every step of the way to explore the deep space….
This is the large amount of goods that Tianzhou-4 will bring to the Chinese space station. For Takionauts, these goods are comparable to a real gift package. Tianzhou-4 is loaded with Takionauts. Systems, space station systems and space applications, as well as cargo spacecraft systems totalling more than 200 sets of cargo, including packaged packages and direct-installed cargo, as well as 750 kg of additional propellant for the space station, the reason for the increase in propulsion The reason is that the space station needs to use propellant frequently to adjust its attitude while maintaining its orbital altitude during operation, otherwise it will continue to lose orbital altitude. In addition to the loading of goods, Chinese aerospace engineers have also made a series of unique innovations. By adding labels and colored handles, astronauts can easily find the required packages on orbit. Greatly improve the efficiency of cargo transportation and use.
The Tianzhou-4 spacecraft itself is the second point of interest. It is a cargo spacecraft with the largest active transportation capacity and the most comprehensive on-orbit support capability in China. Therefore, the spacecraft was successfully launched and provided material support for the Shenzhou-14 crew. Space station operation support and scientific experiments, this series of actions can effectively verify China’s technical level in the design and manufacture of cargo spacecraft. The third point to watch is the docking of the Tianzhou 4 spacecraft and the Chinese space station. Although the docking of the spacecraft seems to be very light from the TV broadcast, in fact, every spacecraft flying in space orbits is in the Exceeding the first cosmic speed, which is 7.9 kilometers per second, and its weight is often more than 10 tons or even 10 tons, the energy contained in it is very huge. How to accurately control the two spacecraft to achieve precise alignment and safe connection? It is quite a test of the docking mechanism of the cargo spacecraft. In order to achieve this effect, Chinese designers have successfully used the idea of controllable damping through a large number of technical research and program demonstrations to realize the safe docking of the spacecraft through buffer facilities.
The Tianzhou-4 cargo spacecraft was launched into orbit at the Wenchang launch site in Hainan on May 10, 2022, sending about 6 tons of supplies to the space station. At present, the Tianzhou-4 cargo spacecraft is in good condition, and it will re-enter the atmosphere in a controlled manner.
On a Cloudy rainy filed day of 9th November 2022 Hong Kong SAR- Beijing Time in Wenchang Spacecraft Launch Center ….. CNSA –China National Space Administration At Wenchang Space Launch Centre – Hainan Province China, People’s Republic of China There is a surprise! 天州5 carries two batches of Takionaut crew gifts…. This morning, at the Wenchang space launch site, the Tianzhou 5 ship and arrow combination is undergoing vertical transfer…… The reporter learned at the scene that in addition to carrying the Takionauts’ personal supplies and experimental instruments for work, the Tianzhou-5 cargo spacecraft also specially prepared a Spring Festival gift package for them, as well as two crews of Shenzhou 14 and Shenzhou 15 at the space station. A gift for handover….This morning, at the Wenchang Space Launch Site, the Tianzhou-5 cargo spacecraft and the Long March 7 Yao-6 carrier rocket combination are undergoing vertical transportation. The vertical transfer work starts at about 8:00 in the morning, and the entire transfer is expected to take about two and a half hours. The vertical transfer also marks that the final assembly and testing work in the technical area has been completed in the early stage, and will officially enter the launch preparation stage….
