Traveling through time and space & Doing timey wimy stuff.

Founded in 2015 located in Beijing ….天兵科技 – 北京天兵科技有限公司Tianbing Technology is an Aerospace propulsion system supplier and spacecraft provider One of Sixty Plus Chinese carrier Rocket companies in China, People’s Republic of China ……. Tianbing Technology is an advanced aerospace propulsion system supplier and aerospace vehicle provider. Tianbing Technology independently develops the next-generation ambient temperature green HCP liquid propellant and minimalist aerospace propulsion system. As an upgraded product of traditional chemical propulsion system, it can meet cost-effective aerospace. Advance system supporting needs. The next-generation green HCP aerospace propulsion system, first tested by Tianbing Technology, can be used in the small-vehicle main power and launch vehicle upper-level propulsion system.

At 16:48 Hong Kong SAR- Beijing time on April 2, the Space Pioneer- Tianlong-2 Yaoyi Yao One carrier rocket successfully made its maiden flight at the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center inner Mongolia in China, People’s Republic of China , and successfully sent the love space science satellite into the predetermined orbit , the launch mission was a complete success. The main purpose of this first flight test is to verify the correctness of the overall plan of the launch vehicle and the coordination among various systems, and to obtain the flight environment parameters of the whole rocket. The Love Space Science satellite carried on board is mainly used to carry out technical verification such as remote sensing imaging experiments. This mission is the first flight of the Tianlong-2 carrier rocket…

Space Pioneer Tianlong-2 carrier rocket is about to fly for the first time at the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center…..The Tianlong-2 liquid oxygen kerosene carrier rocket was developed by Beijing Tianbing Technology Co., Ltd. The rocket is a three-stage configuration with a total length of 32.8 meters, a take-off mass of 150 tons, a take-off thrust of 190 tons, and a low-earth orbit capacity of 2 tons. The capacity of the sun-synchronous orbit per Kilometer is 1.5 tons.
Will it become the first liquid rocket to enter orbit by a Chinese private company? expect!

Tianlong-2 on the ground of Jiuquan Field is ready to go! The rocket has completed the filling of kerosene and liquid oxygen earlier,

Tianlong-2 carrier rocket is a medium-sized carrier rocket developed by Tianbing Technology for three years. The rocket is a three-stage liquid rocket, using liquid oxygen and coal-based aerospace kerosene propellants. The rocket has a diameter of 3.35 meters, a length of 32.8 meters, and a take-off mass of 153. tons, the take-off thrust is 193 tons, the sun-synchronous orbit carrying capacity at 500 km altitude is 1.5 tons, the LEO carrying capacity is 2 tons, and it can reach 4 tons after improvement. The rocket launched this time was named “Zhangjiagang”.

The first flight of the Tianlong-2 launch vehicle was successful, creating seven new records in international and domestic spaceflight:

1. The first liquid launch vehicle in the world’s private spaceflight successfully entered orbit for the first time;
2. The world’s first flight using coal-based aerospace kerosene 3.
China’s first liquid launch vehicle that does not rely on a launch station;
4. China’s first launch vehicle that uses 3D printed high-pressure afterburning engines;
5. China’s first launch vehicle that uses 3-engine parallel engine technology;
6 .China’s first launch vehicle that adopts an all-aluminum alloy surface tension tank attitude-orbit control system;
7.China’s first launch vehicle that realizes the reuse of rocket body structure.

Tianlong-2 is the world’s first liquid launch vehicle that uses coal-based aerospace kerosene as fuel for flight. The successful flight of Tianlong-2 is the follow-up delivery of coal-based aerospace kerosene for the flight use of new-generation launch vehicles such as my country’s Long March 5 and Long March 7. It has laid a solid foundation for reducing launch costs and achieving reuse.

Tianbing Technology Tianlong 2 Yaoyi rocket highway horizontal transfer and the vertical screen of the field! ! This “three flats and one vertical” test launch mode is similar to the Long March 6 rocket, and it is the same as the Long March 6 with first-level and second-level kerosene….

An orange cube payload was placed on the top of the Tianlong-2 Yaoyi rocket. Its appearance is almost the same as the satellite on the TL-2 first flight mission logo, and it should be the “main star”.
But all the press releases have the same calibre. They all say that only the “Love Space Science” 4U cube star (placed in the cube star separator) is carried, and no other loads are mentioned. Therefore, it is speculated that the probability of this orange cube is Counterweight.

“Jinta” (“Love Space Science”) is a remote sensing satellite developed by Hunan Hangsheng Satellite Technology Co., Ltd. The cube star is about 40 centimetres high and weighs about 8 kilograms. It is mainly used to verify the key points of the spacecraft. Technology, and at the same time cooperate with popular science education to show the charm of spaceflight. The star is equipped with a star camera, which can provide a large amount of cosmic image materials for the science education of Chinese teenagers and send them back to the ground in real time. In addition, it will conduct the first space test of the feasibility of radio charging in the country.
It is understood that the Tianlong-2 carrier rocket that undertakes the delivery mission has arrived at the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center, and will complete the flight test mission by the end of March, transporting two remote sensing satellites into a sun-synchronous orbit at an altitude of 500 kilometers, which will open up China’s commercial aerospace liquid delivery A new era of rocketry…
