LandSpace 蓝箭航天 One of sixty Chinese private space Carrier Rocket Companies in China-People’s Republic of China… On the occasion of the centenary of the founding of the party, the first phase of the Jiaxing LandSpace Blue Arrow Aerospace Center, located in VIC International Plaza, No. 13 Ronghua South Road, Yizhuang Economic and Technological Development Zone, Beijing China – People’s Republic of China…. The company located in a gathering place for the aerospace industry chain laid out in Zhejiang, was completed and will soon be put into use. Established mass production capacity for medium and large rockets, and completed the first phase of Jiaxing Blue Arrow Space Center…. Blue Arrow Aerospace Technology Co., Ltd. (Blue Arrow Aerospace) is a leading domestic commercial company for the creation and operation of aerospace transportation systems, established in June 2015, a national high-tech enterprise, Member of the International Astronautical Federation (IAF). Guided by the national strategy and guided by market demand, Blue Arrow Aerospace is committed to developing a series of medium and large launch vehicles with liquid oxygen methane as propellant, providing cost-effective and highly reliable launch services for the global market.
朱鹏二号On the 12th July 2023酒泉衛星發射中心 Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center LandSpace Blue Arrow Aerospace Center, LandSpace 蓝箭航天Suzaku-2 Yao-2 Carrier rocket successfully Launched At 09:00 Hours on July 12th, 2023, Beijing time, the Suzaku-2 Yao-2 carrier rocket was launched at the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center, Inner Mongolia, China, People’s Republic of China The flight mission was completed according to the procedure, and the launch mission was a complete success. This mission is the second flight of the Suzaku-2 carrier rocket. Today, Blue Arrow proves to the world that methane can fly!
The LANDSPACE flight mission was completed according to the procedure, and the launch mission was a complete success. This mission is the second flight of the Suzaku-2 launch vehicle. The Suzaku-2 rocket has become the first launch vehicle in human history that uses liquid methane as a propellant to successfully enter orbit….
朱鹏二号 At present, the reusable liquid fuel engines that have completed the whole system test run include: “Lingyun” (10 tons of thrust, liquid oxygen methane) and “Dragon Cloud” (80 tons of thrust, liquid oxygen methane) of Kyushu Yunjian , “Thunder-R1” of Deep Blue Aerospace (20 tons of thrust, liquid oxygen kerosene), “Sky” of Galaxy Power (50 tons of thrust, liquid oxygen kerosene), “Focus One” of Star Glory (15 tons of thrust, liquid oxygen kerosene) Methane), Tianbing Science and Technology’s “Tianhuo 11” (30 tons thrust, liquid oxygen kerosene) and “Tianhuo 12” (110 tons thrust, liquid oxygen kerosene), Aerospace Propulsion “Canglong One” (60 tons thrust, liquid oxygen methane), etc.
From vertical beautiful picture! The Suzaku-2 Yao-2 carrier rocket, which uses liquid oxygen methane as propellant, has a two-stage configuration. The diameter of the rocket body is 3.35 meters, the height of the whole rocket is 49.5 meters, the take-off weight is 219 tons, and the take-off thrust is 268 tons. The fairing has a maximum diameter of 3.35 meters and a total length of 8.237 meters. The first stage of the rocket uses four Tianque 80-ton liquid oxygen methane engines connected in parallel, and the second stage uses a combination of Tianque 80-ton liquid oxygen methane engine and a Tianque 10-ton swimming liquid oxygen methane engine.
[The launch of Suzaku-2 should have no payload] Attentive netizens have noticed that the Blue Arrow’s draft did not mention any satellite payload information. According to anecdotal reports, there was no payload for this launch, only a counterweight. This is also reasonable. After all, the first flight failed, and no one can say whether the go-around will be successful. It is also understandable to be on the safe side to launch the counterweight. The reason is similar for Star Glory Yao 5 to launch without payload.
So Suzaku-2 has only passed the first big test, and there is a test of entering orbit with a load before the actual operation, which should be the next launch.
Blue Arrow’s success came at the right time, because according to rumours, Blue Arrow happened to be one of the major launch parties of my country’s X-net Internet constellation, and its successful orbital success in time proved its launch capability. strong condition. In China’s private aerospace industry today, basically those who can win orders from the X network have a high probability of surviving
On the 6th July 2023 the LandSpace Suzaku 2 Yao 2 Carrier Rocket making its way towards the LandSpace delicate launch complex on that day as on the launch grounds on Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center in preparations checking list of LandSpace Blue Arrow Aerospace’s Suzaku-2 Yao-2 carrier rocket is currently scheduled to be launched at station 96 of the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center in China on the afternoon of July 12, 2023……
This launch mission will verify the independent development capability of the entire system of the Suzaku-2 liquid launch vehicle and challenge the world’s first orbital liquid oxygen methane rocket. It is of milestone significance.
On the 4th May 2023酒泉衛星發射中心 Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center LandSpace Blue Arrow Aerospace Center,LandSpace 蓝箭航天Suzaku-2 Yao-2 Carrier rocket successfully arrived at Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center Blue Arrow Aerospace Rocket Launch Site The Suzaku-2 Yao-2 Carrier rocket set off from the Jiaxing rocket manufacturing base of LandSpace Blue Arrow Aerospace Center, LandSpace 蓝箭航天on May 4, 2023, passing through dozens of provinces City, after more than 3,700 kilometers and a total of 9 days, it successfully arrived at the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center Blue Arrow Space Rocket Launch Site…
