According to the China Manned Space Engineering Office, at 16:46 on September 11, 2023, Beijing time, the Tianzhou-5 cargo spacecraft, which has completed all scheduled tasks, successfully re-entered the atmosphere. Evacuate the space station assembly and transition to independent flight. It will re-enter the atmosphere in a controlled manner on September 12 as planned. Most of the components of the cargo spacecraft will be ablated and destroyed during the re-entry process, and a small amount of debris will fall into the South Pacific for a predetermined safety. sea area.
The Tianzhou-5 cargo spacecraft was launched into orbit at the Wenchang Space Launch Site on November 12, 2022, carrying consumables, propellants, and application materials for the three Shenzhou-15 astronauts to stay in orbit for six months (test ) experimental equipment and other materials, carrying a number of space application projects such as the “Macau Student Science Satellite No. 1” cube satellite, space hydrogen and oxygen fuel cells, and space high-energy particle detection payloads. During its in-orbit flight, the Tianzhou-5 cargo spacecraft evacuated the space station assembly on May 5, 2023. After flying independently for 33 days, it rendezvous and docked with the space station assembly again and continued to carry out relevant space technology experiments.
