Currently 2023 CNSA- China National Space Administration Recently, at the No. 211 Factory of the First Academy of China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation, the “Long March 2F” Yao-19 carrier rocket has entered the final assembly state, and the development and production of this rocket has entered the final stage.
According to the plan, the “ChangZheng-Long March 2F Yao 19 rocket will be used to launch the “Shenzhou 19” manned spacecraft, which is expected to be launched around October 2024. According to China’s manned launch mission “one for one, one for each, rolling backup” arrangement, before the “Shenzhou 18″ launch mission is carried out, the ” ChangZheng-Long March 2F ” Yao 19 rocket and the “Shenzhou 19” spacecraft will enter emergency rescue status .
It is expected that in April 2024, the “Shenzhou 18″ spacecraft will be launched by the ” ChangZheng-Long March 2F ” Yao 18 rocket. Before that, the backup ship “Shenzhou 19″ spacecraft and the ” ChangZheng-Long March 2F ” Yao 19 rocket The rocket will arrive at the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center several months before launch. At present, the launch site process of “one for one and one for one” for the ” ChangZheng-Long March 2F ” rocket has been compressed to 35 days, and will be further compressed to 30 days.
” ChangZheng-Long March 2F ” is a medium-sized two-stage semi-normal temperature liquid launch vehicle developed by the First Academy of China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation. It consists of a core first stage, a core second stage, and four boosters bundled around the core first stage. The main power of the arrow is dinitrogen tetroxide/uniform dimethylhydrazine propellant. The rocket currently in use is the ” ChangZheng-Long March 2F ” improved version (CZ-2F/G), with a total length of about 58.34 meters, a core diameter of 3.35 meters, a booster diameter of 2.25 meters, a take-off mass of about 497 tons, and a perigee of 200 Kilometers, an apogee of 350 kilometers, and a Low Earth Orbit (LEO) with an inclination of 42 degrees has a carrying capacity of not less than 8.8 tons.
As of the “Shenzhou 17″ launch mission, the “ChangZheng-Long March 2F ” rocket has carried out 21 launch missions, including 17 “Shenzhou” spacecraft launches, 2 “Tiangong” series space laboratory launches, and 2 reusable test spaceflight missions. The launcher has a 100% success rate. Currently, the ” ChangZheng-Long March 2F ” is currently China, People’s Republic of China only manned rocket currently in service, and it is also one of the world’s 3-type manned rockets currently in service that has performed manned launches…..
