In which iSpace- Interstellar Glory in which it is the first Chinese Private Space Company to do so successfully commercially first out from sixty known private space companies in China People’s Republic of China…  Founded in Beijing 2016 located in Beijing Economic and Technological Development Zone or known for short as E-Town in Capital of China – People’s Republic of China …

Beijing Interstellar Glory Space Technology Co., Ltd. (referred to as “Interstellar Glory”) was established in October 2016, with Peng Xiaobo as the legal representative. The company is committed to developing excellent commercial launch vehicles and providing systematic launch solutions, providing global commercial aerospace customers with more efficient, higher-quality, and more cost-effective launch services, so as to greatly improve the ability of human beings to freely enter and exit space.

The company focuses on the research and development of intelligent launch vehicles, and provides integrated commercial launch services for global satellite and constellation customers.

Just now on the 2nd November 2023, my country China, People’s Republic of China has used an orbit-level engine for the first time to conduct a vertical take-off and landing test of a rocket, successfully conducting a key verification of rocket recovery and reuse.

At around 1400 Hours Hong Kong SAR- Beijing Time this afternoon 2nd November 2023, Beijing Interstellar Glory Space Technology Co., Ltd. successfully carried out the first vertical take-off and landing test of the Hyperbola-2 verification rocket at the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center (official announcement: the first domestic use of full-scale reusable one-stage liquid oxygen Vertical take-off and landing flight test of methane liquid rocket).

The flight test mission of the liquid oxygen methane reusable verification rocket Hyperbola II (codenamed SQX-2Y) independently developed by Star Glory was a complete success

🔷The rocket adopts a full-size rocket body diameter of 3.35m and a total length of about 17m

🔷Assembled and independently developed by Star Glory The Focus-1 depth variable thrust liquid oxygen methane engine (codenamed JD-1)
🔷The test flight altitude is 178.42m, the flight time is 50.82s
🔷The landing position accuracy is about 1.68m, the landing speed is 0.025m/s, and the landing attitude angle is about 0.18°. The rolling angle is about 4°, and the flight test mission was successfully completed with high precision

The vertical takeoff and landing test is a key verification and iteration step for rocket recovery and reuse. The developers built a test platform with similar size, weight, power and control system to the first stage of the real rocket (or even directly modified it from the rocket body), and organized it in the atmosphere. Meters, hundreds of meters, and kilometers are gradually progressively tested (parts can be saved), thereby optimizing the software and hardware design, and finally realizing the recovery and reuse of the first stage of the rocket in orbit.

Today’s test rocket is equipped with a Focus-1 liquid oxygen methane engine. This is also the first time that my country has used an engine with the ability to enter orbit for such a test.

深蓝航天  Deep Blue Limited – Deep Blue Aerospace One of sixty Chinese private space Carrier Rocket Companies in China-People’s Republic of China…  As many of sixty plus Private Rocket Deep Blue Aerospace Co., Ltd. was established in 2017. The company is mainly a high-tech aerospace enterprise that focuses on the direction of liquid recovery and reusable launch vehicles and provides users with commercial launch services. Deep Blue Aerospace Co., Ltd. is headquartered in Nantong City, Jiangsu Province. At the same time, the company has rocket general and liquid engine R&D centers in Yizhuang, Beijing and Xi’an, Shaanxi, respectively, and a rocket power system test base in Tongchuan, Shaanxi…..

Recently , the reusable liquid engine “Thunder-R1” independently developed by Deep Blue Aerospace conducted its first long-distance test run of 420 seconds under rated operating conditions. The test run time covered more than twice the flight time of the first stage of the reusable rocket “Nebula-1 ” ; The engine started and shut down normally, and the whole process worked stably. The test was a complete success, marking that the “Thunder-R1” engine entered the series boundary, life and reliability test stage.

As China’s first pin-bolt reusable liquid oxygen kerosene engine , this long-distance test run verified the reliability and stability of the system and components of the “Thunder-R1” engine under rated operating conditions. The engine status is stable and its performance is excellent. It demonstrates the technical strength and product leadership of Deep Blue Aerospace’s reusable rocket engine, and proves that the “Thunder-R1” is one step closer to being officially delivered, carrying out the high-altitude recovery test of the first stage of the “Nebula-1” rocket, and flying into orbit.

 Thunder-R1″ is a liquid engine product specially developed for vertical recovery and reuse of launch vehicles. It currently demonstrates excellent performance in various aspects such as reuse, multiple starts, and wide-range thrust adjustment. 85% of the weight of this engine is made by 3D printing. It adopts a pump-back swing and has a compact structure. It is used as the main power for the first and second stages of the Deep Blue Aerospace “Nebula-1” recyclable and reusable liquid launch vehicle.

Up to now, the cumulative test run time of the same engine has reached 2,000 seconds, which has verified the anti-fatigue characteristics and service life of engine components in the harsh engine working environment.

The single ground ignition of the engine lasted 420 seconds. It assessed the long-range work coordination, process reliability and margin design of the entire engine and each component. According to real-time monitoring throughout the test run, the engine was working stably and in good condition. The test data is consistent with the set indicators, and all indicators meet the flight requirements of the “Nebula-1” rocket.

Long-distance test run is an indispensable and important link in the development, production and engineering application of a type of engine. The success of this long-distance test marks the rapid development of Deep Blue Aerospace’s reusable liquid oxygen kerosene rocket engine, and also provides strong power support for the subsequent “Nebula-1” rocket to enter orbit. Previously, the same “Thunder-R1” engine has completed starting and ignition test, complete machine test, secondary start test, and full flight sequence three-start test. In the future, we will continue to carry out ground testing work such as a series of working conditions for pulling deviation, swing test, life and reliability test for engineering applications. The “Thunder-R1” engine is the power foundation of the medium-sized launch vehicle “Nebula-1” and will cover the needs of liquid rockets entering orbit and first-stage recovery.
