长征十号 At 22nd  23rd July  2023 Hong Kong SAR- Beijing time , China- People’s Republic of China- CNSA –China National Space Administration   Successfully Carrier Rocket  engine tested for the New Next Generation Chang Zheng – Long March 10 Manned Lunar mission landing Carrier rocket freighter The main engine of China’s manned lunar landing rocket Long March 10 completed another ignition test run yesterday, which verified all the requirements of the rocket mission for the engine, and provided strong support for the solidification of the engine’s technical status, the establishment of product technology baselines, and the improvement of reliability.

The engine used in this test run uses advanced liquid oxygen kerosene as fuel, which is improved and iterated from the high-thrust liquid oxygen kerosene engine used by the new generation of launch vehicles such as the active Long March 5, with a thrust of 130 tons.

The reporter learned from China Aerospace Science and Technology Group Co., Ltd. on July 23 that the main engine of my country’s manned moon landing rocket was tested in the Fengzhou Test Area of ​​the Sixth Academy of Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation, and achieved continuous success. This test run verified the engine flight mission profile, and provided strong support for the solidification of the engine technical state, the establishment of the product technical baseline, and the improvement of reliability.

The engine is the power source of the rocket, and its development process is very complicated. Test run is an important link in the engine development process, and there are dozens of types. In layman’s terms, engine test run is the process of igniting the engine and verifying the rationality of its design scheme and process reliability. This is an indispensable and important part of the development and delivery of a type 1 engine. It will run through all stages before and after engine development. Each stage of test run has different meanings, and the ignition time varies from a few seconds to hundreds of seconds.

It is reported that the engine used in this test run uses advanced liquid oxygen kerosene as fuel, which is improved and iterated from the high-thrust liquid oxygen kerosene engine used by the new generation of launch vehicles such as the Long March 5. The thrust reaches 130 tons. The R&D team of the Sixth Academy of Aerospace Science and Technology Group adheres to the concept of digital design, and has successively overcome key technical problems such as engine start-up and shutdown sequence, engine wide-range continuously variable thrust, and engine long life and high reliability.

In addition, the continuous success of the test run has fully verified the reliability of a number of new carrying process technologies. The engine production of this test run adopts the concept of intelligent manufacturing, and actively applies new materials, new processes, and new technologies. The inner wall of the thrust chamber of the core component adopts a new protective coating, key assemblies adopt automatic welding technology, and a large number of components adopt 3D printing technology.

During the preparation of the engine test run, the participants in the research and test conducted tests and verifications on each subsystem of the test through comprehensive means such as digital modelling, simulation calculation, and system debugging. The successful test run shows that the test area has greatly improved the multi-station parallel test run capability and test efficiency by optimizing the workflow.

#RocketLab #火箭實驗室 |#LC1 #LaunchComplexOne #MahiaPeninsula a Tour of the first launch complex of an American Carrier Rocket company that’s based in #NorthIsland #NewZealand introductory for #RunningOutOfFingers …


An American – New Zealand based Carrier Rocket company Rocket lab in which it’s preparations for an launch of 25th November 2019  in which is bound to be launched from the eastern coast of North Island New Zealand from its Mahia Peninsula Launch complex one launch for the late February calendar.. In which it’ll be position in a LEO –Low Earth Orbital position… In which its launch time is unknown to be announce Running Out of Fingers….   Also featuring the next generation’s series of the Electron 3D printed booster rocket engine for its tenth launched…

Launching featuring Electron Carrier Rocket with its carbon fibre fuselage with its next generation 3D printed engine.. is this mission will carry deployment of several Commercial Small Satellites  into its designated orbit in which the Next Generation Electron Engine is designed to be used as Reusable for the Reusable first Staging Carrier Rocket in  which is test driving for any lessons learn towards full commercially of a cost effective reusable carrier rocket..

Located on the Mahia Peninsula on New Zealand’s East Coast, LC-1 is the best spot in the world to launch more frequently than anywhere else on the planet. In which is launch range is thirty nine degrees south latitude in which launching at SSO –Sun Synchronous Orbit … in which Amanda Stiles, Director of Mission Management and Integration, in which the Hanger has crew of fifty personal to provide launch engineering..  In which the whole electron rocket comes together in construction from various locations manufactured in New Zealand also its American partners coming together at the Mount Wellington complex in Auckland New Zealand… in which testing the components before launch towards the Mahia Peninsula LC1..

In which the final process of the payload it is tested in the Clean room in where it’s integrated into the kick stage with the payload flaring then it’s installed towards the carrier rocket then towards the launch complex in where it’s controlled a mission controlled in Auckland ….

As exciting preparations underway in New Zealand’s north island west coast line in Mahia Peninsula   on 22nd May 2017, with the launched window at in between 0900 to 2000 hours New Zealand Time..  in which this is the first commercial company in New Zealand in joining the Space industry in the provisions of providing affordable unique launch carriers … in which in its Home-grown Uniqueness is New Zealand Made comes to  mind is Rocket Lab..

As the building up to the to the launch window,  various launch complex sites was considered in various parts of New Zealand in which gives a suited launch location Mahia Peninsula was chosen  to be the newly acquired first launch complex for Rocket lab’s carbon fibre hulling rocket  the Electron.. In which stands at seventeen meters long, that’s half the length of a Captain Jean Luc Picard’s Sovereign Class Captain’s Yacht in which sits at 33.5 meters long.…. in which can carry up to a 150 kilogram payload.. with an altitude range of  500 kilometers..

The home grown Rocket Lab’s Electron rocket comes with many New Zealand made innovations, in the hulling shell of the rocket is made out from durable Carbon fibre with its innovative home grown clustered Rutherford Oxygen-Kerosene 3D printed Engines in which akin to the same design linage to the Soyuz, SpaceX, Blue Origin engine clustering…. The Electron is interesting innovative it’s takes many elements of Plug and Payload in which the payload make it easier to install at the Assembly building facilities. .   then readily install on the launch complex launcher ramp on the same design elements like the Russian’s Soyuz’s, Space X  in which there’s been some interesting challenges in building the launch complex from the ground up but with the team that thinks innovatively like Admiral Montgomery Christopher Jorgensen “Scotty” Scott Chief engineer of the constitutional class Enterprise they can’t go wrong..….
