The China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation stated that the Long March 5B Yao-4 carrier rocket passed the factory review on August 12, and completed all the pre-delivery work according to the requirements of the development process. Product functions, and performance To meet the flight mission requirements, the rocket development meets the requirements of all levels of factory release criteria, meets the factory conditions, and is ready to carry out the launch mission of the Mengtian experimental module of the Chinese space station.
The second experimental module of the Chinese space station, the Mengtian experimental module, will be launched in October. After the Mengtian experimental module is launched, it will eventually form a T-shaped configuration with the Tianhe core module and the Wentian experimental module, which also marks the completion of the National Space Laboratory.
After that, my country will also implement the launch of the Tianzhou-5 cargo spacecraft and the Shenzhou-15 manned spacecraft. Among them, the flight crew of the Shenzhou 15 manned spacecraft consists of 3 astronauts. After they complete the on-orbit rotation with the Shenzhou 14 astronaut crew, they will work and live in orbit for 6 months.
The Mengtian experimental module has completed all the research and development work before leaving the factory and has recently arrived at the Wenchang Space Launch Site. In the follow-up, the Mengtian experimental module will carry out various final assembly and testing work in the launch site area as planned. At present, the facilities and equipment of the launch site are in good condition, and the systems participating in the test are preparing for various tasks in an orderly manner.
At present, the facilities and equipment of the launch site are in good condition, and the systems participating in the test are preparing for various tasks in an orderly manner. In the future, the Mengtian experimental module will complete the docking with the core module of the Chinese space station and become an integral part of the "Tiangong" space station. By then, the construction of the Chinese space station will be completed with the Tianhe core module, Wentian experimental module and Mengtian experimental module as the basic configuration, which marks a major progress in my country's aerospace field.
