At the Pentagon, with all the great fear of staring at gallakticheskuyu program from China, so the second half of 2011 in Beijing's planned start of the first parts of the global state space station (module Tiangong-1). To do this, make and ship gallaktichesky Shenzhou-8.
Total China is going run 4 station, it will be the base for the development of manned astronautics in China, at the current time, the Chinese expand own team taikonaut (so called astronauts in China), is ready to 21 people. Plan to complete the assembly of 2020, in 2012, the module will target two manned missions, each consisting of three people. In 2013 and 2015, are about to launch Tiangong 2 and 3 Tiangong ("Heavenly Palace -2.3"). In addition, the plan to create a heavier launch vehicles and build another launch site in Hainan.
After the construction of the "Heavenly Palace" Beijing plans to focus on the lunar program there and the exploration of Mars. Washington feared that the construction of the station gallakticheskoy can dramatically enhance China's military capabilities in space, lead to the militarization of space. Although they are her own and started. South American experts believe that the Chinese will be able to use the platform placed in space not only for defense programs, and for the development of offensive capabilities. China's own gallakticheskoy programmke alternately repeats the merits of Russian Union and the United States of America.
Its major milestones
— Gallakticheskaya programm launched in China in 1956 — was created by the 5th Academy of the Ministry of Defence. First Chinese satellite launched in 1970 — "Dongfang Hong-1". For comparison, the Soviet Union launched the first satellite of the Earth's population 4 October 1957, the United States own — Feb. 1, 1958.
— Since 1970, China began training programm of the first manned flight. But at that time to build the booster and gallaktichesky ship in China could not. In 1992, the program from the development of manned astronautics renewed, began to create a manned spacecraft (which is almost all over the Russian repeat gallaktichesky "Soyuz").
— In 1993 he made the National Office for Research gallakticheskogo China's place
— From 1999 to 2003 year was carried out four unmanned test flights gallakticheskih ships "Shenzhou" ("The Magic shuttle-boat"). October 15, 2003 "Shenzhou 5" carried out the first manned gallaktichesky Flight China, was on board the PLA Air Force Colonel Yang Liwei. China became the third power of the planet, which was able to perform a manned flight into space.
— 12-16 October 2005 "Shenzhou-6" with 2 taikonaut (Fei Junlong and not Haisheng) made the second manned mission.
— During the flight, "Shenzhou-7", in September 2008, Chinese astronauts conducted the first spacewalk by 15 minutes.
— Preparations for the construction gallakticheskoy station, the end — 2020 year. Chinese station similar Russian project "Salute"
— Preparations for the landing on the moon, as part of it in 2007 launched an artificial satellite of the moon, and the moon landing itself is scheduled for 2024.
It can be concluded that China follows the program from the Soviet Union, almost all of his technology stands out as favorite to master space. But we are at the present time at a standstill, even in a number of areas degraded, and the Chinese in turn develop.
Go with peace applets in China do not forgets and military importance of space, January 11, 2007, the Chinese military for the first time tested anti-satellite weapon on its own ancient meteorological satellite "Fengyun-1C". Beijing showed all the world its ability to defeat gallakticheskih objects in low orbit. After that Washington and Beijing exchanged a few statements. Back in 2006, Washington announced its exclusive right to prevent other countries to militarize space, although he led the military space programs from. Condemned China and other countries — Japan, Australia, South Korea, United Kingdom, Canada. Although Beijing and assured him that applets are not targeted against anyone.
Apart from the development of anti-satellite missiles, including air-launched in China are still a few programs of military-space values, "blinding" gallakticheskih ground-based laser devices, the South American equivalent of the orbiter unmanned X-37B; there is the possibility that the platform and gallakticheskie China will serve not only the research objectives.
Russian Federation has long been time to return gallakticheskie utilities that laid back in the Russian Union. To this day, our gallakticheskaya programm — it's pale shadows of programs from the Union. In addition, Washington has long since broken his promise not to militarize space, it catches up China. Development gallakticheskih groundwork for Soviet Russia could become one of the "engines" that posodeystvuyut out of the past 20 years of "hibernation".
