First November NIGHT MODE China made the next step in the development of gallakticheskogo place. With the launch site, located in the Gobi Desert, carrier rocket "Changzheng-2F ', whose task is to derive gallakticheskogo unmanned spaceship" Shengzhou-8. " Earth orbit "Holy canoe", and specifically wrong with the Chinese title translates gallakticheskogo drone waiting prototype of the future space station with a more impressive title "Heavenly palace-1" ("Tangun-1"). The very "bridal chamber" is in Earth orbit since the end of September.
Having made several maneuvers in near space, "Changzheng-2F" successfully docked with the "Tangunu-1" on the night of last Thursday. This event was covered by Chinese media fanfare. Favorite of China, who was at that time in Cannes, congratulated those involved in solving the problem of unmanned launch vehicle, and the whole civilization be successfully global scale. It must be said that the Chinese associate with "Tangunom-1" harsh perspective. It is planned that the current operation of the "palace" will begin in 2020, the year. With all this end the use of the ISS orbit is planned for 2028 year. It turns out that for 8 years "Tangun-1" can pass the required "run" and will be fully able to change the ISS. The Chinese, at least for now, are not going to restrict access to its future space station and even argue about its likely use as a base for the implementation of the latest programs from the study of the Moon. These words, of course, have a hidden subtext, showing the world, and to be clear, the United States, the openness of the "Chinese cosmos." The very creation of the "Tanguna-1" began after the Americans expressed their reluctance to allow the Chinese side to operate Internatsionalnaya gallakticheskoy station — turns out it is not so, and international, as was stated at the beginning. His position, the United States tied with the likely introduction of the ISS as part of the Chinese military applets.
As stated by China, Today flight "Shengzhou-8" will allow work principles automatic docking. It is planned that the connections will be a series. First, which has already taken place, is designed to be so during the 12-day ship and the prototype stations were built in the state. At the end of the designated period "Shengzhou-8" in the automatic mode will have to undock from the "palace" and withdraw from it at a distance of about 140 meters. The subsequent step — re-docking test, and once again flying in the installed state (2 days). Return capsule to Earth Chinese are going to the middle of November.
This repeated rehearsal due to the fact that in the future, the China plans to launch two gallakticheskih ship immediately, with one of the ships will be manned. Shangan Cheng, who is the director of the Center space (or, more correctly read, taykunavtiki), says that the team is selected for the flight. With all of this for the first time in its history China enters into the team and the lady. Taykunavty, namely the so-called China's own space explorers, is currently being trained to implement the docking of ships in the manual mode.
We can state that China decided independently to go through all the stages of space exploration. Although a lot of spices in the world tend to believe that some secrets gallakticheskoy programs from Celestial acquired from the Soviet Union and Russia. Even the assembly "Shengzhou" quite similar to the assembly of the Russian "Soyuz": the same orbital, service, engine compartments and crew capsule. The only difference — a few huge size. But the world is global and the fact, that the secrets crook migrated from one laboratory to another. The point here is not that. The main focus lies in the fact of the PRC on the implementation of large-scale project of its own in space, which is quite secure for the state status
The very same gallakticheskaya programm China started quite a long time. Back in the 50's, as noted by the Chinese themselves, started work on the probable development of the cosmos. In 1970, was put into orbit the first satellite of China. 33 years China honorably met the return of the first Chinese taykunavta. Already China ahead of the global average characteristics luck gallakticheskih starts. Specifically, in this regard, our homeland has become a noticeable lag behind China in connection with its recent poor starts.
The fact remains that China willing and able to be competitive in the space.
