Storyline


As technology and innovation have long played a key role in China's reform and opening up, the past four decades have witnessed huge progress made in China's space industry. Experts said more young talents will be needed in China's space industry and it will also generate more global collaboration.

The successive completion of missions indicates that 2018 will be a year of extraordinary significance for China's aerospace development. The highly acclaimed Chang'e 4 mission is likely to make China the world's first country to soft-land on the far side of the moon. Former China National Space Administrator Luan Enjie said four decades of space success came about through hard work and a collaborative managing system.

"There are now 300,000 people working for China's space industry. We can say that several generations of people have worked hard to form a whole set of experiences, methods, rules and systems for systematic engineering management when we conducted research on models. This is a unique spirit of China's aerospace industry," said Luan Enjie, former administrator, China National Space Administration.

In 2003, Yang Liwei conducted China's first manned mission on the Shenzhou 5 spacecraft. Five years later, Zhai Zhigang carried out a historic spacewalk via the Shenzhou 7. When Chang'e-1 captured China's first picture of the moon, it kicked off the nation's three-stage moon mission.

"We must be independent and self-reliant, for high technologies can't be bought or requested from other countries. We can only develop high technologies with our own efforts. With the reform and opening-up policy, we should narrow the gap and pay attention to important concepts and ideas," said Luan.

This kind of spirit is expected to be passed on to the next generation of engineers and scientists in the space industry .

"As we are moving towards an increasingly high-end and advanced society, I think the main requirement for the new generation in the space industry is that first of all you must have more comprehensive professional knowledge. For example, you must have knowledge about computers, knowledge about mechanical automation, and knowledge about electromagnetic wave," said Liu Peng, assistant monitoring engineer, Xichang Satellite Launch Center.

As international cooperation around China's space program gathers pace and many youngsters dream of exploring outer space, more talented and creative young engineers will be needed to join the space industry.

Besides, China has helped many countries launch their commercial satellites. The Fengyun weather satellites provide meteorological and maritime services for dozens of countries and regions. China's Beidou Navigation Satellites system is expected to go global around 2020. Looking ahead, China plans to build its own space station and to launch its program to land on the Mars.

"There's an intent clearly to look at a lunar mission, as well as a lunar base, also look at further development onto Mars and Marshal Programs. So cooperation is essential in terms of space science and space development, and we will look to work closely with our CNSA colleagues on that," said Arfan Chaudhry, head of international policy, UK Space Agency.
