We also upgraded our control on the return trip, which means we will further improve the accuracy of the landing point, and at the same time make sure the astronauts can withstand the impact."

Storyline


China's new-generation manned spacecraft is ready for a test launch, said the China Manned Space Engineering Office on Monday.

A test ship arrived safely at south China's Wenchang Space Launch Center on Monday. The orbit height of the test flight will be about 8,000 kilometers, a height never reached by China's Shenzhou series manned spacecraft. The higher orbit brings a greater challenge to the structure and heat-resistant performance of the new spacecraft.

"The new spacecraft uses new heat-resistant material and structure, which is only a third in density compared to the Shenzhou spacecraft, but the heat resistance is three to four times greater. We also upgraded our control on the return trip, which means we will further improve the accuracy of the landing point, and at the same time make sure the astronauts can withstand the impact," said Huang Zhen, chief assistant designer of the new manned spacecraft.

The test ship will be launched by the Long March-5B rocket. There will also be verification on a new landing method using grouped parachutes and airbags, as well as reusability-related technologies.

At the same time, as the Long March-5B rocket will also be used in the future launch of space station, the test launch also serves as a preliminary verification for the space station project.

"We will use the Long March-5B rocket to launch the space station, which weighs 22 tons. So we will use the weight as a standard for the test launch, using nearly 10 tons of propellant," said Yang Qing, chief designer of the new manned spacecraft.

The test launch is an unmanned launch. The research team will evaluate and analyze the state of the spacecraft after its return. After verifying the key technologies, it will move on to the development and functional verification of the entire system, and prepare for manned flight.
