Storyline


During China's 13th Five-Year Plan period (2016-2020) for space infrastructure construction, the nation's manned space project has registered significant progress on space laboratory flight missions and in space station development and construction, with the project entering the comprehensive implementation stage.

Currently, the entire project is in preparation for the space station construction, and in striving to complete the plan for on-orbit construction around 2022, to get things ready for the subsequent projects of on-orbit operation of the space station in a long term.

China's new large carrier rocket Long March-5B made its maiden flight at 18:00 on May 5, 2020 at the Wenchang Satellite Launch Center, sending the trial version of China's new-generation manned spaceship into space.

The maiden flight mission was operated successfully, laying an important foundation for the orbit construction mission of China's space station.

"In the two years from next year to the year after that, 11 missions will be conducted to complete the on-orbit construction of the Chinese space station. Subsequent missions will be carried out in high density. Astronauts will stay in orbit for long periods and carry out larger-scale space science experiments and technical experiments," said Hao Chun, director of the China Manned Space Engineering Office.

During the 13th Five-Year Plan period, the Long March 7 carrier rocket, the Tiangong-2 space laboratory, the Shenzhou-11 manned spacecraft and the Tianzhou-1 cargo spacecraft were successfully launched one after another under China's ambitious manned space program.

"We have also been actively and steadily advancing this work in accordance with our plan and steps. So far, we have made comprehensive breakthroughs in the development of key technologies. Next year, we will start the third step of manned spaceship project that is the full execution of the space station construction," said Zhou Jianping, chief designer of China's manned space program.

China started the full-range development of its space station 10 years ago.

After the Long March-5B rocket was transferred to Wenchang Satellite Launch Center, the engineers ran full trials for the systems of the core capsule, spaceship, launch site and astronauts, which thoroughly assessed the correctness of the space station system.

"The present is the most crucial period for the development of the core capsule. Now, we are intensively conducting various ground-based experiments and tests to ensure that we can effectively identify risks, control the quality of the products, control risks, and solve problems in the ground-based development," said Yang Hong, chief designer of China's space station system with the China Academy of Space Technology.

According to plan, the Tianhe core module, Wentian experimental module and Mengtian experimental module will be launched one after another to form the basic structure of the space station in orbit.

During the period, China will also launch four Shenzhou manned spacecrafts and four Tianzhou cargo spacecrafts, to facilitate the astronaut crew rotation and cargo replenishment.

"This is our first time to build such a big space ship in line with the principle of steadiness, reliability and safety. After our core module is in orbit, we will launch cargo spacecraft and manned spacecraft one after another. We will further test our key technologies of the space station, including further verification of the technologies for the astronauts' extravehicular activities," said Zhou Jianping.

Since March 2017, astronaut training has officially entered the mission preparation stage for the space station.

As the duration of each mission is about three to six months, higher requirements have been raised for the astronauts' physical and mental qualities, knowledge, and emergency response capabilities.

"We have arranged for astronauts to participate in nearly a hundred engineering development and experimental activities, including man-spaceship, man-spaceship-ground, and man-spaceship-station-ground joint tests, underwater verification experiments for extravehicular activities, and efficacy evaluations," said Huang Weifen, chief designer of China Astronaut Research and Training Center.

So far, all crews of astronauts designated to perform the four missions during the space station construction phase have been selected and confirmed. The training for the missions is currently underway.

"We have comprehensively considered many factors including the astronauts’ flight experience, current situation, their ages and psychological compatibility, and subsequent development. Then, we have collectively coordinated four flight crews, with each crew consisting of three people, and the astronauts who had performed flight missions were assigned as commanders," said Huang.

On Oct 1, the third batch of 18 selected astronauts joined the astronaut team, including seven space pilots, seven space flight engineers, and four load experts.

They are expected to participate in various missions during the operation phase of the space station.

So far, the development of the core cabins of China's space station is in smooth progress. The scientists are developing the application system for the scientific experiment facilities on the space station and working on the demonstration of the application theory during the operation phase.
