    Goodbye Tiangong-2

    http://www.xinhuanet.com/english/201..._138241415.htm

    China's space lab Tiangong-2 reentered the earth's atmosphere under control at around 9:06 p.m. on Friday (Beijing time), China Manned Space Agency (CMSA) said.

    A small amount of the spacecraft's debris fell into the predetermined safe sea area in the South Pacific, according to the agency.

    Tiangong-2's controlled reentry into the atmosphere marks the successful completion of all the tasks in the space lab phase in China's manned space program, said Zhou Jianping, chief designer of China's manned space program.

    "Chinese scientists say goodbye to Tiangong-2, expecting space station"

    http://www.xinhuanet.com/english/201..._138241520.htm

    After helping scientists complete many significant experiments such as growing rice and vegetables in space, observing the strongest explosions in the universe and setting up the most precise clock in space, China's first space lab Tiangong-2 ended its mission and reentered the atmosphere under control Friday night (Beijing Time).

    With deep attachment, Chinese scientists recalled the experience of participating in the design and implementation of the space experiments on Tiangong-2 and also looked forward to more frontier research on China's future space station.

    One of the experiments to be conducted in the Chinese Space Station is from Norway and it is headed by a Canadian women. It is called “Tumours in Space,”.

    Can weightlessness stop cancer from growing? One of the nine research projects that has been given the go-ahead for the new China Space Station scheduled for 2022 is designed to answer this exact question.

    The unique laboratory conditions offered by the International Space Station and the to-be-launched China Space Station (CSS) allow for research on everything from ultrasound diagnostics in microgravity to studies of crystal growth.

    Now, when the China Space Station is ready to begin research projects around 2022, it will include an unusual cancer research project called “Tumours in Space,” headed by a Canadian researcher based in Norway. The project will examine the roles of both microgravity and cosmic radiation in tumour growth and development.

    Not only is the project one of just nine selected by the United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs (UNOOSA) and the China Manned Space Agency (CMSA) under their programme to provide scientists from all over the world with the opportunity to fly experiments on the CSS, it is the only one among the 9 selected that is headed by a woman.

    "China begins tests for launch of space station module on Long March-5B rocket"

    https://www.scmp.com/news/china/scie...-long-march-5b

    China will press on with work on a permanent space station after the core module and carrier rocket for the vehicle arrived at the launch site for rehearsals and preparation, the developer said on Tuesday.

    The Tianhe module was recently transported to the Wenchang Satellite Launch Centre on the southern Chinese island of Hainan for three months of trials with a Long March-5B rocket, the China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation (CASC) said on its WeChat social media account.

    The trials were designed to simulate the launch procedure, test the rocket and the operation of the module, with the goal of “laying a solid foundation for the formal mission”.

    "Construction of China's space station about to start"

    http://www.xinhuanet.com/english/202..._138801887.htm

    The maiden flight of the Long March-5B rocket carrying a trial version of China's new-generation manned spaceship is expected to take place in April, indicating the imminent start of construction of China's space station.

    The rocket, the prototype core capsule of the space station and the experimental manned spaceship are undergoing tests at the Wenchang Space Launch Center on the coast of south China's island province of Hainan.

    During the flight in mid to late April, the experimental manned spaceship will be sent into space with no crew. The prototype of the core capsule of the space station will not be launched.

    "China Space Station – is it worth it?"

    https://westeastspace.com/2020/03/30...s-it-worth-it/

    Based on the experience of the USSR and China, the main reasons why space leaders and countries that claim to become ones invest huge amounts of money in the construction of space stations can be identified. Once again, let us list and prioritize them:

    Military advantage is a practice-oriented goal, which is aimed at ensuring national security. As a rule, it serves as an impetus to start developing manned programs.
    Prestige and political influence is an important goal, its effect is quite obvious, although it is hard to estimate in quantitative terms. It allows politicians to gain the support of the population and strengthen the position of the state on the world arena.
    Progress in science and technology is a long-term goal that allows significant breakthroughs in many fields of science, from basic physics and astronomy to medicine and information technology. Very often, technological developments that were initially applied in a space station are later applied in other fields.
    The platform for international cooperation is an even more long-term goal, which allows for more effective implementation of the state’s foreign policy. To achieve this goal, a more advanced level of development of manned programs is required, at a minimum, the existence of its own multi-module station.

    The biggest reason for China to develop anything in space is today economic. The rest of the stuff the author states is mostly nonsense from a few decades ago.

    "Three types of rockets to shoulder construction of China's space station"

    https://www.spacedaily.com/reports/T...ation_999.html

    China's new large carrier rocket Long March-5B made its maiden flight on Tuesday, sending the trial version of China's new-generation manned spaceship and a cargo return capsule for test into space.

    The successful flight inaugurated the "third step" of China's manned space program, which is to construct a space station, said the China Manned Space Agency (CMSA). After a successful maiden flight, China's Long March-5B carrier rocket joins the Long March-2F and Long March-7 to shoulder the construction of China's space station.

    "More details of China's space station unveiled"

    http://www.xinhuanet.com/english/202..._139066005.htm

    After the successful maiden flight of the Long March-5B large rocket and the testing of China's new-generation manned spaceship, more details of China's space station have been unveiled.

    The space station, expected to be completed around 2022, will operate in the low-Earth orbit at an altitude from 340 km to 450 km for more than 10 years, supporting large-scale scientific, technological and application experiments, according to a report in the People's Daily.

    The space station Tiangong, meaning Heavenly Palace, will be able to accommodate three astronauts in normal circumstances and up to six during a crew replacement.

    The station will be a T shape with the core module at the center and a lab capsule on each side. Each of the modules will be over 20 tonnes, with the total mass of the station about 66 tonnes, said Zhou Jianping, chief designer of China's manned space program.

    "China outlines intense space station launch schedule, new astronaut selection"

    https://spacenews.com/china-outlines...aut-selection/

    China is preparing to carry out 11 missions in two years to construct a space station and will soon select a new batch of astronauts for the project.

    The first module for the Chinese space station will launch next year, said Zhou Jianping, chief designer of China’s human spaceflight program, on the sidelines of a political conference in Beijing Tuesday.

    Launch of the Tianhe core module on a Long March 5B could take place at Wenchang in early 2021. This will be followed by a crewed Shenzhou flight, from Jiuquan, and a Tianzhou cargo mission. The first of two experiment modules will then launch for docking with Tianhe.

    In total 11 launches will be conducted to complete the construction of the space station by around 2023, Zhou said (Chinese). These will be the launch of the core and two experiment modules, as well as four crewed spacecraft and four cargo spacecraft.

    The intensive launch plan was revealed following the successful test flight of the Long March 5B heavy-lift rocket May 5. The missions will be conducted using Long March 5B, Long March 2F and Long March 7 launch vehicles.
