On August 20th, the Long March 2D carrier rocket successfully launched the 04 satellites of Remote Sensing 35 with one arrow and three stars, marking the 103 consecutive successful launches of China’s Long March series of carrier rockets, breaking the previous record of 102. And it only took 2 years and 3 months.
This is the 62nd flight of the Changerding rocket, and the launch success rate is 100%.
At the same time, the Aerospace Science and Technology Group revealed that my country is currently developing a new generation of manned launch vehicles and heavy launch vehicles (the legendary Long March 9), which will undertake missions such as manned moon landing, Mars exploration, Jupiter exploration, and asteroid exploration .
Among them, a new generation of manned launch vehicles will have the ability to send Chinese people to the moon around 2030.
The Moon Transfer Orbit launch capacity of the heavy launch vehicle will be increased to 50 tons to support lunar development activities.
In addition, the Aerospace Science and Technology Group is accelerating the research and development of reusable launch vehicle technology. The current planning of a series of reusable space transportation systems development work will greatly improve my country’s ability to enter space, reduce the cost of entering space, and help the future of space transportation. develop.
Just on August 5, my country publicly announced that the Long March 2F carrier rocket successfully launched a reusable test spacecraft, which returned to the domestic scheduled landing site after operating in orbit for a period of time. And in-orbit service technology verification, to provide technical support for the peaceful use of space.
As early as September 4, 2020, also at the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center, the same Long March 2F carrier rocket also successfully launched a reusable test spacecraft.
You thought this was over? Aerospace Science and Technology Group is also researching smart rocket technology, so that the rocket itself has fault diagnosis and autonomous flight capabilities, and realizes the leap from the traditional automatic flight according to the flight program to the autonomous flight.
Every time a rocket is launched, there will be thousands of fault plans, and the new generation of fault diagnosis and disposal system being developed allows the rocket to not only actively find faults, but also analyze and locate faults by itself, and then automatically take targeted measures. Disposal measures.
