Read Time:2 Minute, 21 Second

China is ready to send three astronauts to its new space station. According to the country’s space agency, on Thursday morning, they will be dispatched from the space ship Shenzhou-12 to Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center. They will stay there for about three months. Ji Qiming, the assistant to the director of China’s Mend Space Agency, gave this information during the press conference. According to him, those leaving for space include Ni Hesheng, Liu Boming, and Teng Hongbo. All three are going there to build the space station being built in China’s space. China is sending its first manned mission on the occasion of the centenary of the ruling Communist Party of China. Upon entry into orbit, the space ship will meet the Space Station’s core module Tianhe.

China is going to use the Long March 2F carrier rocket for its first manned mission. Refueling work has started in it. Significantly, China started the construction of its space station’s core module Tianhe on 29 April. China wants to equip this space station with new technology through different missions in the coming two. This space station is currently under construction but by the end of this year, this station will be ready. Yang Livi, director of China’s Mend Space Engineering Office, which went to space in October 2003 from the Shinju-5 craft, says that the first three months the astronauts will spend three months there and carry out various tasks. These include the repair and maintenance of the station. By the time this space station is built, China plans to send 11 space missions by next year.

This includes four cargo space ships, four manned missions for three modules. Yang says that in this mission, the astronauts will go out of the cabin and do the construction mission, the maintenance of the spacecraft. Gradually, all this work will be brought into the daily routine and their time will also be increased. This space station of China also has a robotic arm, to which the US had objected that all this is being done to carry out military operations. This robotic arm is about 15 meters long, which can be used for various purposes.
Zhou Jianping, the lead designer of China’s Mend Space Engineering Project, says astronauts will help build the station with robotic arms there. They will also use it during maintenance as per the need. US Command Commander James Dickinson says that China is bent on carrying out such a mission to capture satellites of other countries in the future. According to him, America’s concern about this is natural. He also says that China is constantly competing with America in space. Let us tell you that the International Space Station includes NASA of America, Roscosmos of Russia, JAXA of Japan, European Space Agency, and Space Agency of Canada.
