Temple One Shenzhou VIII combination with Schematic (Source: CFP/CNR)
today 1:27, the flight control command from the big screen three-dimensional simulation of the hall to see the animation, rear and side of the spacecraft ejected a few shares of flame. Shenzhou VIII spacecraft parked 30 meters from the point of the Temple I firmly forward, closer to the final.
1 点 28 points, along with the flight control hall applause, Shenzhou VIII spacecraft and aircraft in space Temple One goal in the first contact. Spacecraft docking mechanism lock and capture card board device docking mechanism Temple each bite.
1 点 31 points, two spacecraft docking mechanism successfully capture, docking mechanism through gap junctions, showing the aperture gradually disappeared, the spacecraft and the Temple ever closer, and ultimately flexible connection, Shenzhou八号 spacecraft engine shut down.
1 点 36 points after the exposure, capture buffer, correction, back, and several other moves, the Shenzhou VIII and Temple One docking locking action is completed, the hall of the screen followed by show that combination start control, Shenzhou VIII spacecraft to achieve a zero distance with Temple One of the first “intimate” contact.
Chang Wanquan announced the successful rendezvous and docking flight control hall applause
1 点 43 points, the Central Military Commission, commander of the task length, Minister of the General Armament Department Chang Wanquan officially announced the first Temple One and Shenzhou VIII rendezvous and docking mission success, flight control hall suddenly thunderous applause. Temple and “God eight” This is a beautiful combination of attitude began to travel into space.
always foolproof: According to the Beijing flight control center reporting, and Temple One goal of Shenzhou VIII spacecraft has successfully achieved the first rendezvous and docking, and now I declare, Temple One, Shenzhou VIII made the first rendezvous and docking a complete success!
to build the space station was a key step forward
Shenzhou VIII and the first temple One perfect butt, means that our country after the United States and Russia , and a complete rendezvous and docking technology to master the state, it also allows us to build the space station was a key step forward. So the rendezvous and docking of the successful completion of what it means to our country’s space? The next Temple One and Shenzhou VIII which in turn moves?
first rendezvous and docking experiment is successful, the flight control room in Beijing, researchers face a smile, but they have got out his camera for this wonderful and great moment to leave valuable memories.
So far, the world’s total of spacecraft rendezvous and docking activities 300 times, 17 times the failure, the failure rate of more than 8%, also known as space rendezvous and docking security “gate of hell.” China’s aerospace workers, the task under enormous pressure during the outsiders imagine. Test is successful, they laughed, cried, shouted, enjoy the release of pressure.
Beijing Aerospace Control Center, deputy chief engineer Zhou Jianliang: It should be said that the entire testing process is very exciting, very perfect. Because I am from Shenzhou to include today’s rendezvous and docking, as well as Chang-e I, II, each step is a step forward in China’s space, a cross! It should be said, every success as it is today are so excited.
closely monitor the assembly status 12 days after the re-docking
Zhou Jianliang, deputy chief engineer said that although the Shenzhou and Temple first hand successful, but they work does not end. In the future days, they also perform many of the rest.
Zhou Jianliang: still a lot of work because of the back, including rendezvous and docking achieved today, 12 days after the combination of flight, but also a second rendezvous and docking. Finally, there is little that is, eight with the Temple of God, after the separation, but also safe to return to the ground. It should be said, behind the heavy task. Everyone cheering is over, it is actually present in each room of every post, all our staff on duty, or in closely monitoring the status of this combination.
