large screen display Shenzhou VIII and Temple One docking success (Zhongguang Wang reporter Liu Mengshe)
中广网 Beijing on November 3 news at 10 o’clock on the 3rd, the State Information Office held a press conference, China’s manned space press statement Wu Ping Temple One person/Shenzhou VIII rendezvous and docking of the situation.
Ping Wu, said this morning, 01 hours 36 minutes, 30 laps in the orbit of Shenzhou VIII spacecraft in orbit and circle the temple One goal of 541 aircraft, ground level at a distance of 343 km of track on the successful implementation of the rendezvous and docking, two spacecraft to achieve rigid connections to form a combination. Combination of aircraft flight controls by the target, the spacecraft is docked. At present, the combination has been flying around the Earth nearly six laps, the equipment is working properly, the in-orbit testing progress.
Wu Ping said, Shenzhou VIII spacecraft in at 5:58:07 on November 1, 2011 at the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center Long March II-F away from the eight rocket launch, the rocket ship rocket flight 583 seconds separation, the spacecraft entered the preset orbit. After the Shenzhou VIII, respectively, in the first five laps flight, the first 13 laps, 16 laps, 19 laps and 24 laps to implement the maneuver, with Temple One to enter into the orbital plane in the same orbit rendezvous and docking. Shenzhou VIII flight first 28 laps, 117 km away from Temple One, the two aircraft to establish the relative navigation, the relative distance of 52 kilometers, Beijing at 23:08 on November 2, Shenzhou VIII into the self-control. Measuring equipment in the intersection, guided, Shenzhou VIII spacecraft After 55 minutes of flight, four sub-orbital maneuver, reached No. 5 km from the temple parking spots; continue the flight 85 minutes, two spacecraft docking mechanism came into contact, during the Shenzhou八号 One Temple at a distance of 400 meters, 140 meters, 30 meters from the parking location for the intersection of precision control and measurement equipment status confirmation. After 8 minutes, the docking mechanism to complete the capture buffer correction, back and four locking process, Beijing early this morning 01 hours 36 minutes, the two spacecraft to achieve a rigid connection eventually form a combination, rendezvous and docking to complete.
