At present, the technical state of the systems tested properly, the interface between systems coordination, ground tests fully exercise all kinds of plans in place, the flight product and launch site facilities and equipment are in good condition, meet mission requirements.
中广网 Beijing on October 31, according to Voice of China “CNR News” reported that the Central Broadcasting News, the first comment, the Voice of China Cao Lin observer of these events made the following comments:
Cao Lin: It should be said that the significance of this launch Shenzhou VIII is very important, as just said, it is the future of China’s manned space flight, the formation of large manned space station and even a leap of key technologies, There was an expert to do a very vivid metaphor, that the process of rendezvous and docking in space like a go-between: first, put a needle in a space, then a line across hundreds of kilometers through the eye of a needle. It is very difficult, a few days before the launch of the temple at only half the battle, only to complete the follow-up rendezvous and docking that we can breathe, the Shenzhou VIII is to complete this critical task.
Temple One After launch, the media has been concerned about the Shenzhou VIII when launched, but we can not feel the public has when Shenzhou V Shenzhou VI launch, when the enthusiasm had poured so high-pitched, or that it did not go over-emphasize the significance of emission, such as national pride, the rise of great powers, the nation’s self-confidence, sense of honor, with dreams of national glory. But it seems very calm and peaceful to see this launch. If the report carefully, we rarely see in this report are as proud to honor such words.
I think this is a step forward, not to say that the significance of launching the Shenzhou VIII larger than before, but that we Chinese people look at the development of this technology have a more peaceful state of mind, which shows mature technology, and national mentality are mature, we Chinese people have seen the world, and all have made no small achievement, not very eager to prove anything by these outsiders. We have a lot of good things, we have a better demand, we have emboldened the Americans, the Russians launched the international space station for our red carpet welcome. As in the past we do not calm or so much emphasis on the significance of it to boost national pride is a big country in the growth of the normal state of mind. And may launch this rather special, because the risk is relatively high, the experts also introduced, like the early manned space abroad a lot of failures occurred with the accident, it is also our concern to the peaceful work space decompression, for the launch to create a good media atmosphere.
