Hao Chun, director of the China Manned Space Office, announced that the core module is the most important and critical section of the entire space station. The construction of the space station is the third step of China's three-step strategy for manned space flight. According to China's space station construction plan, a manned space station will be built within two years, with the core module as the control center and the Qintian and Mengtian experimental modules as the main experimental platforms.
The core module and the core module of China's first space station have completed in-orbit tests during the single-module flight stage, and the subsequent launches of the spacecraft and modules will be carried out as planned, it said.
Within two years, China's space station will be built with the core module as the control center and the Wentian and Mengtian experimental modules as the main experimental platforms, all under the constant care of people. In two years' time, each module will be in orbit to "build building blocks" to form a Chinese space station.
The combination of the Tianzhou-2 cargo spacecraft and the Long March 7-3 carrier rocket was transferred to the launch area on May 16, IT Home has learned. The China Manned Space Engineering Office said at the time that the facilities and equipment at the launch site were in good condition and that pre-launch functional inspections and joint tests would be carried out as planned.
Previously, Hao Chun, director of the China Manned Space Engineering Office, said that the Tianzhou-2 cargo spacecraft is scheduled to be launched in May 2021 and the Shenzhou-12 manned spacecraft in June. The Shenzhou XII will carry a crew of three and stay in orbit for three months.
