Good Luck China... :thumb:
Shenzhou X launched
people cross the nation show their great enthusiasm...
wow....amazing...!! congratulation to chinese....:thumb:
I wish China best of luck. :thumb:
India should also try to become the fourth country (after Russia, US and China) to launch manned mission to space.
a 13'45'' of video covers the whole porcess of SZ-10's lauch today....it's a very interesting popularization of space science for common people ,especially the kids.

@ 03:46 the separation of 4 strap-on boosters and 1st stage
@ 04:44 the separation of the fairing
@ 08:57 the 2nd stage engine turn off
@ 10:47 the separation of spacecraft with the 2nd stage

@shiphone @amoy @t_co @satish007,
Congratulations on becoming the third country to send a manned craft to space!
Space exploration and colonization is the only long-term survival strategy of the human species. Any nation which puts its resources into making this cheaper and more feasible is to be applauded.
it seems that your congraulation comes almost 10 years late, and today's launch is the 10th spacecraft and 5th manned spacecraft
...but anyway ,thank you all for your best wishes.

@shiphone @amoy @t_co @satish007,
Congrats guys. Also, try to do something constructive out there, this time.:thumb:
I heard some unfortunate news about delays in other major space programs, like CZ-5, CZ-7 and Tiangong-2.
Anything you can share with us?

china started with a simple one man mission with 14 orbits of the earth in 2003 - they started small but kept building and now their program and know-how is gaining momentum and beginning to get into the multiplier effect area
in contrast out isro although having made some progress is still having a flexible deadline attitude and hasnt made the initial manned space launch - we are still stuck with 2G spectrum cases , molestation, rape cases on a daily basis and all sorts of mis-management in our public administration - that mentality has to change otherwise we will always be in a class far below china
no doubt this is not all that is happening in india - there is lots of progress being made in every area .- but the lesson we have to learn from reality is that the progress we indeed ARE making is unfortunately not quite enough - and it's not just because we are unfortunate enough to have china as a neighbour, the competition , especially in these high tech areas has no geographical definition, it is global - it affects the usa as much as it does india .
so what progress are we making regarding our manned space program ..... im not condemning it - but are we making sufficient progress ? - because one of our guiding principles should be that we cant afford to lag too far behind china - everything they do, especially in this area of space technology has a military aspect to it, and they will use it on the ground to leverage advantage - whether in Aksai Chin or Arunachal ...... they might race so far ahead as to be able to do another 1962 on us - not at all inconceivable imho !
we have to keep the gap at a reasonable size to be able to close it without too much difficulty in terms of finance and technology if we really need to - but at this rate with them racing ahead and our isro having a slower pace , the concern is that they may leave us too far behind
@shiphone, @t_co, I heard that it was China's fifth manned flight, so I am sorry
We Asians are proving to the almighty arrogant west that they aren't the only ones with brains
Money, my friend, the only which does matter in this so called "race" is: Chinese scientists got far more money than their indian counterpart.
No, USA is only feeling nervous about the possibility that China may threat its dominance in one day. On the other hand, India is facing a fact: it is not winning in its race against China.
Well, my friend, you just think too high about India's importance in Chinese strategy: India is not even in top list of threats.
The difficulty was and will always be FINANCE.

Shenzhou-10 completes automated docking with space module........two space docking was planned,this was the first one...
Astronauts of Shenzhou-10 spacecraft enter Tiangong-1 space module
Is that a liquid fuelled rocket?
yes...CZ-2,3 ,4 serial(Long March 2,3,4 serial) are all all-liquid fuelled rockets.
and the next Generation Long March family would have an all-solid fuel Rocket CZ11(LM11,Long March 11) along with the CZ-5,6,7,9 which would be all liquid fueled rockets...CZ11 is the planned to take off in 2014.
the first launch of CZ-5 which was planned in 2014 might split to year 2015-16 , the another importand model CZ-7 might be delayed as well. from year 2014 to 2015...CZ-7 would lift the next space lab (Tian Gong-2 ,TG-2, around 13 tons vs TG1's 8.5 tons) into space. the delay of CZ-7 might affect the TG-2 project.
in the first years of 21 century , a solid fueled KT-1 was also developped.
another model based on DF31 is KT-2 serial ...but no launch record so far
KT-1A ,KT-1 and KT-2
