It is just one of the massive technical erros that happened in Chinese inefficient state media.

But it is not surprising that these transcripts were ready for the press before the launch even happened. During an important mission like this, what cosmonauts would say and do has been fixed way before the mission began. It is just like a procedure, they must follow it.
You can't watch that YouTube video which makes things a lot more plausible than transcripts. Hence we can't argue any further on that.

Time has already shown they lied about the first space walk. Honestly, the videos inside the SHENZHOU capsules look faked as well. The audio on them doesn't sound like they are in space and all they do is flip around those stupid script books.

Wooo!!!!

How do you get the truth on that? Why didn't the NASA and other countries tell the truth?

Guy, its already been shown the transcript of the spacewalk was released BEFORE they even left the launch pad. Fake and more fakery...

China plans to build its own space station by 2020


China plans to build its own space station by 2020 :: Brahmand.com

BEIJING (PTI): China plans to set up its orbital space station by 2020, country's first astronaut has said, even as it has stepped up efforts to launch an unmanned unit to conduct docking tests.

Both manned and unmanned spacecraft Shenzhou-9 and Shenzhou-10 will be launched to dock with Tiangong space station in 2012 to conduct preparations for building the space station.

China plans to set up its orbital space station by 2020, Yang Liwei, China's first astronaut said.

Before that China plans to launch the unmanned space station Tiangong-1 and Shenzhou-8 next year to conduct the first unmanned space docking test which is as an essential for building orbital space station, Yang said.

Yang said that China's manned space project has three phases which included manned space flight and a successful spacewalk, state run People's Daily quoted him as saying while visiting a space ground station at Xian today.

Shenzhou 8 is a planned unmanned flight of China's Shenzhou programme, which is scheduled for launch in 2011.

According to the Chinese space agency (CNSA), the Shenzhou 8 spacecraft will be remotely docked with the Tiangong 1 space module (itself expected to launch in 2011).

This unmanned docking attempt - China's first - will be followed in the same year with the manned Shenzhou 9 mission which will perform a manned docking (also China's first) with the Tiangong 1 module.

Shenzhou-11 spacecraft docks with Tiangong-2 space lab

BEIJING, Oct. 19 (Xinhua) -- The Shenzhou-11 manned spacecraft successfully completed its automated docking with the orbiting Tiangong-2 space lab at 3:31 a.m. Wednesday Beijing Time, according to Beijing Aerospace Control Center (BACC).

Shenzhou-11, which was launched Monday morning from northwest China's Gobi Desert, began to approach Tiangong-2 automatically at 1:11 a.m. Wednesday and made contact with the space lab at 3:24 a.m..

The rendezvous took place in the orbit about 393 kilometers above Earth.

The two astronauts aboard Shenzhou-11, Jing Haipeng and Chen Dong, monitored and reported on the docking operation, relaying their findings to the control center.

According to the mission schedule, once they enter the space module, the astronauts will stay there for 30 days.

Shenzhou-11, China's sixth manned spacecraft, will undertake the longest-ever space mission in the country. The two astronauts will spend a total of 33 days in space.

Sun Jun, deputy chief engineer of BACC, told Xinhua that the precision needed for the orbit prediction and automated docking calculation was much higher than previous docking missions.

China is the third country, after the United States and Russia, to complete successfully space rendezvous and docking procedures.

Tiangong-2 was sent into space on Sept. 15. It is hailed as China's first space lab "in the strict sense" and a key step in building a permanent space station, which the country aims to accomplish by 2020.

China's astronaut Jing Haipeng celebrates his 50th birthday in space


Mission commander Jing Haipeng hangs on to colleague Chen Dong in the weightless environment of Tiangong-2 after their Shenzhou-11 spacecraft successfully completed a complicated docking procedure early yesterday. The pair will spend the next 30 days in the two-module complex in what will be China’s longest manned mission to date. They entered the Tiangong-2 module shortly after 6am and contacted the Beijing Aerospace Control Center from their orbit some 393 kilometers above the Earth to extend greetings to all the nation’s people. A fully functioning space station is expected to be operational six years from now. — Xinhua

AN accompanying satellite was launched from space lab Tiangong-2 at 7:31 a.m. on Sunday, said Chinese scientists.

The satellite, which weighs 47 kilograms and is the size of a printer, was launched into space aboard Tiangong-2 on Sept. 15, said the Technology and Engineering Center for Space Utilization under the Chinese Academy of Sciences.

The micro satellite is able to conduct efficient orbit control, process tasks autonomously and transmit data at high speeds, with stronger capabilities compared with the accompanying satellite of the Shenzhou-7 spacecraft, it said.

At the end of October, the satellite will orbit close to Tiangong-2 and Shenzhou-11 and take photos with the high-resolution camera installed on it.

The accompanying satellite will also carry out space experiments with Tiangong-2 to expand the use of space.

The Shenzhou-11 spacecraft carried two astronauts into space on Oct. 17 from northwest China's Gobi Desert. It docked with Tiangong-2 two days later.

Farewell, Tiangong 1

The worlds waits for Tiangong-1 to fall

and the latest official statement ...Xinhua news -- http://www.xinhuanet.com/english/2018-04/01/c_137081072.htm

Tiangong-1 to re-enter Earth's atmosphere on April 2
Source: Xinhua| 2018-04-01 18:06:20

BEIJING, April 1 (Xinhua) -- Tiangong-1, China's first space lab, will re-enter the Earth's atmosphere on April 2, China Manned Space Engineering Office (CMSEO) said on Sunday.

Tiangong-1 orbited at an average altitude of 167.6 kilometers on Sunday.

The space lab will mostly be burnt up in the atmosphere and it's highly unlikely to cause any damage on the ground, according to an article published by CMSEO recently.

With a weight of about eight tons, Tiangong-1 is much smaller the 80-ton Skylab and 140-ton Mir, and is unlikely to affect aviation activities or cause damage on the ground, the article said.

The re-entry process is usually divided into three phases. During the first phase, the atmospheric drag will rip solar arrays, antennas, and other external parts off a spacecraft at an altitude of about 100 kilometers.

As it continues to fall, the main structure of the spacecraft will be burnt or explode from increasing heat and friction. It normally disintegrates at an altitude of about 80 kilometers.

The fragments will keep burning and most of them will be dissipated in the air. Only a small amount of debris will reach the ground, and will float down at a very slow speed due to their small mass.

Tiangong-1 was launched on Sept. 29, 2011 and ended service in March 2016 after completing its mission.

It has docked with Shenzhou-8, Shenzhou-9, and Shenzhou-10 spacecraft and undertaken a series of tasks, making important contributions to China's manned space cause.

半年内,印度空间研究组织第二次卫星发射任务以失败告终。

据《印度时报》网站4月1日报道,印度空间研究组织现已证实,印最强大的通讯卫星“GSAT-6A”失去联系。

该卫星经由印度“GSLV-F08”运载火箭搭载于上周四发射,上周六上午尝试第二次变轨操作后即与后方失去联系。经初步分析,可能是卫星电力系统出现故障。

Can we bet like 100 euro that French won't raise the war to China?

The point is don't put up space junk if you can't control where it lands. If you have killed Tahiti fishermen you would be paying a big check to the French.

Paying check is equal to war as you said?

We are going to sail a carrier through the South China Sea and we don't care about your fake EEZ. France has the real EEZ that you drop your space junk threatening French citizens. You are irresponsible fake country that needs to take the lesson to make space junk that doesn't break down in 18 months. Looking at your space launches you have to replace your satellites three times as often as Europe.

I think the Dual-Carrier battle group will be a super threat to Chinese existence in South China sea, i believe that French must do this to show muscle.


Talking about break down in few months...

I think losing a prop isn't as bad as your boilers exploding.
