Chinese scientists spoke about the prospects for space exploration

Leading designers of the Chinese space industry shared their ambitious plans for space exploration. One of the main ongoing projects is the construction of the Tiangong space station, on board of which Chinese astronauts are currently working. 


Zhou Jianping, chief designer of the manned space program flights of China:

“The era of space stations is just beginning. Obviously, there is a lot of work ahead. This year's program includes the completion of the construction of the station, the flight of cosmonauts into orbit, the docking of cargo spacecraft, and the delivery of scientific equipment, which will later be put into operation. Then in 23 or 24, we also plan to launch the China Space Station Telescope (CSST). It will provide us with a wide range of opportunities to explore the universe."


China is looking beyond Earth orbit and has already reached the Red Planet. Last May, the Tianwen-1 lander reached the surface of Mars. This extraordinary event confirmed China's ambitions for space exploration.


Zhang Rongqiao, chief designer of the Tianwen-1 mission: < br>
“The plan of our further actions is extremely clear. The next step will be to study space asteroid samples. We will also collect, deliver and study soil samples from Mars. The task is very difficult, and so far no country has been able to deliver soil and rock samples from the Red Planet to Earth, but we are confident that we can do it. 


China is also implementing its own global positioning structure through the creation and development of the Beidou navigation satellite system, which translates as "Big Dipper". 


Yang Changfeng, BDS chief designer:< /i>

“We showed a new generation of the BeiDou system. We plan to fully implement it at the national level by 2035. And very soon you will be able to use our system seamlessly, reliably and efficiently all over the world - on land, at sea, in the air and even in space.”

Wang Taifan, a member of the orchestra, spoke about the challenges he faced.


Wang Taifan, musician:< /i>

“It's very cold in Beijing to play outdoors in winter. The tool gets cold and I don't feel the vibration as well. I could give wrong notes, so I had to practice outside more. I rehearsed until my performance was perfect."

Li Longmei, director of the Chongqing Special Education Center:

< i> “The influence goes far beyond imagination. Few people are given the opportunity to perform on a grand stage, and the valuable experience has become a treasure for life. After that, there are no difficulties that seem insurmountable.”
