    Presentation of Chinese modular space station "Tianhe"


    On October 23, 2018 at the 5th All-China Scientific Conference on Astronautics, which takes place in the city of Xi'an, a presentation of the new Chinese modular space station Tianhe was held.

    When assembled, it should become the third multi-module manned orbital station in the world (after the Mir and the ISS stations), significantly smaller, but generally similar in function to the Soviet third-generation orbital station Mir. The first module of the station is planned to be put into Earth orbit in 2019. Manned spacecraft “Shenzhou”, modules created on the basis of the Tiangong-2 space laboratory, and automatic cargo ships “Tianzhou” weighing 13 tons with a payload of up to 6 tons, created on the basis of the target module “Tiangun” should dock with this orbital station. -one". Completion of construction is scheduled for 2022 with a service life of 10 years. Fully assembled, without taking into account the ships, it will weigh about 60 tons, about 2 times less in mass and size to the Soviet station complex "Mir" (124 tons) and 7 times less than the ISS (417 tons).

    In contrast to the one-module visited orbital spacecraft Tyangun-1 and Tyangun-2, the Chinese space station consists of several modules. The initial base module (Hexing Zang) of the modular station has its name - “Tianhe”. It is planned to connect two laboratory modules to it: “Wentian” and “Mentian” so that all three modules form the letter T. The transport manned ship “Shenzhou” and the cargo ship “Tianzhou” will dock with this design. The basic Tianhe module has 5 docking stations, therefore, in the future, this configuration of the modular station can be expanded with additional modules. They decided to make the module with the Xuntian telescope autonomous, but it will have a common orbit with the station. And it will periodically moor to the axial docking station of the docking station for maintenance and replacement of scientific instruments.

    The full-size mock-up of the Tianhe modular space station will be demonstrated at the Zhuhai aerospace show.
