Wang Xiang, Commander-in-Chief of the China Manned Space Engineering Space Station System: "As a space station, our application development has just started."
Exploring #Tiangong with me！The 7-minute full-English science popularization video brings you an immersive Chinese space station exploration experience.
During the Shenzhen-15 mission, it is planned to carry out 3 to 4 extravehicular activities for astronauts. The longest EVA among them may reach the upper limit of 8 hours for the independent working time of the extravehicular suit.(old video)
Next, with the support and cooperation of the ground, the astronauts of the Chinese space station will use the mechanical arm or through EVA to successively install many external exposure (test) payloads.There are currently 4 types of payload adapters outside the Chinese space station:Figure 1 - Wentian Ⅰ type;Figure 2 - Wentian Ⅱ type;Figure 3 - Mengtian;Figure 4 - Large load, extended test platform, small mooring mechanism.
There are two standard exposed payload adapters for Wentian outboards, type Ⅰ and type Ⅱ . The two are slightly different in appearance, and the main difference in function is that one can provide certain thermal control support, while the other cannot.Figure 4 is a schematic diagram of the external material exposure test device to be installed outside Wentian ♥️ . There are still many exposed payloads that need to be installed... Let's talk about it later~
New era begins for China space project
It takes about 12 hours for the urine treatment subsystem to process a case of 22 L of urine, and the urine distilled water is then passed through the water treatment subsystem. The water treatment subsystem requires less than 12 hrs to process urine distilled water into recycled water.https://twitter.com/SegerYu/status/1602251981179211777
