Note too that the lander is released before MOI.
Quote from: Dalhousie on 05/27/2016 08:55 amNote too that the lander is released before MOI.yet in the following sequence you can see it released at apoapsis in Mars orbit (Steven Pietrobon's 3rd screen capture)
Unmanned Mars sample return mission is of great significance to obtain scientific results and improve engineering ability. The mission period is longer and technical risk is higher compared with several foreign Mars landing and roving missions. The top-level system design is determined by the mission flight mode. The rendezvous capture and sample transfer process should be completed near the Mars orbit. Therefore,two probes with different functions are required:one is used to perform Mars capture, sample storage and Mars-Earth transfer,the other to complete EDL process,Mars surface ascent and sample delivery. Such key issues as EDL mode,Mars ascent vehicle,Mars orbit rendezvous and capture,sample transfer,earth entry vehicle,system scales,rocket selection,etc. are analyzed in this paper. The main technical difficulty and solution approaches are discussed.
CZ-5 schedule after Y3 from the Liuyi twitter:2020.04 -- [Correction by GP SST: MDR/WDR of the CZ-5B at the launch pad]2020.07.23 through 08.05 -- CZ-5 №Y4 with HX-1 (Mars-1) mission 2020.10 -- CZ-5B №Y1 with Chinese Next Gen spacecraft2020.12.04 through 8 -- CZ-5 №Y5 with CE-52021.Q2 -- CZ-5B №Y2 with Tianhe base blok of Tiangong space station
…The Long March-5 Y4 rocket has recently completed a 100-second test for its high thrust hydrogen-oxygen engine, which is the last engine examination before the final assembly....
It seems that Huoxing-1 is renamed Tianwen-1:https://twitter.com/hanipersian/status/1253509477141225472
So the Mars mission is 天问 and the China Space Station Experimental module 1 is 问天. Kind of strange.
