Shenzhou unmanned test flights
« on: 07/11/2006 01:51 PM »
Would taikonauts have survived on any of the four unmanned Shenzhou test flights? Probably the first flight in Nov.'99 was just to test the spacecraft launching and returning. The fourth flight probably could have carried a crew. But wat about the second and third flights? ;)

I think the Chinese never showed the Shenzhou 2 capsule after its return. Possibly because of some problems at reentry.
I watch rockets

In the development of the Long March 2F for manned spaceflight, were there any changes whatsoever made to the 4 strap-on boosters, from the ones on the LM-2E?
