After the CZ-2F/G Y15 launch vehicle + Shenzhen-15 manned spacecraft are transferred to the launch area, the main pre-launch work includes: ship/arrow function inspection, air tightness test, whole system launch drill, astronaut on-site confirmation, rocket raise.

I guess it might be around 15:11:40 ~ 15:12:20 UTC from my calculation.

It’s still unclear what’s happening in Xichang, but elsewhere it’s been confirmed w/ air space closures that Shenzhou 15 is launching to the CSS on November 29 at ~15:08 UTC, marking the first “operational expedition” to the Tiangong Space Station.

Another NOTAM over Spratly Islands in South China Sea indicates a CZ3(B?) launch from Xichang. Not GTO, not SSO, then it will very likely be a launch of Beidou to MEO. Windows open 04:00~10:00UTC daily from DEC.30 to JAN.02. Last of 2022, or first of 2023? Which do you bet on?

Airspace closures for safety of #Shenzhou15 have been posted, affirming the crewed mission to @TiangongStation at ~15:05UTC on NOV.29, while the NOTAM near Fiji of a potential CZ11 launch from Xichang has been postponed to NET DEC.11 & that of a CZ2D launch today has been removed

Meanwhile for the current Chinese human orbital launcher, looks like there will be snow on the ground when Shenzhou 15 launches on November 29:

神舟十五号任务进行最后一次全区合练 发射场做好应对低温天气准备

The Shenzhou 15 mission conducts the last joint training in the whole region, and the launch site is ready to deal with the low temperature weather

Xinhua News Agency, Jiuquan, November 27th (Li Guoli, Feng Qingling) The manned flight mission of Shenzhou 15 carried out the last joint training of the whole region and the airtightness check of the whole system on the 27th. At present, the systems of the rocket, spacecraft and launch site are in good condition, and all preparations for rocket filling have been completed.

On that day, the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center ushered in low temperature weather with mixed wind and snow, and the highest temperature dropped below zero. This is the second time that Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center has carried out a spacecraft launch mission in severe winter weather after the Shenzhou-4 launch mission.

The low temperature environment will have an adverse effect on the performance of outdoor refueling gas supply and non-standard tower support equipment, which will increase the difficulty of air conditioning guarantee for flying products such as spacecraft and rockets, and also face severe challenges for energy supply systems such as power supply and distribution at the launch site . To this end, the launch site conducts in-depth analysis and identification of hidden risks from the aspects of technology, management, quality, and operation, formulates prevention and control measures and emergency plans, and conducts special equipment review, operation inspection, and emergency response drills.

Liu Yang, the platform commander, led the post personnel to block the windows and platforms on the launch tower, prevent rain, keep warm, and a series of tasks that are conducive to the heating of the air-conditioning system, so as to ensure the rocket's requirements for the ambient temperature. The staff of the Meteorological Office of the Central Center also took various measures to step up meteorological monitoring and meteorological consultations through meteorological equipment such as Fengyun satellites, sounding balloons, and Doppler radars, so as to ensure timely and accurate weather forecasts for the scientific decision-making of the mission command.

"We have made special technical preparations for the meteorological factors that can affect the launch in the past 40 years, and summarized the surface winds greater than 10 meters, high-altitude winds greater than 60 meters, and low temperature weather below minus 20 degrees Celsius one by one. " said Li Xingdong, chief weather forecaster at the launch site.

After the Shenzhou 15 ship-rocket assembly arrived at the launch area, the spacecraft and rocket function checks and matching checks have been completed, and a system-wide launch drill has been organized. The rocket propellant filling and launch will be carried out in accordance with the procedures.

"According to the characteristics of this low-temperature launch, various systems at the launch site continue to carry out review of the status of facilities and equipment. We are prepared, confident, and capable of completing the launch mission." Wang Xuewu, deputy director of the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center, said.
