[ event playback ] April 24, 1970, China successfully launched the first artificial Earth satellite.
Fuzaidexia allegations room periscope, the reporter saw that experienced a hundred meters away the dark clouds of the past 40 years, the launch tower, still stand as a giant-like. The marble monument engraved with the tower before the golden line characters – “DFH Satellite rising place.”
look around this buried under sand dunes in the Gobi allegations room, when used in instrumentation have become shabby and obsolete, and only flash the Quotations from Chairman Mao is still in the red wall: “Be sure to the near future, catch up and surpass the advanced world level! “
1970 年 4 月 24 日 21 when 35 minutes, is here, squadron leader Zhang Jihua launch a loud shout:” Ignition! “operator Hu Shixiang then press the launch button. Exciting chapter in the new China in the mountains shake in the earth opened – China has become the Soviet Union, the United States, France, Japan, the fifth country to launch satellites, the Chinese head into the international space club.
this year’s “August” on the eve of the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center sunny. Reporters interview here encounter three from Henan Zhengzhou, more than 70 years old – Zhang Xitang, Liushou Guo and Hou same, they made a special trip to the old forces “relatives” of. Speaking of the first artificial Earth satellite launch something, when he guards regiment battalion commander of Liu Shouguo also remember a newspaper headline – satellites travel in space, the world resounded through the East is Red. Then any technician in the measurement station with Hou said: “I specifically went to the host satellite broadcast of the East Room to listen to music red, felt especially proud of!”
it really is so proud of all the Chinese people moment. Hunan, Hainan, two control stations, will receive the satellite broadcast of “East is Red” music signal into a tape recording from the plane sent to Beijing for the Central People’s Broadcasting Station broadcast to the world.
around the country, people are excitedly looking forward to the space, carefully looking for a part of China’s satellite TV drama. Many in the April 24 babies born this day, the parents are excited spontaneously played a memorable name – “satellite.”
foreign comment was very interesting. Singapore’s “people’s tribune,” said: “China has successfully launched the first artificial Earth satellite, the sound waves coming from outer space, not only shock the world of people, but also to the United States, Soviet Union the same care for the smell of pale.”
To this day, Chinese astronauts made arduous efforts. China’s space industry started in the mid-1950s, due to the tight blockade of the imperialists, the new China Science and Technology can not make contact with the outside world. October 4, 1957, the first former Soviet Union successfully launched the first artificial satellite. The next few decades, the United States, the Soviet Union and other major powers engaged in a fierce competition for space, the satellites, manned spacecraft, space shuttle, space station and other frequently into space.
“We also engage satellites.” Chairman Mao’s great call to inspire a generation of scientists and promote patriotism, self-reliance and vigorous cooperation, science and seeking truth, and strive to climb the spirit to break through a key technology to overcome a difficult period, and finally set up their own development, production and test system, a piece of paper, draw a new blueprint for China’s space industry’s most beautiful.
then press the launch button DFH Satellite operator Hu Shixiang, now China’s manned space program from the position of deputy commander stepped down. He talked about past laughter Lang: When the Chinese put up in the northwest desert in the first time launchers, some Western countries think that was a joke; when the Chinese people with the speed only a few hundred thousand times per second, the preparation of the earth older computers synchronous orbit program, foreign experts also assert that: impossible! However, the Chinese people is to “impossible” into “may.”
Looking back to when the road, the Chinese people with their wisdom and self-reliance spirit, with the advantage of concentrating power of socialism, in a relatively short period of time to enter the ranks of the world’s space powers. In the new century, China’s space has formed three series 9 models of launch vehicles; Jiuquan, Xichang and Taiyuan Satellite Launch Center in the three integrated launch and continuously enhanced; spacecraft monitoring and control achieved by the land to ocean, from domestic to foreign countries, measured by the sea leap to the sea and control, and original with the world advanced level, “a multi-satellite network,” Control mode.
as Hu Shixiang said: China’s space will continue to promote self-reliance, hard struggle, efforts to develop space resources for the benefit of mankind.
