China’s space experts: manual rendezvous and docking the astronauts face more challenges
commander and chief designer of the astronaut system Shan-wide
■ newspaper correspondent special correspondent Zhang Liwen Zhang Xiaoqi Liu Gang
Correspondent: astronauts rendezvous and docking system for the first time to assume the task which major work?
Shan-wide: the first rendezvous and docking mission, the astronauts charged with the important responsibility of the system, the main task is to: assess verify medical monitoring of astronauts and space world of medical laboratory equipment, information transmission interface, make sure no one during the in-orbit operation state; for aircraft data astronauts living environment for future manned flights the astronauts and ground flight control health insurance foundation support; rendezvous and docking tasks for the selection, training flight by group.
correspondent: in terms of the astronaut system, which will face the technical difficulties and breakthroughs?
Shan-wide: rendezvous and docking mission with the previous three times compared to manned space flight, regardless of task size and technical requirements have undergone significant changes, the astronaut system presents a serious challenge. Specifically, the astronauts will face with a series of closely related issues, it is imperative astronaut training manual rendezvous and docking technology. Manual rendezvous and docking face more challenges, more technical issues need to be addressed.
correspondent: the first rendezvous and docking mission, the astronauts will carry out targeted system which aerospace medical experiments?
Shan-wide: The mission of the astronauts rendezvous and docking system is of great significance, marking the manned space flight mission from short-term transition to long-term flight. Shenzhou V to the Shenzhou VII mission, the astronauts successfully completed the task of the system though, it does not mean that all solve the “people” issues. Therefore, the medical experiments in this space is more important is to long for the next flight, the person’s physical, psychological research, including the mechanism of which mechanism, for example, astronauts in weightlessness, cardiovascular system, nervous system and the skeletal system and other changes, these are not only our country but also the world’s long-term manned space flight in the field of the key issues of concern.
the rendezvous and docking mission, part of the regenerative life support system project in the experiment, for example, waste water, sewage into clean water to drink, to extract oxygen from the water, the formation of recycling, and carbon dioxide collection, reduction, concentration, etc., believe that these technologies for our future space station construction will play an active role.share:
