Explore the vast universe

At 9:22 on June 17, the Long March 2F Y-12 carrier rocket carrying the Shenzhou 12 manned spacecraft was ignited and launched at the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center. Since then, the Shenzhou 12 manned spacecraft successfully separated from the rocket, entered the scheduled orbit, and successfully sent the three astronauts into space. We warmly congratulate the new progress made in this manned space flight!

The successful launch of the Shenzhou 12 manned spacecraft is the first manned mission of Chinas space station stage. Prior to this, the Long March multi-type rocket relay launch, the space station Tianhe Core Module, the Tianzhou-2 cargo spacecraft and other multi-type missions of the space station stage have achieved complete success. According to the scheduled procedure, the Shenzhou 12 manned spacecraft will dock with the Tianhe Core Module, and the astronauts will be stationed in the Core Module to complete a three-month in-orbit residency to verify a series of key technologies regarding the long-term stay of the astronauts on the space station and help China Manned Space enter the space station era.

In the 29 years since the implementation of the China Manned Space Program in September 1992, Chinese astronauts have paid countless hardships and sweat for the series of progress made in the manned space industry. China country has successively mastered the ability to independently carry out manned space activities, as well as astronaut extravehicular activities and space rendezvous and docking technologies, and built the first space laboratory. Behind the outstanding achievements in the field of manned space, it is the strong support of the aerospace spirit, because the dream of space is an important part of the dream of a powerful nation. It is the common dream of all Chinese to explore the vast universe, develop aerospace industry.

The world today is facing severe test of climate, environment, resources, energy and other issues. The exploration of the outer space is precisely to seek to solve part of the problems we face. Human space exploration needs the support of space technology, which will promote the development of corresponding technologies and drive the overall progress of science and technology in order to benefit mankind. It can be said that building a space station and exploring outer space will be important goals for human society to explore and develop human civilization.

The exploration of Mars by Tianwen-1, the lunar landing of Chang'e-4, and the construction of the China Space Station show that China is already at the forefront of the world in space exploration. The construction of China Space Station will make the exploration of space even greater and farther. With the new pace of the construction of the China Space Station started by the Shenzhou 12 astronauts this time, we look forward to the China Space Station leaving the footsteps of astronauts from all over the world to stop, and Together with Chinese astronauts, we will jointly explore and promote human civilization to a higher level.
