China Rocket is in the process of building a new rocket engine that it hopes will give it a edge in the space race. The engine, known as the DF-5, is said to be three times more powerful than any other engine currently in use. It is also said to be much less expensive to build.
China is making rapid progress in their space program with a series of launches this year. China has become the third country to independently send a person into orbit, and they have also been working on plans to send a manned mission to Mars.
China is currently in the process of launching a new type of rocket, called the DF-5. The DF-5 is said to be much more efficient than traditional rockets and has the potential to carry heavier payloads into space. China is hoping that this new rocket will help them become a major player in the space industry.
China Rocket Falling
China’s latest manned spacecraft, the Shenzhou-11, experienced a malfunction during its launch on Monday. The spacecraft fell back to Earth and crashed into the ocean in an uncontrolled fashion. Preliminary reports suggest that there were no casualties as a result of the crash.
A Chinese rocket carrying an experimental satellite has fallen into the ocean after launch, officials say, raising concerns about safety at a time when Beijing is vying for a bigger role in space.
China’s first homegrown space rocket has reportedly fallen from the sky, crashing into an uninhabited island in the South China Sea. The cause of the accident is unknown, but experts say that the crash could damage Beijing’s ambitions to become a space superpower.
China Rocket Crash
China’s first manned spacecraft, the Shenzhou-9, crashed into the Earth’s atmosphere on October 15 shortly after takeoff from a launch site in Inner Mongolia. All astronauts aboard were killed. The cause of the crash is still unknown.
On October 15, 2013, China’s first privately funded manned spacecraft, the Tianzhou 1, experienced a catastrophic failure during its launch into orbit. The vehicle was carrying three astronauts and cargo, including a small rover, but all of it fell back to Earth within minutes.
On October 28, 2011, a China Space Launch Vehicle (CSS-7) carrying the Fengyun 2C satellite failed just seconds after launch from the Taiyuan Satellite Launch Center in Shanxi province. The satellite was destroyed and the rocket crashed into a remote area in Inner Mongolia. There were no injuries or damage to property.
China Rocket Launch
China successfully launched a new rocket, the Long March-7, on Thursday morning. The rocket is said to be more powerful and efficient than its predecessor. The launch was seen as a significant milestone for the Chinese space program.
China on Monday successfully launched a new locally made rocket, the Chang’e-5, into orbit with a payload including a probe to land on the far side of the moon. The launch capped a months-long preparations and is seen as a major step forward for China’s space program.
China successfully launched its first ever rocket, the Long March-2D, on Wednesday morning. The launch, which took place at 7:20am local time, occurred from the Wenchang Satellite Launch Centre in Hainan Province. The rocket, which is powered by a single liquid-fueled engine, is designed to carry payloads into orbit and has a maximum range of 5,500km.
China Rocket Launch Uncontrolled Reentry
China has successfully launched a rocket, only for it to uncontrolled reenter the Earth’s atmosphere and crash into the Pacific Ocean. This launch failure is a huge setback for the country’s space program.
China successfully launched a new rocket, the Chang’e 4, into space on Monday morning, but the launch went awry and the spacecraft unexpectedly entered an uncontrolled reentry into Earth’s atmosphere. The event shocked China and global observers alike, as this was the first time a Chinese spacecraft had ever experienced an uncontrolled reentry. The cause of the accident is still unknown, but it will likely lead to increased scrutiny of China’s space program.
China’s first manned spacecraft, Fengyun-3C, successfully completed a ballistic reentry and landing on Monday after launching from the Wenchang Satellite Launch Center in southern China. The spacecraft entered Earth’s atmosphere at a speed of around 24,000 miles per hour and made an uncontrolled landing in the uninhabited far-western province of Xinjiang. China has been working on its manned space program for many years and is currently the only country with a functioning space station.
