Great Wall Hobby 1:48 - Chinese Space Lab Module Tiangong-1

China s Space Lab Module Tiangong-1 was launched on 29 September 2011 in Jiuquan LA-4/SLS-1 in West China. The launch marked the beginning of the second stage in China s "3-Step" space project. According to project plans, Shenzhou 8, 9, and 10 will be launched in succession to complete experiments of unmanned and manned rendezvous and docking tests with Tiangong-1 and to establish the first permanent, manned space laboratory of China. Tiangong-1 is China s first target spacecraft, designed and produced by the China Academy of Space Technology (CAST) and the Shanghai Academy of Spaceflight Technology under China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation (CASC) supervision. It is 10.4 metres in length and 3.35 metres in diameter, the full weight is 8506 kg. Structurally Tiangong-1 is divided into two primary sections: a resource module, which mounts its solar panels and propulsion systems, and larger, habitable experimental module. Tiangong-1 has a pressurised habitat of approximately 15 cubic metres inside of the experimental module. 3 astronauts can work and live here when placed in Earth orbit. The pressure tight cone in the rear is the resource module, which holds its regenerative life support system and other equipment. In front of the experimental module are the passive APAS-type docking connectors for rendezvous and docking manoeuvres with the tracking spacecraft. The resource module provides the power for orbital manoeuvres and the propulsion for the space station. The unmanned Shenzhou 8 mission successfully docked with Tiangong-1 twice on 13 November 2011, making China the third country to achieve the integrate technology of orbiting docking independently, after the United States and Russia. Since China successfully mastered the key technologies of the second stage of its manned space flight project, big progress can be expected, soon. China has entered its space station era successfully. The foreign media say that the successful launching of Tiangong-1 is the important milestone of China s space program.
