Nov 13, 2019

On November 6, two exhibits, the Shenzhou spacecraft return cabin test cabin and the Long March 2 F rocket fairing, were unveiled at the Youth Square of the Niu Shou Mountain Cultural Tourism Zone for the upcoming 2nd Science Fiction and Science Forum and the 1st Blue Planet Science Fiction Film Week. The event adds a strong science atmosphere.


The Shenzhou 11 spacecraft return cabin test cabin is like a big clock. The bottom of the spacecraft is about 3.2 meters in diameter and about 2.3 meters high. The astronauts need to exit from the top of the test cabin. The return cabin, also known as the cockpit, is the astronaut's "cab" and is the cabin that the astronauts traveled into and out of space. It is a closed structure with a front door. The fairing is a fairing of the Long March II F launch vehicle. The inner diameter is 3.4 meters and the length is 8.4 meters. It is used to protect satellites, spacecraft and other payloads to prevent satellites from being affected by aerodynamic forces, pneumatic heating and acoustic vibration. The environmental impact is an important part of the launch vehicle.


"On November 18, 2016, the Shenzhou XI spacecraft return cabin successfully landed in the predetermined area, attracting the attention of the world." According to the organizer of the event, the two exhibits of the exhibition are from the China Aerospace Museum. The return cabin is a test cabin for the simulation test. The science exhibition board will be arranged on the site. The exhibition time is from November 15th to 21st. The vast number of tourists have a close understanding of the development achievements of China's space industry.


The organizers hope to build a platform for the integration of science and technology, science and technology, education and science popularization through the exhibition to expand the influence and communication power of the Niu Shou Mountain Cultural Tourism Zone. At the same time, vigorously promote the spirit of space, scientifically popularize aerospace knowledge, stimulate the nation's exploration and innovation enthusiasm, and consolidate the powerful power of China's dream of aerospace dreams.
