Tianhe Docked by Tianzhou 3 Spacecraft

China’s cargo spacecraft Tianzhou 3 is separated from China’s Tiangong space station core module Tianhe and is Redocked with the space station this Wednesday.

Tianzhou 3 Spacecraft got detached from the rear Chinese space station at 5.02 a.m. from the docking port of Tianhe and then, moved ahead to the modules front port and then completed a computer orchestrated rendezvous, and then docked early at 9.06 a.m. [Beijing time]. This information is given by the China Manned Space Agency.

It also said that the combination of Tianzhou 3 spacecraft and Tianhe core module is in good condition, and now they are waiting to dock with the Tianzhou – 4 cargo spacecraft. The Shenzhou-14 manned space ship are currently in the lab module in the Wentian.

China’s plans for Space station

China has planned to complete the construction of their in obit of its space station by the end of this year. They are putting their sweat on full fire to achieve the mission by 2022.

China has planned around 6 missions for this year 2022, the missions include the launch of the Tianzhou 4 cargo spacecraft that will be launched around May 2022, and the other mission is, Shenzhou-14, which will be launched around June.

They even have planned two lab module projects that are Wentian in July 2022 and the other module project is Mengtian in October 2022. The other two plans are not opened by China Space Agency, but I am sure they will be related to the space station’s construction, and these missions will be launched around the end of this year.

The space station’s construction will start soon in China’s space station in orbit, and this module will be looked like T shape module in space. Isn’t this interesting!
