China Gets Ready To Launch Its First Civilian Into Space
May 30, 2023 / By Zunair Tahir / Tech News
As part of a crewed mission to the Tiangong space station on Tuesday, China will launch its first civilian astronaut as part of the country’s ambitious aspirations for a human lunar landing by 2030.
The second-largest economy in the world has poured billions of dollars into its military-run space project in an effort to overtake the United States and Russia after years of lagging behind.
All Chinese astronauts sent into space up until this point have been PLA members.
The mission’s scientific investigations would be overseen by Gui Haichao, a professor at Beijing’s Beihang University, said Lin Xiqiang, a spokesman for the China Manned Space Agency (CMSA).
The purpose of his mission is to “carry out large-scale, in-orbit experiments… in the study of novel quantum phenomena, high-precision space time-frequency systems, the verification of general relativity, and the origin of life,” according to Lin.
Gui said during a news briefing on Monday, “I’ve always had this desire.
His college said that he was from a “ordinary family” in the Yunnan region of the southwest.
According to an institution post on social media, he “first felt the attraction of aerospace” while listening to campus radio news on Yang Liwei, China’s first space traveler, in 2003.
Independent analyst Chen Lan stated that Gui’s presence is “particularly significant” considering that prior flights only carried astronauts trained as pilots who were in charge of more technical responsibilities rather than specialized scientists.
