China is the third country to investigate the & # 39; moon on January 2. But, even more importantly, this is a & # 39; The first one that made it on the far side of the moon, often called the dark side. It is a technical ability in which; Ability to land on the far side of the moon, one that has not followed Russia or the United States.
The probe, Chang & 4, is a symbol of growing its & # 39; Chinese sophisticated program and its capabilities, important for China and for friendship among the great power around the world. The effects extend to the United States because Trump administration is a n; Considering a global competition in space as well as the future to explore spas.
One of the leading drivers in the US's historic space policy has been to be able to; competition with Russia especially in context; If China's success is still a collection, can the United States be a? Get involved in the new race race?
Achievement of China in the place
Like the US and Russia, the People of the Republic of China first took part in spaceships while they were the development of the ballistic tools in the 1950s. While they were & # 39; benefiting from some of the Soviet Union's help, China's rapidly expanded its spyware program. Good from a flat address, Leap Mòr Mao Zedong went on and the Cultural Exposure hinders these early programs.
The Chinese launched their first satellite in 1970. Afterwards, a program of human cell phones was maintained to focus on commercial satellite applications. In 1978, Deng Xiaoping commented on China's policy situation, saying, as a developing country, China could not participate in a race race. Instead, Jane's space efforts have been aimed at launching vehicles and satellites – including communications, remote awareness and geology.
This does not mean that the Chinese did not worry about generating world-wide global energy forces. In 1992, they decided that a space station would be a major signal and the 21st century reputation. So, the re-setup of a human-cell phones program continued to go to # 39; the development of Shenzhou spacecraft. China's first Chinese, Taiwan-taikonaut, Yang Liwei, was launched in 2003. In total, Shenzhou's six assortments have transported 12 carrier motors below low ground, and # 39 ; including two to their first spoon station, Tiangong-1.
As well as human phones, China has also worked on scientific work such as Chang 4. The first white mission, Chang 1, has passed its & # 39; moon in October 2007 and a rover came ashore on the moon in 2013. Future plans in China including a new room station, a base base and any potential ventures to return from Mars.
The most distinctive feature of the Chinese spoon program is, especially in comparison with the early American and Russian programs, at a slow and steady pace. Due to the mystery that spreads many aspects of the Chinese spoon program, it does not know what its capabilities are; there. However, the program tends to be compared to its contributors.
In terms of military bids, China has also shown important skills. In 2007, he carried out an anti-cellular test, and launched ground-based housing to destroy the waste satellite. While it was successful, the cloud test of obital debris still exists; threaten other satellites. The "Gravity" film shows the dangers that give space towels for satellites and people. In the 2018 report on a Chinese army, the Defense Department said that China's military space program "continues to grow rapidly."
Despite its abilities, the US, which is similar to other countries, has not been involved in any substantive collaboration with China due to national security concerns. Indeed, the 2011 law impedes official communication with Chinese spokesmen. Does this identify a new space race between the US. and China?
As a spatial policy researcher, I can say that the answer is and does not. Some US officials, who are & # 39; including Scott Pace, executive secretary of the National Spatial Council, hopefully optimistic about the co-operation capacity and does not see the start of a new race race. NASA Administrator, Jim Brindenstine, recently met the head of a Chinese space program at the International Astronautical Conference in Germany and discussed areas where China and the SA can work together. However, increasing military presence in the area could increase competition. Trump administration has been using its & # 39; China and Russian threat to support their argument for Force Space's new independent army branch.
Despite this, China's ability to space grows to the extent that is shown in the & # 39; a popular culture. In the novel of Andy Weir 2011 "The Martian" and the latest film version, NASA will turn to China to help with the # 39; rescue the nose. Although competition can be improved in technology, as its & # 39; First spatial race, wider scope for spatial search may be useful, not just for saving snow astronauts but, Increase knowledge of the globalization where we live. Even if an increase in China represents a new race race, all effects have not been negative.
