The Chinese spacecraft returned to Earth after 9 months in orbit

The purpose of the mission is to test reusable technology and in-orbit service technology.

China’s experimental reusable spacecraft returned to Earth on May 8 after completing a nine-month orbital mission. This was reported by the China Daily newspaper.

The Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center emphasized that the success of the test marks “a major breakthrough in China’s reusable spacecraft technology, which will provide a convenient and affordable way to travel between space and Earth.”

The vehicle was launched by a Long March 2F launch vehicle in August 2022 to test reusable technology and in-orbit service technology.

It is noted that the mission is the second test of a multiple experimental spacecraft. The first happened in September 2020, when the device spent almost two days in orbit.

It will be recalled that in March, the Chinese Kuaizhou-1A launch vehicle successfully launched four meteorological satellites into orbit to replenish the Tianmu-1 orbital constellation.
