The arrival of the long March 7 carrier rocket at the Wencang Space launch center in Hainan Province marks a significant milestone in China's space exploration efforts. According to China's Manners Space Agency, the rocket will be used to send the Tianzhou 3 Cargo Ship to Tiangong, also known as The celestial palace. The agency revealed that the rocket and spacecraft will undergo final tests before their flight to the space station. Meanwhile, the Shenzhou XIII spacecraft and its rocket are undergoing technical checks at the Jiuquan Satellite Launching Center for the next mission with Shenzhou XIII crew. With China's ambitious space program, it's exciting to see what groundbreaking discoveries and advancements they will make in the future.

Materials and fuel transported by Tianzhou 3 will support Tiangong's operations and will replenish astronauts in the continuous mission of Shenzhou XII, as well as supplying his companions in Shenzhou XIII.

Both Tianzhou 3 and Shenzh Ou XIII is part of the Tiangong program, which aims to complete the construction of a three-component space station in low ground orbit before the end of 2022. < P> On May 29, Tianzhou 2 was launched in Wencang in a long March 7, becoming the first boat to dock with the central module of Tiangong, Tianhe, or Harmony of the heavens.

With a designed life of more than 1 year, Tianzhou 2 led 6.8 metric tons of supplies to Tianhe, including 2 tons of propellants, 160 packets containing supplies and materials for experiments, and two extravasized suits From 100 kilograms for astronauts to perform activities outside the central module.

A TIANZHOU charging spacecraft consists of two parts - a loading cabin and a propulsion section. The vehicle is 10.6 meters long and has a diameter of 3.35 meters.
With a take-off weight of 13.5 metric tons, it is capable of transporting up to 6.9 tonnes of supplies to the space station.

China's most adventurous spatial effort, Tiangong will consist of three main components: a core module attached to two spatial laboratories, and will have a combined weight of almost 70 metric tons. The station is scheduled to run for approximately 15 years, have said mission planners.
