China is going to launch the production of two space cargo device of a new type.
The news was voiced by Deputy Director General of the Corporation of the aerospace Sciences Baohua Yang, within the last in Beijing press conference.
We are therefore planning to create two new variations of the “Tanjou-1,” said Baohua. It is noted that the first option would be to have a pressurized cargo compartment and partially open the second compartment with a larger capacity.
The first ship will be involved in the transportation of items to supply astronauts small spare parts to work on the space station.
The second ship will be designed to carry cargo, not in need of special protection. It will be transported oversize parts and spacecraft to launch from the station.
Soon, says Baohua, all freight vehicles from the “Tanjou” will be used for the delivery of fuel, spare parts and other Essentials for the manned space station of China, the construction of which should begin in 2019. The station is expected to begin its work by 2022.
