China postponed a supply mission to its new space station Thursday for technical reasons
China delayed an inventory mission to its new space station Thursday for unknown specialized reasons.
The Tianzhou-2 load space apparatus was relied upon to have been dispatched early Thursday morning. China Manned Space reported the postponement on its site however didn't say when the rescheduled dispatch may happen.
It would be the principal mission to go to the principle Tianhe module of the space station that was dispatched on April 29. Another 10 dispatches are intended to convey the station's other two modules, different segments and supplies, and a three-man group.
The dispatch of Tianhe, or Heavenly Harmony, was viewed as a triumph in spite of the fact that China was reprimanded for permitting the uncontrolled reemergence of part of the rocket that conveyed it into space.
For the most part, disposed of rocket stages reemerge the air not long after takeoff, regularly over water, and don't go into space.
NASA Administrator Sen. Bill Nelson said at the time that China had neglected to satisfy dependable guidelines with respect to space flotsam and jetsam.
China's space program has endured moderately couple of misfortunes since it initial put a space explorer into space in 2003, albeit the space station dispatch was postponed by the disappointment of a previous adaptation of the huge Long March 5B rocket.
Recently, China additionally handled a test and its going with wanderer on Mars and has started sending back pictures from the outside of the red planet.
Just the United States has effectively landed and worked a rocket on Mars multiple times, starting with the twin Vikings in 1976 and, most as of late, with the Perseverance meanderer in February.
China additionally as of late brought back lunar examples, the first by any nation's space program since the 1970s, and furthermore handled a test and wanderer on the moon's less investigated far side.
China prior dispatched two more modest exploratory space stations. It has been rejected from the International Space Station to a great extent at the demand of the United States, which is careful about the mystery encompassing the Chinese space program and its nearby military connections.
Notwithstanding that, China has gone into progressively close participation in space with different European and different nations.

Chinese rocket is hurtling back to Earth after space station launch
Chinese rocket is hurtling back to Earth after space station launch
By Leah Crane A Long March 5B rocket launched on 29 April STR/AFP via Getty Images On 29 April, China launched the first module of its biggest space station yet atop a Long March 5B rocket. Now, part of that rocket is hurtling back towards Earth, and there is no way to predict exactly where or when it will land. Most large rockets perform a controlled re-entry when they return from their…

Tianhe, the Core of the Chinese Space Station
Tianhe, the Core of the Chinese Space Station
Why China Created Tianhe China has long had its sights set on establishing its own space station in low-Earth orbit. The country, which is not an International Space Station partner, has spent the last few decades making preparations, even launching two space labs—Tiangong-1 in 2011 and Tiangong-2 in 2016. Though both space stations were eventually destroyed upon re-entering Earth’s atmosphere,…

China's Chang'e 5 Will Collect Moon Rocks Nearly after 40 Years.
Tumblr media
China is no stranger to lunar missions. Over the years, the country has sent a number of increasingly challenging missions to our natural satellite. The most famous of which, was the historic landing of the Chang’e 4 spacecraft on the moon’s far side in 2019. But this next launch is about to push the limits even further as Chang’e 5 is headed off to a previously unexplored lunar region. And this time, it’s bringing back a souvenir.This is all super exciting because the last time lunar samples were brought back to Earth was during the U.S. and Soviet missions in the 1960s and 1970s. And it’s perfect timing,because there’s now a renewed push for countries to focus on better understanding the moon’s evolution and even look for potential lunar activities such as mining or human colonies. And China is well prepared since it’s been developing two spacecraft for each of the three phases of its robotic lunar exploration program: orbiting, landing and finally, sample return.
        And that’s where Chang’e 5 comes in. It’s China’s first lunar sample return mission and the spacecraft will contain four parts that make up the whole mission: an orbiter,
an ascender, a lander, and an Earth re-entry module. The orbiter will help place the spacecraft into the lunar... orbit. Once there, the lander and ascender will separate from the orbiter and land on the near side of the moon, an unexplored and vast, dark lava plain called Mons Rümker. After touching down, the lander will drill two meters below the surface, and
using a robotic arm, extract roughly two kilograms of lunar material. The sample will then be stored in the ascent module, which it will lift off to autonomously dock with the orbiter and transfer its sample to the return vehicle. From there, the return module will then separate to make the 5,000 km journey back to Earth, where it will re-enter the atmosphere for a parachute assisted landing.
         So, that’s a lot of steps. Which means there’s a lot that could go wrong. But again, that’s what makes this mission so exciting because it’s all so very ambitious. And as if there wasn’t enough pressure already, time is of the essence. Unlike Chang’e 4 which is an ongoing mission, this latest endeavour is expected to complete its mission within one lunar day, or roughly 14 Earth days. That’s because come nightfall, the extreme temperature shift could jeopardize the spacecraft.
         Originally scheduled to launch back in 2017, Chang’e 5 is now expected to take off on a Long March-5 rocket at the end of November 2020. And the team won’t have to wait long for the sample, since it’s expected to arrive back on Earth by early to mid-December.
But why exactly do we want these lunar samples? I mean we already have some from the Apollo era, why do we need any more? Well, it’s all about the moon’s evolutionary history.        
         The previous samples were taken from regions where the moon was believed to have stopped its volcanic activity some 3.5 billion years ago. But new theories believe that there could be some areas where lava could have formed more recently, like one to two billion years ago. And if the sample that Chang’e 5 collects proves that the moon was still geologically active at that time, it could change everything we know about the moon’s history. So no pressure, Chang’e 5.And if it doesn’t succeed, even more complicated backup missions are already in the works with Chang’e 6 and 7 planned for launch in 2023 or 2024. So with all these missions lined up, it’s just good practice for the biggest challenge of them all: sending humans to the moon.
           Now, for that momentous occasion, China is looking towards the 2030s to accomplishthat feat, so in the meantime, a couple of practice runs will hopefully help get readyfor the big day.

since the game was written in japanese "deja vu" might've just been the closest english translation for whatever word was originally there. unless they also said it in the original french is probably still cancelled
i mean im gonna take a stab in the dark and assume that they probably Didnt say deja vu in the original japanese dialogue but are we going to reopen the debate of what language is canon to the xb universe when removed from the context of it being a game
