Mission yes The crew of the Shenzhou 15 is the final stage of the construction process of the Thien Cung space station. According to the plan, the spacecraft carrying the three astronauts Fei Junlong, Deng Qingming and Zhang Lu will be launched by a Long March 2F rocket at 11:08 p.m. on November 29, Beijing time, or at 10:08 p.m. tonight, Hanoi time.
During the mission, the three astronauts were asked to use Mong Thien’s laboratory module for the first time to move furniture and install equipment outside the cabin. Unlike the two Shenzhou 13 and 14 missions, the Shenzhou-15 crew will conduct a series of outdoor activities.
“Speaking of outdoor activities, before we only climbed one cabin, but this time we had to climb three cabins. I measured the distance, both way, to be more than 150 meters.”said Fei, commander of the Shenzhou 15 ship.

All missions are difficult and to prepare for them, the three astronauts underwent extensive training.
“Underwater training course My longest was 6 hours. This is the limit of an astronaut’s underwater training time. This requires a strong mentality, good reserves of physical energy and strong will to carry out this mission. »Deng pointed out.
In addition to outdoor activities, the three astronauts also had to carry out numerous experiments during their mission. According to Zhang, there are a total of 24 experimental cabinets inside the Thien Cung space station, where more than 100 experiments will be conducted. For the operation to go perfectly, the three astronauts must coordinate well.

“Our experiments are both numerous and complex. If we want to remove a panel, we have to remove more than 100 screws and prevent these screws from moving away. This requires us to exercise caution and close coordination. We must always observe and remind everyone else. In space, these operations are very dangerous and can lead to irreversible damage. Therefore, more than two people are always needed for each experiment. This means that we will not let any astronaut conduct a certain experience or use a particular device alone. It’s an agreement between the three of us.”added Zhang.
The Shenzhou 15 crew is expected to spend 6 months in orbit conducting experiments and maintaining the Thien Cung space station.
