2003, 23 (01):
Over the past more than 40 years, the Chinese spacecraft engineering has gone through technical preparation phase, technological experiment phase, and engineering phase. Various satellite series have been formed such as "recoverable remote sensing satellite", "telecommunication and broadcast satellite", "meteorological satellite" and "scientific exploration and technological experiment satellite". Other two satellite series, "earth resource satellite" and "navigation and positioning satellite" will also come into being very soon. Until now China has launched 51 earth satellites and launched 4 experimental manned spacecrafts successfully. The great achievements China has obtained attract world wide attention and make big contribution to the development of national economy, national defence, cultural education and science research. With the advent of 21st centure, according to the development objective of the Chinese space technology both in short term and long term, Chinese spacecraft engineering will win even more brilliant achievements.
