The rivalry between these two superpowers continues to heat up. It even led to the Cold War. Moreover, with the news of the US Aviation and Space Agency (NASA) which has the potential to delay the Mission to the Moon in 2024 indefinitely due to budget and equipment issues.
Based on data processed by VIVA, here is a list of Chinese successes that always make America rise, Tuesday, September 7, 2021:
The International Space Station (ISS) is open to many countries, such as the European Union, Japan, Arab countries to Russia, except China. Upset, Beijing is now assembling their version of the ISS called Tianhe, where the assembly phase is expected to be completed by the end of 2022.
China's Tianhe Space Station is 15 percent larger than the ISS, and will be operational for the next 10 years. Seeing China very seriously with its space program makes Uncle Sam into a fog.
In February 2021, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) was the first country to make it to Mars. Then, followed by China and finally the United States (US). The first Mars mission through Tianwen-1 arrived in the Red Planet's orbit on Feb. 10.
It's like a gas spray. China became the second country to land on Mars represented by the Zhurong Rover on May 14 at Utopia Planitia. Zhurong's arrival follows the success of NASA which landed the Perseverance Probe at Jezero Crater on February 18.
The move is one of the many steps China has taken to expand its presence in space, including continuing exploration of the far side of the Moon via the Chang'e 4 Rover.
Mission to the Moon
A report said that the bamboo curtain country will set foot on the Moon in early 2030. The news comes after NASA's Artemis mission was pushed back to 2026 due to technology equipment development and funding issues.
A person involved in the space program of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, Long Lehao, confirmed there are plans to launch two rockets by 2030.
This thruster is a powerhouse version adapted from Long March 5. One was launched to send a lander on the Moon to orbit, and another to send a crew to meet the lander and descend to the surface of Earth's natural satellite.
"As the mission progresses, the crew will move to the lander, descend to the surface and spend about six hours sightseeing before returning to the lander, docking with the spacecraft to return to Earth."
