Chinese University and a startup from Beijing launched a returning rocket

The number of people wishing to create and operate returned missile systems is increasing. On Tuesday, a startup from Beijing Space Transportation launched the first test suborbital launch of the Jiageng-I rocket. The device rose to 26.2 km and returned safely to the ground. Scientists from the oldest aerospace university in China, Xiamen University, participated directly in the development of Jiageng-I and in trial launches with a whole range of experiments.

Xiamen University

The Jiageng-I is a mixture of aviation and space development. The wingspan of the rocket is 2.5 meters, and height – 8.7 meters. The weight of the rocket reaches 3700 kg. The maximum speed is 4300 km / h. The test launch was designed to test the aerodynamic qualities of the rocket and was accompanied by a number of other experiments. In particular, the apparatus carried the full load in the form of a head cone of a special configuration. This is a design of the fairing for hypersonic transport, which promises to be used in future planes to transport people in two hours to any point on Earth.

In perspective, a Jiageng-I based rocket may become a relatively inexpensive way to put small satellites into orbit. Alas, the small wingspan does not allow us to hope for the landing of the vehicle on the airfield on the principle of aircraft. Jiageng-I used the parachute system to land. You can also question the lifting properties of the wing of the apparatus, which are unlikely to have sufficient characteristics for planning.

Space transportation

It is interesting to note that Space Transportation was established in August 2018. And now, in April 2019, it launches the first prototype of development into the sky. The company's commercial project – the Tian Xing – 1 rocket will be able to put satellites weighing from 100 to 1000 kilograms into orbit. At this rate, China can quickly reshape the market for space launches.
