In China are developing a reusable spacecraft for missions to the moon

The Chief designer of the Bureau of manned spacecraft Zhang Bainan said «Cazzi daily» that his team currently is developing a four-seater vehicle capable of delivering a crew to the moon. The engineer stressed that it is reusable option that is suitable for subsequent runs.

In an interview with journalists, he explained that modern space ships delivering people into orbit for up to six people. The Chinese are going to do the same, and in the future to surpass them.

Chinese lunar exploration program consists of several stages. The first phase includes the overflight of the satellite, and then landing on its surface, and this will be followed by a return to Earth. The time in China is still very much the leaders of the manned space program, China plans to send humans to the moon before 2036, so the developers of the reusable spacecraft will have time to prepare.

Zhang Yulin, Deputy head of the manned space programs of China, previously in an interview with reporters that the it specialists and engineers from other research institutes will take approximately 15-20 years to land men on the moon. He stressed that he made this forecast, based on the current state of the Chinese space industry.
