Taiwanese Space Program commercial launch and discussion


Recommended Posts

ARRC (Advanced Rocket Research Center at National Yang Ming Chiao Tung University) has successfully launched 'the First Satellite Carrier Like Rocket from Taiwan'. Flying at an altitude of about 3km and dropping in the sea two minutes later. The original scheduled flight time of the rocket was eight minutes and an altitude of 12 km. And Shih-Sin Wei (魏世昕), the deputy director of ARRC still claim that it was "99.9% successfully launch".

"Well... alright... if you say so"

Spoiler

For historical reasons, National Yang-Ming Chiao Tung University is actually of the same origin as Beijing, Shanghai, Xi'an and Southwest Jiaotong University. And the astronaut Nie Haisheng, who was one of the crews of Shenzhou-6, 10 and 12, graduated with a PhD from Shanghai Jiaotong University's School of Aeronautics and Astronautics.

Meanwhile, the universities from the mainland are playing hybrid-powered ramjet rockets. Marvellous

Lots of systems have to work perfectly for the rocket to even get off the pad and into the air. Whatever issue occurred happened mid-flight, but it was clearly just severe enough to shorten the flight time rather than RUD-ing the rocket. I'd say it was a good enough first try. [snip]
