The Chinese space station accidentally caught fire. This American movie 8 years ago: It’s time to learn Chinese
In the past few days, the "third step" of China's manned spaceflight project has achieved breakthroughs, and a 2013 American movie has become popular again. Many netizens "archaeologically" discovered that good guys, science fiction films have become "documentary films."
Eight years ago, in "Gravity" by the famous director Alfonso Cuarón, the heroine's life was hanging by a thread, driving the Russian "Soyuz" spacecraft to the Chinese Tiangong space station, trying to drive the Chinese spacecraft back to Earth.
Tiangong Space Station grows vegetables, netizens say "traditional art of flower growers"
However, on the China Space Station, the heroine had difficulty facing the console written in Chinese, and she could only use the Dafa of "Pointing Soldiers and Commanders".
In the end, the heroine drove the Shenzhou without danger and returned to Earth.
In the past two days, CCTV and other mainstream Chinese media have exposed the operation interface of China's Tiangong Space Station for the first time in history. Netizens discovered: Hey, it's really the same as in "Gravity"!
Friendly reminder from netizens: If you want to come to the China Space Station, you must first learn Chinese.
Coincidentally, on TikTok, a foreign blogger who has been following Chinese news for a long time also rewatched the movie.
The TikToker sighed on June 19, “It’s time to learn Chinese. The control system of the China Space Station is all written in Chinese. The Gravity movie has become Reality.”
A Chinese Canadian downstairs said, "I agree, I have never had the opportunity to learn Mandarin." There are many netizens who think it is necessary to learn Chinese.
However, some people think that China’s space station is so advanced, it can definitely choose the hot language.
There are also comments that "show off" the Chinese that I have learned. In fact, the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) published an article in 2018 titled: Why Europe's astronauts are learning Chinese (Why Europe's astronauts are learning Chinese)?
The article broke the news that European astronauts are trying hard to learn Chinese because they want to go to the Tiangong space station. The International Space Station in orbit is led by NASA and will be decommissioned as early as 2024.
Recall that 27 years ago, when the International Space Station was built, the United States did not allow Chinese astronauts to enter the station. Now, the Tiangong Space Station, which is independently built by my country, is widely open to cooperation before launching-dozens of countries have applied for China.
Ji Qiming, assistant director of the China Manned Space Engineering Office, said at a press conference on the 16th that so far, 9 projects from 17 countries have been selected.
Regardless of the previous suspicions, my country accepted the "inbound" application from the United States. However, the US project was "unsatisfactory" and was unexpectedly unsuccessful.
In the future, more and more foreign astronauts will move into the "Tiangong". Although it is not difficult for the operating system to support multiple languages, as suggested by TikTok netizens, learning Chinese is really necessary.
To be honest, chasing China's aerospace is better than chasing drama. Shuang Wen didn't dare to write like that because of what happened in reality.
At 9:22 on June 17, 2021, Beijing time, the Long March 2 F Yao 12 carrier rocket carrying the Shenzhou 12 manned spacecraft was ignited and launched at the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center. On the same day, a foreign TikToker shared the news with excitement.
At 18:48 on June 17, 2021, Beijing time, astronauts Nie Haisheng, Liu Boming, and Tang Hongbo entered the Tianhe core capsule one after another, marking the first time a Chinese had entered their own space station.
After this "historic moment" arrived-on the 17th, some netizens commented on the TikTok video and sighed that the Shenzhou 12 spacecraft took only 4 hours to complete the docking.
The three handsome guys from China Aerospace will stay in the space station for three months. The heavy work they face is not as simple as "dismantling express delivery" and "installing WiFi."
Aerospace hero Yang Liwei introduced in a speech at Peking University on the 18th that the astronauts only had to unload more than 1,000 screws.
Yang Liwei rushed to the hot search speech and also mentioned an English word-Taikonaut.
Translation translate, what is Taikonaut?
If you pay attention, the European Space Agency's first congratulations to China used this term. Even the names of Tianhe and the core cabin, they carefully gave Tianhe's phonetic notation, and the paraphrase of Heavenly Harmony in parentheses.
"Taikonaut" is a spelling word that is a mixture of the Chinese pinyin of "space" and the English word astronaut. It has been included in the Oxford Dictionary and means Chinese astronaut (Chinese astronaut).
As the only three independent manned space nations, the astronauts of the United States, Russia and China are called differently. The name of astronauts in the United States or other countries is generally "astronauts", and Russian astronauts are called "cosmonauts".
With the development of China's aerospace industry, foreign media have gradually begun to use "taikonauts" to refer to Chinese astronauts.
Netizens also "learn and use"!
"Shenzhou XII sent three "Chinese astronauts" (taikonauts) into space to complete the construction of China's first space station."
"Congratulations to these 3 Chinese astronauts"↓
This TikToker, Martijn Peters, spoke Dutch on the 18th and happily introduced, "In orbiting the earth, there have been more people since then!"
There is also the blogger of the operator’s own popular science channel, in detail to the netizens popularizing the "the incredible technology behind the Tiangong space station".
In addition, Russian space enthusiasts who have a deep understanding of China spread the progress of the Chinese space station to Russian users on the 18th.
China's aerospace "Sky Mission" also has its own fans~ Not only the astronauts this time, but also the historical data of the heroes who once boarded Shenzhou have been found.
Whenever we are feeling the great hardships of the aerospace industry, we naturally think, why do human beings explore space?
After all, the earth is not blue. The development of Gobi and deserts is much more maneuverable than moving to Mars.
However, when we become Kosimo living in a tree, like Tang Hongbo, we look down from an altitude of 400 kilometers.
That breathtaking beauty makes the anti-China actions and conspiracy theories provoked by certain Western forces on the earth seem even smaller and more ridiculous.
At that time, will we look at the world and others from a new perspective?
The sea of stars is our journey, but not our conquest. China is writing new interstellar stories with a unique but universal Eastern value.
Why go to "chasing stars"? Because this is the ultimate romance belonging to Homo Sapiens.
In 2012, Shenjiu astronauts Jing Haipeng, Liu Wang, and Liu Yang all entered the Tiangong-1 experimental cabin
In 2021, astronauts Nie Haisheng, Liu Boming, and Tang Hongbo were ordered to expedition and successfully entered the Chinese space station. TikTok immediately "simultaneously broadcasted" relevant events.
Let's China Space Station
Will you invite other astronauts to stay?
The answer is yes!
Currently 3 are from Germany, France and Italy
Of astronauts are intensively learning Chinese
The goal is to board the Chinese space station from 2022
Let's check and accept their learning achievements together!
If you want to go to the China Space Station, learn Chinese first!

"Chinese astronauts even took vacations together,
They know each other very well,
Just like brothers and sisters"
"When we lived there,
I feel very warmly accepted by this big family. "
In the future, China will carry out more extensive international cooperation in aerospace
China’s attitude towards international cooperation in aerospace is open:
In 2015, China and Europe signed an agreement on cooperation in the field of manned spaceflight, clarifying that China and Europe will participate in each other's astronaut training activities. In May 2018, China officially announced that the China Space Station cooperation project is open to all UN member states, and all countries around the world are welcome to participate actively.
"I very much hope that in the future, I can work with astronauts from China and other countries in the Chinese space station." Matthias Maurier said that he even thought about what to do after entering the space station: Participate in and out of the cabin. Tasks, conduct various types of experiments...
