Altri dettagli della missione Shenzhou 7

http://www.spacedaily.com/reports/Spacewalk_From_Shenzhou.html

China has again confirmed the widely reported statement that Shenzhou 7 is to feature a spacewalk. This is a logical follow-on to China's previous missions of placing an astronaut into orbit, then demonstrating the capability of supporting more than one astronaut on an extended mission. China has again indicated that the mission will fly in 2007, in keeping with China's consistent but slow pacing of flights.

China has offered little clues about its systems for spacewalking. The in-flight pressure suits worn by Shenzhou astronauts have been extensively documented and exhibited. The similarities to the Sokol spacesuits worn by Russian Soyuz crewmembers are striking. China is known to have derived much inspiration from the Russian space program, so it’s reasonably to suspect that their extravehicular spacesuits have been influenced by Russia’s Orlan suits. Modifications could be made to allow the suit to pass through the hatch in Shenzhou’s Orbital Module.

Interessante sarà verificare che modifiche/migliorie avranno apportato alla loro tuta per EVA … :grinning: Tra l’altro hanno anche un problema di dimensioni, visto che devono poterla far passare attraverso il portello del modulo orbitale della Shenzhou …
