A model of China's first solar exploration satellite – Chinese H-Alpha Solar Explorer (CHASE) – is well-attended. The satellite has high directional accuracy, flying stability, and innovative separation of platform and payload cabins. Chinese astronomers will gather images of the sun in the bright hydrogen light of the Hα spectrum after the satellite's launch later this year.
Also in Hall 7, models of new-generation launch vehicles and heavy-lift rockets are being displayed. One of the "Changzheng" (Long March) rocket family shown will soon be launched for the 400th time.
Other star exhibits are of the re-entry module of China's new-generation manned spacecraft test vessel, Tianwen 1 Mars probe, 3D model of the Chinese space station, Chang'e 5 robotic lunar probe, BeiDou-3 Navigation Satellite System, and China-invested digital lunar system that stimulates moon explorations.
