When I woke up, a mysterious news hit the headlines.
It’s really mysterious, because the title is these 10 words: a laboratory was officially inaugurated.
It’s not too big to set up a laboratory in China. But the biggest feature of this laboratory is “a” laboratory.
I have to admire that this word is used – Chinese is broad and profound.
The news was sent by wechat of China Aerospace Science and industry on the evening of July 1. After careful counting and punctuation, it was no more than 108 words in total.
The full text is as follows:
On the morning of July 1, 2022, a laboratory was officially inaugurated in Beijing and entered the trial operation stage.
Relevant superior leaders, leaders of the joint organization unit, Yuan Jie, secretary and chairman of the Party group of CASIC, Lin Qing, leader of the discipline inspection and supervision group and member of the Party group, and Liu Zhu, member of the Party group and deputy general manager, attended the unveiling ceremony and jointly unveiled the laboratory.
It’s very short, but the so-called “less words, more things”, the amount of information is still very rich.
1. Time: the morning of July 1, 2022. Common sense tells me that this is definitely not a sudden decision, not only because this day is the first day in the second half of 2022, but also the 101st anniversary of the founding of the party and the 25th anniversary of Hong Kong’s return to the motherland.
2. Location: Beijing.
3. Event: a laboratory was officially inaugurated and entered the trial operation stage. The largest amount of information, in this sentence, is not only officially inaugurated, but also entered the “trial operation stage”, which should be prepared for a period of time.
4. Participants: the head of China Aerospace and two other leaders. Such a big battle, this laboratory is very important.
5. Mysterious guest: I didn’t say who the superior leaders are. Again, this laboratory is very important.
6. There is also a mysterious guest: the leader of the joint organization unit, who is it? I didn’t say. In other words, aerospace science and industry is the leading unit in this laboratory, but it is not only Aerospace Science and industry.
Don’t ask me what the laboratory is, I don’t know, I don’t want to guess, guess is not necessarily right, anyway, in a few years, I believe everyone must know.
But what I know now is that Aerospace Science and industry is the backbone of China’s defense technology industry, known as China’s “missile cradle”. Its predecessor is the Fifth Research Institute of the Ministry of national defense, which was established in October 1956. It has experienced the historical evolution of the seventh Ministry of machinery industry (merged into the eighth Ministry of machinery industry in September 1981), the Ministry of aerospace industry, the Ministry of aerospace industry, China Aerospace Industry Corporation and so on. Now its full name is China Aerospace Science and Industry Group Co., Ltd.
At present, there are nearly 150000 on-the-job employees and a large number of well-known experts and scholars, including 10 academicians of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the Chinese Academy of Sciences and more than 200 national science and technology talents.
Formerly a Ministry of the State Council, it is now a super large state-owned enterprise.
Oh, let me remind you that Aerospace Science and industry and Aerospace Science and technology originated from the Fifth Research Institute of the Ministry of national defense.
These two brother units are often confused. Aerospace Science and technology mainly produces and develops various types of carrier rockets, application satellites, manned spacecraft, space probes, space stations, etc., such as the familiar Shenzhou series spacecraft, Chang’e lunar exploration, Beidou satellite navigation, and the most popular space station in recent years.
Aerospace Science and industry is the production of various types of missiles, such as Dongfeng series missiles and so on. I’m not particularly clear about what else is there. But what impressed me deeply was that the astronauts had said this joke: Aerospace Science and technology is to send people to heaven, and Aerospace Science and industry is to send people to the West.
Anyway, looking at the materials, we know that the achievements of China’s aerospace industry are more or less related to these two enterprises, because in the past, the two companies themselves were one, for example, many people are fond of talking about:
In February 1960, the experimental liquid fuel sounding rocket was successfully launched for the first time.
In November 1960, “dongfeng-1” – the first missile made by China itself was successfully launched.
In April, 1970, “dongfanghong-1” – China’s first man-made satellite was successfully developed and launched.
In September, 1971, the first flight test of the intercontinental rocket was successful.
In May, 1980, the intercontinental missile Dongfeng 5 was successfully launched.
In October, 1982, the submarine launched missile was successfully launched.
In April, 1984, the first geostationary orbit test communication satellite was successfully launched.
In November, 1999, “shenzhou-1” unmanned test spacecraft was successfully launched.
In October, 2003, China successfully completed its first manned space mission.
In October, 2007, the Chang’e-1 lunar exploration satellite was successfully launched.
In October, 2005, the Shenzhou VI spacecraft successfully returned to earth.
In September, 2008, the Shenzhou VII mission was a complete success.
In March, 2009, Chang’e-1 successfully hit the moon.
Then there are the well-known “Chang’e 2”, “Chang’e 3”, “Chang’e 4”, “Chang’e 5”
On the website of Aerospace Science and industry, there is another sentence in the self introduction article:
Dozens of technology products independently developed by (Aerospace Science and industry) escorted the “Shenzhou” flying to the sky, “Tiangong” docking, “Chang’e” lunar exploration, “Beidou” networking, “Tianwen” fire detection, “and the construction of the space station, effectively ensuring the successful completion of a series of major national engineering tasks.
Of course, in the missile field, it is said as follows:
(Aerospace Science and industry) has established a complete research and production system for air and space defense missile weapon system, aviation missile weapon system and ballistic missile weapon system; The overall level of weapons and equipment is leading in China, and some professional technologies and products have reached the world advanced level
do you understand?
It doesn’t matter if you don’t understand it. It’s just awesome. Now, the “sending people to the west” unit, which is very good, has led to the establishment of “a laboratory”.
What do you think?
Let’s make it simple.
First, a certain word, infinite imagination.
I saw many netizens joking: is this studying starships or UFOs, or ice cream… Well, I don’t know, you are free, but it’s also a kind of confidence to guess calmly and casually.
Second, both low-key and high-profile.
Low key to such a short news, or “some”; High profile, anyway, it’s all hot search, or hot search headlines.
Third, I saw a netizen Sighing like this:
Watch carefully and support silently.
Some, that is, it cannot be made public, or it is inconvenient to be made public.
But the press release was issued again. This is to tell the person who should be told. I’m here and you can do it as you see fit
This may also be another kind of publicity effect.
The extraordinary year 2022 began in the second half of this year.
