Long March 5 carrier rocket will assume a series of major national special task
China's largest push of a new generation of carrier rocket Long March 5 on the 3rd in China Wenchang space launch site success "first flight." Reporters in the subsequent press conference was informed that the "Long March 5" will be implemented in mid-2017, the second verification flight test. China National Defense Science and Technology Industrial Bureau Chief Engineer, National Aeronautics and Space Administration Secretary-General Tian Yulong said, "thirteen" period, the Long March 5 carrier rocket will undertake a series of major national special task. China's long space on the fifth phase of the rocket commander Wang Jue said, "Long March 5" will be directly applied to the lunar exploration project, manned space station project and the Mars exploration project and other major national science and technology projects can also be used for different large-scale Load and Deep Space Detection Task Load Launch. Tian Yulong said, "Long March 5" will be the end of 2017 the implementation of the implementation of "Chang'e five" launch mission, 2018, the implementation of the space station project launch mission, before and after 2020 implementation of the Mars probe launch mission.

At present, the state has approved the development of the first stage of heavy-duty launch vehicle project development, that is, key technology research and program deepening demonstration stage. 2015 began to use 4-5 years time, carry out key technical research work, focus on breaking a large number of core technology. Heavy-duty launch vehicle is a near-Earth orbit carrying capacity of 100 tons of a rocket, after the success of the development will meet the longer period of deep space exploration, manned lunar exploration and other major national scientific and technological activities mission requirements. At present, the US heavy-duty launch vehicle "space launch system" has been transferred to the detailed design and manufacturing stage, Russia plans to develop a heavy carrier rocker by 2030 years ago.
