Morning Talk by 5A Lau Yik Tsun

Good morning Principal, teachers, and fellow schoolmates, I am Lau Yik Tsun from class 5A. I’m here today to talk about China’s amazing advancement in space technology. Recently China has become a significant player in space exploration, displaying its abilities and commitment to explore the universe.

China’s first satellite was launched in the 1970s, and since then, the nation has attained impressive accomplishments. China launched people into space using the Shenzhou spacecrafts, and successfully landed rovers on Mars with the Tianwen-1 mission, and on the moon with the Chang’e missions, making them the third country to land astronauts on the moon. In the mission of Chang’e 5, the lunar lander deployed the first Chinese flag on the moon too, showing China’s ambition of exploring space.

China’s achievements extend beyond technology and exploration. Their advancements include satellite systems, launch vehicles, and space stations. The Long March rockets, known for their precision and reliability, are a symbol of China’s accomplishments. China has partnered with other nations and organizations to enhance our comprehension of space, reaching globally. For instance, by collaborating with the European Space Agency, tracking of the spacecraft via ESA’s Kourou station was provided so the mission control team in Beijing could determine the spacecraft’s condition and orbit status almost effortlessly.

China’s devotion to aerospace technology isn’t limited to its own territory. By commencing programmes such as the Belt and Road Initiative, China distributes its mastery and assets among its partners, encouraging teamwork and installing a passion for investigating space. With ambitious goals and a determined spirit, China has actively sought international collaborations and partnerships to promote its advancement in the aerospace field. The country has established joint ventures, engaged in knowledge sharing, and participated in global space programs. Through these initiatives, China has fostered scientific and technological exchanges, contributing to the growth and progress of aerospace research worldwide. China also collaborated with Brazil, forming China-Brazil Earth Resources Satellite program, developing satellites together to monitor Earth’s resources and environment. This collaboration showcases China’s willingness to engage in international partnerships to advance space tech and foster global cooperation in the field of aerospace.

China’s work in aerospace technology demonstrates their dedication to scientific advancement and exploration. Their accomplishments in space travel, exploration of the moon and planets, and technological innovation have attracted global interest. We should celebrate China’s impressive achievements and anticipate the upcoming discoveries.

Thank you.
