Some details regarding the manned multi-seaters orbital launcher Unha-X/Safir-3D:



New Hints

After a week-end of endless waiting, as expected, hinted by the previous days Kim Jong Un's Climb on Mt Paektu, finally the first ever proof of concept has been revealed officially by North Korea. In the latest 18th October 2019 youtube video, a space launcher is illustrated with a first stage showing 4 rocket engines. By symmetry the total can therefore be numbered to 8 main engines.

The flame in the central part is longer and of larger diameter than the lateral ones, indicating a clusters of engines or less likelly, more powerful ones.

1. The Unha-X launcher as hinted in a 18th October 2019 video.

Although the rocket does not show any strap-on booster, but a clusters of rocket tanks similar to the Saturn-IB, the real design should resemble that of the Chinese CZ-2F.

But the reference to the Saturn-IB means that it is powered by eight main engines, and that it is supporting the manned space program.

Quote:The S-IB stage was built by the Chrysler corporation at the Michoud Assembly Facility, New Orleans.[5] It was powered by eight Rocketdyne H-1 rocket engines burning RP-1 fuel with liquid oxygen (LOX). Eight Redstone tanks (four holding fuel and four holding LOX) were clustered around a Jupiter rocket LOX tank. The four outboard engines were mounted on gimbals, allowing them to be steered to control the rocket. Eight fins surrounding the base thrust structure provided aerodynamic stability and control.

BTW rocket engines are a Western invention....


The history of rocketry starts with the discovery of solid propellant. It is first invented in China, then spread in East Asia, including today's Korea, Laos, Siam, Burma, Indochina. Stolen by the Mongolian hordes it would thereafter be spread to the Mongolian Empire's splinters after its demise. All this westward. Last comes the Europeans.

Note that in this regard, we see that Thailand, Myanmar, Laos and Cambodia could emerge, maybe under an unified geopolitical entity, as the not so surprising next spacefaring great power at the 5th place!

Strong claims by North Korea as the leader in term of historical milestones. In fact it even claims to be the first one, but without providing further evidences!


Next space launch

In a modus operandi that now seems familiar to the GEOINT/OSINT analysts, the official North Korean KCNA and Uriminzokkiri websites have published on Wednesday 23rd October 2019, more than fourteen years later, nearly the same list of historical claimed milestones, and first posted on 30th May 2005.
 
And that previous occurrence was just one year before the 5th July 2006 maiden flight, at 05:01 AM Pyongyang Time, of the new Unha-1 satellite carrier, known as Simorgh in Persian or Safir-2.

Therefore it is highly expected that in the coming future, NADA will test its newest satellite carrier, known as the Unha-9. The second stage having already been tested under the guise of the Hwasong-15 ICBM in December 2017.

The first KCNA version published on 30th May 2005:

Quote:World's First Rocket Made in Korea

  Pyongyang, May 30 (KCNA) -- "Rocket" weapons were made and used by Korea already in the period of Koguryo (B.C. 277-A.D. 668). The first "rocket" was very simple but its principle is similar with that of modern one.
   
 A jet-propelled weapon called Kwanghwi demonstrated its might in a battle near the castle in Mt. Pukhan in 661.

    People of Koryo (918-1392) made a "rocket" called Hwajon.

    Hwajon was 726 millimeters long and its arrowhead 90 millimeters long. The arrow was shot by lighting the cartridge.

    According to a historical record, Koryo manufactured lots of Hwajon around 1127 and deployed them in vantage points for national defence.

    On the basis of arrows with fire wicks made in the period of the three kingdoms, Koreans developed Singijon, the origin of multistage rocket, in the early 15th century.

    There were three kinds of Singijon according to their sizes, types and powder-cartridges.

    The small one was a two-stage rocket. The medium one with one more small cartridge than the small one was a three-stage rocket, while the large one with four cartridges and wings was a four-stage rocket.

    Having a great firing power, they could strike far-off targets on land and big warships. The weapons were widely used during the Imjin Patriotic War (1592) against the Japanese invaders and other battles against invaders. They were also used as signal means.

    They are precious historical relics showing the intelligence and patriotism of the Korean nation.

The KCNA repost of 23rd October 2019:

Quote:Singijon, Origin of Multi-stage Rocket

Pyongyang, October 23 (KCNA) -- The Korean people made a jet-propelled weapon for the first time in the world.

Kwanghwi, which had the same operating principle with rocket, came into being in the period of Koguryo (B.C. 277-A.D. 668), and Singijon, the origin of multi-stage rocket, appeared in the early 15th century.

Singijon was classified into small, medium and large one according to its size, type and structure of reaction powder-flask.

The small-sized Singijon was a kind of two-stage rocket as it could fly far to a distance by the force of gas emitted from two powder-flasks installed in the tail of an arrow.

The other two weapons equipped with more powder-flasks could fly like three-stage and four-stage rockets.

In the mid-15th century, dimensions of Singijon were standardized on a nationwide scale.

This weaponry was used in the battles of Kyongju and Haengjusan castles during the Imjin Patriotic War (1592-1598). -0-

One of these is a Shenzhou spaceship and the other is a Soyuz.
How many people on PDF think they don't look alike??
You really think you pulled space travel off all by your smart selves...um..think again.

Spoiler ON since it is off topic. Again low 96 IQ shooting own feet indeed.

Quote:Soyuz Design Stolen From General Electric Apollo Proposal


There was something awfully familiar looking about the Soyuz spacecraft, the most successful in history....

Is the Soyuz Design a Copy of the General Electric Apollo Proposal?

The Russian Soyuz spacecraft has been the longest-lived, most adaptable, and most successful manned spacecraft design. In production for over thirty years, more than 220 have been built and flown on a wide range of missions. The design will remain in use with the international space station well into the next century.

But did the Russians steal the design from the Americans? When the configuration was first revealed in 1968, some industry insiders immediately noticed a strong resemblance to General Electric's losing Apollo spacecraft proposal. The resemblance was openly discussed by Phillip S Clark and Ralph F Gibbons in 1983. After the Soviet lunar program was declassified, and information on the design of the Soyuz lunar orbiter version was revealed, the similarities seemed even more marked.

Spoiler OFF.

We are talking history, that is rooted back several centuries in the past. And please google Dr Qian Xuesen to discover the history of modern U.S. astronautics before letting loose spate of such nonsense. An U.S. astronautics development that is so foreign, so Alien from A to Z.

History of Siamese rocketry

Rocketry was brought from Tai Lue people who migrated from their Xishuangbanna Kingdom, in today's Yunnan province.

https://th.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E0%B8%9A%...4%E0%B8%9F

Meaning that South East Asians have developed rockets centuries before the Europeans, unlocking a possible space launcher under the Myanmarese Tatmadaw, soon to be unveiled, and thereafter to a possible suborbital manned flight!

Unfortunately it made less than $10M in the International market.

Producing sci-fi movie is not motivated by making money.

But it is an official milestone that is intended to trumpet both internally, and externally to the world one's achievement of a new geopolitical status.

It is equivalent of a Graduation Day for nations.

Summary

China

The 2019 sci-fi movie 'The Wandering Earth' was released one year before the start of the building of China's space station.

It announces the accession of China as a hyperpower.

North Korea

Animated-film adaptation of Nam Dae-hyeon’s lightning powered FUGO. First released unknown (sometimes before 2013), and reposted in 2019.

With an upcoming manned spaceflight, it announces the accession of North Korea as a superpower.

Iran

'Mars' and other sci-fi movies released around 2019.

With an upcoming manned spaceflight, it announces the accession of Iran as a superpower.

Myanmar

The first space sci-fi in Myanmar film history,'Ananda : Rise of Notra' was released on 4th July 2019.

With an upcoming satellite launch, it announces the accession of Myanmar as a great power.

Turkey

'Turks in Space' and other sci-fi movies released from around 2004.

With an upcoming satellite launch, it announces the accession of Turkey as a great power.

India

'Tik Tik Tik', released on 22nd June 2018, is the first Indian space film.

With an upcoming manned spaceflight, it announces the accession of India as a superpower.

____________________________________


Space Sci-fi movie development as rule of thumb

Space sci-fi movie is a good indicator for any global superpower, especially when concerning one's future space achievements.

China has released its most successful sci-fi movie in the international market, 'The Wandering Earth', only this year in 2019, that is one year before the start of the construction of its space station.

The space station is expected to be completed after two years by 2022.

Related experiment preparing for 90 days in weightlessness have only started in November 2019.

1. China leads the way with the 2019 sci-fi movie 'The Wandering Earth' released one year before starting to build its space station!

Space Sci-fi movie development in North Korea

North Korea has a long history of sci-fi production, mostly animated-films for children, and dating back from the 1960s.

An animated-film adaptation of Nam Dae-hyeon’s lightning powered FUGO was first released sometimes before 2013, and reposted on youtube while being streamed live on 3rd September 2019.

This is a good indication that manned space launches are under preparation. Not a space station in the immediate future of course, but a suborbital manned space launch. Manned orbital spaceflight should be expected thereafter.

Space Sci-fi movie development in Iran

Therefore, Iran will release its first sci-fi blockbuster only shortly prior to starting the construction of its own space station. Meaning when it becomes a global superpower.

And Iran will benefit from a good teacher in this field!

Quote:Iran can learn from China about sci-fi movies: Reza Mirkarimi

November 22, 2019

TEHRAN – Iranian director Reza Mirkarimi has said that his country can learn from China about making sci-fi and action movies.

He made the remarks during a question and answer panel held after a screening of his film “Castle of Dreams” at the Tsinghua University in Beijing on November 7, Global Times, an English-language Chinese daily, announced last Tuesday.

The film was also screened at the Beijing Film Academy at the same time.

“These genres in Iran are not mainstream. We don’t have enough capacity to achieve what we want,” Mirkarimi said.

“China and Iran are both in the East of the world. We have these common Eastern feelings. There are many Chinese film experts that I’d like to work with, as I’ve seen their works on the screens at international film festivals,” Mirkarimi added.

“Castle of Dreams” is about two young children, whose mother has just died and their father, Jalal, after long years of absence, returns to sort things out, but he does not want to take the children with him.

The film won three main honors at the 22nd Shanghai International Film Festival, including the Golden Goblet Award for the best film.

The film also brought Mirkarimi the best director award, and the film’s star, Hamed Behdad shared the award for best actor with Chang Feng, the Chinese actor of “The Return” by Qin Hailu.

Mirkarimi is currently considering shooting a family drama set in a small city in China and making an animated TV series for children, possibly about the Silk Road and cultural exchange with China.

Space Sci-fi movie development in Turkey

Turks in Space is a 2006 Turkish science fiction action comedy film. It is not the first space movie (G.O.R.A. was released in 2004).

This is a good indication that space launches are under preparation. Not an astronaut in the immediate future of course, but a space launcher, with a satellite launch. Manned spaceflight should be expected thereafter.

Following the American Redstone SLV concept used to launch the single seater Mercury capsule into a suborbital flight, and similar to the Iranian suborbital manned flight with the Safir-1 SLV, or the North Korean Hwasong-15 SLV, Turkey's Roketsan MUFA Micro Sat-Launcher could be used for its first manned suborbital flight attempt.

This would be the fastest way, doable within a few years, by 2025. Manned orbital flight could only be envisaged with the Simsek UFA SLV, meaning after 2030, since a single seater orbital space caspule would have a mass of no less than 1.5 tons (1.8t for Iran's 'E1' capsule), reaching the capacity of the SLV, but feasible as the orbit will not be as high as the 700 km used for SSO reconnaissance satellites, and of only some 200 km altitude.

Rare Earth Reserve Of Japan

Quote:Rare-Earth Materials May Start Coming From Japanese Seafloor

Aug 08, 2019 at 11:45am

When oil started to be more and more difficult to obtain – and prices rised – it started to be extracted from the seafloor. Sometimes really deep in the ocean, at depths that can reach 28,000 ft underwater. What if we told you rare-earth materials may one day also come from “under the sea”, as Sebastian would say? Well, that’s the intention.

A group of scientists from the Waseda University made research in an area of more than 617,700 acres (2,500 km²) of the Japanese seabed at depths of 19,000 ft and discovered there very big sources of rare-earth materials.

To be more precise, and taking the current global demand into consideration, it could supply “supply Y (yttrium), Eu (europium), Tb (terbium), and Dy (dysprosium) for 780, 620, 420, and 730 years, respectively,” states the study published at Nature.

The important part is that the area contains “16 million tons of rare-earth oxides”. Once the material is extracted from the bottom of the sea, the researchers propose “hydrocyclone separators” to process the minerals.

The Case Of The Republic Of China

Following our previous discussion on 'Space Sci-fi movie development as rule of thumb' (for latecomers just google for any mirror site) and its meaning for any spacefaring nations, let us analyse an interesting counter example.

Today we'll discuss the case of the Republic of China (R.O.C). This is especially important when dealing with the future of Iran's manned space endeavours, as it lacks a clear green light. A situation Iran is sharing with France, the topic of our next post.

One might think that the green light factor should apply for the R.O.C when sharing the same claim with Wan Hu's (万虎) rocket-propelled manned winged Flying Vehicle maiden flight of 1465 AD.

This filter alone seems not sufficient to allow the R.O.C. to take a seat in the manned space race.

Therefore the second filter. The space sci-fi movie development. And the closest to a space science fiction movie one can find on google is nothing.

Then by using baidu instead, there is 宇宙歌女 (2008), known as Diva Viva in English. A 12 minutes black and white short movie.

Quote:Storyline

Once upon the time on a small island named Taiwan, a neighborhood magistrate receives a secret message from space through radio transmission. 'The apocalypse is near', the magistrate warns his people, however nobody takes his words seriously. Meanwhile Diva, a suspicious teenage girl indulges herself in melancholic karaoke. Her horrific singing voice becomes a crisis to the magistrate's son, an elementary school boy. Her shameless karaoke turns the neighborhood into a living hell. To revenge Diva, the magistrate decides to explodes earth and migrate into space. Written by Hsin Yu Lin

Another space related MV video clip can be found: [ 頑固Tough ] by the Taiwanese band Mayday五月天.

The clip is inspired loosely by the Taiwanese Prospect Rocket Program (Qianzhan huojian jihua: 前瞻火箭計畫).

Thus, Dr Chen Yansheng as the founder of Taiwan's first space technology company, might well succeed in launching the first Taiwanese space launcher by 2020, the Hapith-V SLV able to put a 350 kg payload into LEO, in the class of the KZ-1A.

2. Hapith-V SLV

With a PhD in Aerospace Engineering from University of Kansas, as a former scientist at the N.A.S.A., Senior researcher and system engineering group leader of the National Space Center and chair of sounding rocket program, member of the International Astronautics Federation Space Promotion Committee, having participated in the Mars Exploration Program to study nuclear-powered rocket engines, winner of the 2007 and 2008 N.A.S.A./Marshall Space Center and N.A.S.A. Headquarters Annual Software Design Awards, etc, Dr Chen Yansheng has very serious chances to succeed.

It would only require to put a manned space capsule atop the Hapith-V SLV to accomplish a manned suborbital flight. Materially Taiwan has reached the threshold, like France before.

But from the two video documents presented above, that stress delusion, failure and humiliation, it is obvious that Taiwan will not be the fourth to place a man into space.
