When European astronauts don't come to the Chinese space station, the United States has set us up again

Recently, the Russian media "RT" reported that Europe has begun to stop the cooperation plan with China on the space station. It is expected that European astronauts will not enter the Chinese space station again in the future, and the China-EU space cooperation for many years may be destroyed.

When European astronauts don't come to the Chinese space station, the United States has set us up again。 (China Space Station) According to relevant reports, the head of the European Space Agency (ESA), Joseph Ashbach, claimed that the agency was now busy working with "international partners" on the International Space Station, so "there was no time to take care of" another space station. Ashbach stressed that in participating in the "Second Space Station", ESA has limited economy and "no intention" in politics.

Although the name of the International Space Station is "International", China did not participate. The reason is that the United States is adding traffic. Later, China developed the "Tiangong" space station by itself through self-reliance, and completed the assembly of the "T-shaped" space station last year. The space station began to develop towards the stage of application development.

Europe also sees opportunities for cooperation, so it hopes to cooperate. In fact, China and the EU have signed the outline document in the field of space cooperation in 2014, and the space technology cooperation between China and the EU will soon enter the practical stage. In 2016, ESA specially arranged astronauts to come to Yantai to train with Chinese astronauts to prepare for the Chinese space station in the future. Chinese astronauts have also received training from ESA, which is a positive sign of interaction between the two sides.

Ashbach, in explaining ESA's back-and-forth, in addition to claiming that the budget was limited, also stressed that there was no "political intention", which is very intriguing. After the outbreak of the Russian-Uzbekistan conflict, the West has long been "politicized", and space development is no exception. Now Europe is controlled by the United States in terms of military security, so in terms of space technology development, it is natural that it can only obey the arrangement of the United States. Therefore, the "political intention" mentioned by Ashbach is not known as "loyalty" to the United States. This time, the United States has set us up again.

Anyway, the United States made a so-called "Wolff clause" in 2011. Wolff and other American politicians claimed to be "shocked" at the development of China's space technology, so they did not hesitate to cut off the cooperation between China and the United States in the field of space technology. After that, both China and Europe, Russia and Europe, have maintained a honeymoon period of multilateral cooperation. However, after the Russian-Uzbekistan conflict, this tacit understanding of cooperation has been affected. Now, the United States obviously can't wait to fully control its allies, and Europe is naturally afraid to make its own decisions in the field of space.

When European astronauts don't come to the Chinese space station, the United States has set us up again。 (Wolff) Of course, the constraints of the United States are on the one hand, and Europe has its own attitude. You should know that this is not the first time that the West has contradicted each other. In the 21st century, China and Europe have cooperated in satellite navigation technology. China has even invested in the European "Galileo" satellite navigation project as a non-EU country. However, these projects ended up with the intervention of the United States. The result of Europe's credulity to the United States is that its own technology lags behind and the right to speak is lost. However, China has achieved what it is today by sticking to its own development.

When European astronauts don't come to the Chinese space station, the United States has set us up again。 (Astronauts of the Chinese Space Station congratulate the New Year's Spring Festival) So it doesn't matter if European astronauts don't come. We can do it by ourselves. It was not under the blockade of the United States that we made many achievements in the field of aerospace by relying on our own strength. The development of China's space technology to today's height is entirely the result of independent efforts. As in Europe, those who are half-hearted and follow the wind everywhere are bound to achieve nothing.

。 If ESA doesn't come, it's their loss, not ours..
