Why did Yang Liwei bring a gun when he went into space? It’s not alien defense. The lesson of the Soviet Union is clear

Shortly after the founding of the people’s Republic of China, the then impoverished China decided to vigorously build the aerospace industry. Thanks to the efforts of Chinese astronauts for decades, China has made great achievements in the field of aerospace. Shortly after entering the new century, China began its first manned space program. The equipment for the first manned space project is Shenzhou v. On October 15, 2003, the Shenzhou-5 spacecraft was successfully launched, completing China’s first manned space mission, making another major breakthrough in China’s aerospace industry. < p > < p > at that time, the pilot who took off in Shenzhou-5 spacecraft was known as Yang Liwei. He brought the Chinese national flag into space for the first time, which made Chinese people full of pride at that time. But what few people know is that Yang Liwei brought a pistol as well as a national flag. Why did Yang Liwei bring a pistol when he went into space? It’s because the lessons of the Soviet Union are still fresh in my mind. With the lessons learned from the past, we dare not let the astronauts carry guns. < / P > < p > the tradition of astronauts carrying guns dates back to the Soviet era. Maybe a lot of people want to ask, take a pistol to space, is it to fight with aliens? Of course, this is a joke. At that time, no aliens were found. Even now, it is estimated that no aliens have been found. The astronaut’s pistol is mainly used for self-defense, and the place of use is of course only the earth. Few people know about the “ascent 2” spacecraft, but it is still quite famous for space workers. The spaceship was a manned spaceship launched during the Soviet period. The launch plan was very successful, but there was an accident when it returned. The spacecraft landed in the no man’s land area. After landing, the astronauts had to wait for rescue in situ. In order to get the rescue materials from helicopters, the Soviet astronauts had to open the cabin door. In addition to the materials, there were dangerous wild animals such as bears and wolves. During this period, the astronaut encountered many dangerous situations. Fortunately, he had a gun to save his life. As a result, all countries in the world drew lessons from the Soviet Union and provided their astronauts with pistols, thus providing them with a means of self-defense. Yang Liwei was equipped with a pistol for this reason. As a soldier, Yang Liwei had no problem using a pistol. However, Yang Liwei did not need to use a pistol at that time. < / P > < p > with the progress of science and technology, the pistol equipped by astronauts has also derived multiple functions. In addition to shooting, the functions of the latest astronaut pistol include positioning and taking fire. In this way, the survival rate of astronauts will be greatly improved if they deviate from the target area when they return to the ground. Today, China’s aerospace industry has surpassed that of the Soviet Union and Russia, which inherited the Soviet Union. On the whole, China has the competitive strength agreed with the United States. In recent years, China has completed several manned industrial missions. In 2021, China also plans to complete the construction of space station. More and more achievements have been made in China’s aerospace industry. However, no matter how far we go, we will never forget those who are fighting for the future of China, such as Yang Liwei.
