In late April, one of research institutes of China Aerospace Science & Technology Corporation(CASC) made a successful test of its electric propulsion system of the core module of space station on the ground. The propellant of the core module of the space station, Space Class Xenon is exclusively manufactured by HBIS. This is the first time that a Chinese space station applying domestically made Xenon to fuel its electrically propelled core module. HBIS Xenon is entering the Chinese Space Station, prompting the competitive status of high purity rare gas products of the group. ?xml:namespace>
The core module is the management and control center of a space station. The core module of the Chinese space station is adopting the electric propulsion technology and Xenon will be the propulsion media of the module in orbit.
