March 3, 2011, CPPCC National Committee Liang Xiaohong, CCP Secretary of China Academy of Launch Vehicle Technology,Technology Corporation, accepted the exclusive interview with Xinhua, disclosed that China is now the largest launch vehicle carrying capacity of the ongoing development of feasibility studies, carrying capacity will reach 130 tons, is 6 times the active carrier.

Liang Xiaohong said that the great body of model rocket, rocket diameter is serving about 2 times the diameter of the rocket to meet the subsequent manned missions to deep space exploration missions such as the demand for launch. China Carrier Rocket Technology Research Institute will undertake research tasks.
According to reports, the implementation of the development of heavy rocket is an important measure for space development strategy, China is also implementing a large-scale basis for deep space exploration mission, will greatly enhance China's carrier rocket carrying capacity, independent access to space capabilities, to maintain space superiority is a core competence The key pillars. The project is led in a great leap in space technology, it is also the basis of radiation and leading industrial countries, science and technology and civilian industrial and technological progress, capacity upgrades.
Liang Xiaohong told reporters that the Long March series of rockets and other "catch up" models of different kind in the world advanced in the field of heavy-duty carrier rockets, the United States, Russia, have been or are being developed to carry out a representative heavy launch vehicles, China has demonstrated the development of heavy-duty carrier rockets means that aerospace power at the same time started to compete.
He said the need to overcome a lot of heavy development of advanced launch vehicle technologies, such as high-thrust engine technology, large-diameter rocket design and manufacturing technology, precision guidance, on-orbit cryogenic propellant management technology, will drive the progress of the relevant scientific and technological research, For example, guidance theory, combustion theory, new materials and computer development.
In addition, the heavy-duty large diameter rocket launch vehicle, high-thrust engine production and manufacturing, will be directly contributing to the national infrastructure to enhance industrial capacity, such as advanced materials research and development applications; large-scale structure of the manufacturing process and equipment research and development; major component of the test, transport protection.
Liang Xiaohong said that the development of heavy launch vehicle will pull the progress of civil industry, will pull a large number of direct radiation associated with this high-tech industry and civil industry, mechanical manufacturing, production, processing, materials, computer science, basic industries and other countries, high the development of science and technology make a significant contribution to national economic development.
