China’s first spaceship ‘ Shenzhou 1’

Introduction

In 2011, Fook Wing Tong Jade & Treasure Limited has been awarded with 'A Sponsor of China Space' and 'A Supporter of China Space' by China Space Foundation.

Tiangong 1 and Shenzhou Series

On 29 Sep 2011, 'Tiangong 1' successfully launched in orbit. On 3 Nov 2011, it has also completed the space docking with 'Shenzhou 8'. China has remarkably become one of the top three major Space Research Stations in the world.

On 16 June 2012, 'Shenzhou 9' launched in the Gansu Province Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center with three astronauts. On 24 June 2012, it successfully completed the manual docking of 'Tiangong 1'. On 29 June 2012, the 'Shenzhou 9' recycling tank and three astronauts returned to the Earth successfully. This is the most important milestone in China aerospace history.

Contribution of Aerospace Technology

China Aerospace technology has made great contributions to China's communications, broadcasting, culture, education, meteorology, healthcare and agriculture. Fook Wing Tong's 'Shenzhou 1' Cabin Collection, not only provides a good opportunity to investors for collection purpose, but also supports China's aerospace technology industry.

Communications and broadcasting

A combination of Aerospace technology, information technology and all kinds of high-tech development brought us into the revolutionary era of information technology industry. Satellite television, mobile phones, telegraph, information transmission and other services, global navigation and positioning technology were developed by discovering and revealing space. These technologies made our lives more convenient.

Culture and education

The educational television comprehensively covers urban and rural areas and it greatly ease the shortage of funds and lecturers. Mankind in spaceship or space station can develop new materials, new energy, new bio-engineering and other scientific experiments and production. Exploring, recognizing and developing outer space, including substance of various planets, broadens the space and activities for human beings.

Meteorological

Using a variety of space instruments for observations and evaluations solves humans' daily problems. For disaster precaution, meteorological satellite can well monitor, forecast and assess torrential rain, floods, droughts, typhoons, storm surges, earthquakes and pests, etc.

Medical

Telemedicine system established by satellite can easily modulate the shortage of emergency drugs. For difficult and emergency cases, it speeds up doctor's consultation. Off-site consultation or remote surgery can also be carried out efficiently.

Farming

Natural resources in the country can be prospected by satellites. High resolution, clear and informative pictures of resources can also be taken. Farmers can review programs of rural practical technology through television and enable the development of farming.

Engineering and Technology

Tian Tan Buddha is the world's tallest outdoor seated bronze Buddha, towering at an altitude of 482 meters on Hong Kong's Lantau Peak Muyu. The Buddha is designed and produced by the China Aerospace Science and Technology. Welding technology was used for building the Buddha.

To ensure least impact from strong wind, engineers and technicians have a thorough calculation on wind, pressure and intensity of the Buddha's domestic load.

Scientific Research

The implementation of aerospace science and technology projects has advanced the science techniques and research level in China. It also helps advancing the development of physics, chemistry, mechanics, materials, workmanship and production, etc. Nowadays, China has more than 400 kinds of science techniques that are generated from the manned spaceship technology. They also applied the knowledge to education, mining safety and medical, etc.

Research on New Breed of crops

Aerospace cultivation technology has been applied in the provincial or regional trials on more than 200 kinds of breeds, including rice, wheat, corn, soybean, canola and other new kind of crops. About a hundred new kinds of crops or new combinations have recognition from the national or provincial. All spacecrafts from 'Shenzhou 1' to 'Shenzhou 9' are equipped with seeds during their space journey. Currently, China has provinces promoting aerospace cultivated pepper, tomato, eggplant, etc. This success symbolizes special significance on aerospace technology which benefits people's daily life.

Collectible Value

In the world of aerospace collections, the prices of American aerospace collections, like spaceship heat resistant components, satellite components and spaceship control circuits have high market values. A good example is the American spaceship heat resistant component - it was sold up to between USD 5000 and 7500.

Price of each 2003 International Space Station stamp was up to USD 20,000, equivalent to RMB 150,000.Although the selling price of collectible stamps are expensive, the enthusiasm of collectors have not been reduced. The 'Shenzhou 6' Cabin Collectible - Dragon Stamp was auctioned at the Worldwide Stamp Exhibition on 12 Nov 2011 with the price of 850,000 which broke the record of spacecraft cabin collectible stamp.

Stamps speculation is particularly fiery in China - China's "Golden Monkey" stamps reached a world record auction price. Stamps Auction was held by Zurich Asia in Hong Kong in August 2011, focusing on the 1980 introduced GengShen 8 points 'Monkey' sheets of stamps. It broke the world auction record at HKD 1,437,500 which was 20% higher than the valuation. Another version of the sheet of monkey stamp was bid by a collector at HKD1,332,500.

The value of aerospace collections has been increasing and the potential is immeasurable for long term investment.
