Chinese new broadcasting satellite Zhongxing-9A has recently failed to enter the preset orbit due to the abnormal performance of its carrier rocket. Surprisingly, this unsuccessful mission has received heart-warming encouragement from netizens of the country: “Never mind. You don’t have to be perfect all the time”, “How you rise above the failure is more important than the failure itself”, “We’ll always be standing by your side”.

In recent years, the development of China’s aerospace industry has become more and more open and vigorous. People in the industry have perfectly and calmly accomplished all the major missions such as the launch of Shenzhou-11 manned spacecraft. Even if faced with difficulties, the nation has always been holding an honest and transparent attitude. Moreover, the public’s understanding towards failure also reflects a healthy and peaceful mentality, as well as the genuine confidence. From the participants to the onlookers, everyone is united together, which is exactly an important driving force for the sustainable development of China’s aerospace industry.

We all know that a toddler will fall countless times before it learns how to walk properly. The exploration of science may also experience various setbacks and risks. Don’t be stingy with your warm applause when they succeed, but be more generous with your encouragement if they fail. Only in this way can our scientists go to the battlefront without any burden, so as to bravely explore for our glorious future.
