Applications of cryogenics are described, such as the Long March 3 rocket vehicles with liquid hydrogen/liquid oxygen engines, the development of a 750 dm3/h liquid hydrogen plant and railway tank cars with 60 and 70 m3 capacities. In the FY-1 radiation refrigerator loaded on a meteorology satellite, regenerative cryocoolers of the Gifford-McMahon, Solvay, Vuilleumier, Stirling and pulse-tube types, and the KM-3 and KM-4 space simulation facilities.
