China's space program is a military program, not a civilian one (just like the Soviets did before glastnost and perestroika went into effect), so it wouldn't be surprising if they didn't release anything. As a matter of fact, only the Long March 5 and Shenzhou launches were the only ones publicly livestreamed. The reason why we have images of the Chang'e landers, Yutu and Tianwen publicly available is that their government and military allowed it

The Chinese regularly post data from their missions to either the PDS or their own PDS (as with the Chang'e missions). The claims about military secrecy are overblown. If there's not a toutatis model yet, it's because no one has bothered to create one and place it in a publicly accessible place. This is a much lower-level issue than "military secrecy" and something that you can fix by either creating your own model, or e-mailing the author(s) who have used Chang'e 2-derived Toutatis imagery and hope that they respond - though like with their global peers, there's no guarantee that they will.

there is a chang'e 2 derived toutatis model
YOU LITERLY EMAILED the author of the paper that the model was shown in so you can get your hands on it
(speaking of this, did your email get any replies?)
so the model does exist but i can't find any puplic downlinks

SolarMax

Post #1632by DaveBowman2001 » 16.07.2021, 05:43

The Solar Maximum Mission (SolarMax) is a satellite designed to investigate Solar phenomena, particularly solar flares. It was launched on February 14, 1980 aboard a Delta 3910 rocket. However it malfunctioned nine months later, and as a result, it was put into standby mode until it was visited and repaired by the crew of STS-41-C aboard Space Shuttle Challenger in April 1984, thereby becoming the first satellite repaired in space.

It continued to orbit Earth gathering data about the Sun until 1989, when an intense geomagnetic storm over Canada in March 1989 sped up its orbital decay until it reentered the atmosphere on 2 December 1989

I have created normal maps for solar panels and other large elements of models to make them look more realistic... so in pictures below you can see result... you can download updated models and textures now...
