06-29-2012 14:46 BJT Special Report:Shenzhou 9 's Docking Mission with Tiangong 1 |
The Shenzhou 9 re-entry capsule carrying astronauts Jing Haipeng, Liu Wang and China's first female astronaut Liu Yang has landed safely in central Inner Mongolia. It marks an end of a mission that put the country’s first woman in space, and completed a manual docking test critical to its goal of building a space station by 2020.
A huge milestone for China’s space technology development.
The capsule touched down at around 10am local time Friday morning.
Medical staff then entered the capsule to check the astronauts’ physical condition.
Jing Haipeng was the first to come out from the capsule. The three astronauts aboard said they "feel good".
Jin said, "We have successfully accomplished China’s first manned space docking mission."
After a brief welcoming ceremony, the astronauts were taken to a waiting helicopter, where they took off their spacesuits, and underwent more specific checks.
The helicopter will fly them to an airport where they will catch a flight to Beijing.
They will rest and have their first meal in eight hours.
A supervisor at the Astronaut Centre of China said they will be given mutton, two to three vegetable dishes and pickles.
Premier Wen said, "The successful docking of the Tiangong-1and manned spacecraft Shenzhou-9 was another significant breakthrough for China’s space docking technology. It shows that the second strategic step for China’s manned space program has made important progress. This was another significant contribution by China to outer space exploration."
The launch of the Shenzhou-9 took place on June 16th, and successful docking procedures with the orbiting space lab, Tiangong-1, both automatic and manual, were completed.
Many achievements have been made. But the Chinese government has also announced more ambitious plans for the country’s space exploration, including more powerful carrier rockets and space freighters, and the eventual construction of a space station.
