Storyline


The combination of the Shenzhou-12 manned spaceship and a Long March-2F carrier rocket has been transferred to the launching area, the China Manned Space Agency (CMSA) said Wednesday.

The facilities and equipment at the launch site are in good condition, and various pre-launch function checks and joint tests will be conducted as planned, said the CMSA.

The China Manned Space Engineering Office said four groups of 16 astronauts are now training for four upcoming manned space missions over the coming two years.

The most imminent of these, the Shenzhou-12, will also be the first manned space mission in China in half a decade.

"Six missions were planned for each of the two phases. Among them, the Shenzhou-12 spacecraft will have a crew of three astronauts. They will stay in orbit for three months," said Hao Chun, director of the office.

Building the space station will involve a large number of space walks, which can last for hours. On the ground, training equipment is helping the astronauts to prepare for the mission.

"In addition to mastering the professional skills, we've increased a lot of our body training, to increase the strength and endurance of the astronauts. We conduct space wall training underwater, and it usually takes six or seven hours," said Yang Liwei, deputy chief designer of China Manned Space Program.

"A standard space walk will last for six to seven hours. To complete the task, efficiency is very important. Of course safety is also very important. We have made new improvements to the space suit to meet the needs of the space station, which will allow astronauts to work more efficiently," said Zhou Jianping, chief designer of China's manned space program.

China is also working with global space agencies, including the United Nations' Outer Space Division. An initial grouping of nine projects from 17 countries are selected to board the Chinese space station. Joint manned missions are also under discussion.

"In the future, there will definitely be foreign astronauts participating in Chinese space flights, while working and living on China's space station. Foreign astronauts are already learning Chinese, and preparing to participate in Chinese flights," said Hao Chun.

The space station Tiangong will be completed in less than two years. By the end of 2022, it is expected that Chinese astronauts will work and live in the space station for a period of six months per mission.
