China Successfully Launches Astronauts to New Tianhe Space Station

Just a month after becoming the second nation to successfully land a rover on Mars, news from the CNSA has declared that China‘s Shenzhou-12 spacecraft launch at the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center was a success.

The Shenzhou-12 carries three astronauts — Tang Hongbo, Nie Haisheng, and Liu Boming — and is the first crewed mission from China in over five years. This mission will see the three astronauts dock with the Tianhe Space Station where they will stay for three months in order to bring the core module online. This is just one of the 11 missions that will see the full construction of the space station — set to complete next year.
