Shenzhou 9 capsule, Tiangong-1 module, and China’s future space station فضاء: الصين ترسل أول رائدة امرأة إلى الفضاء

June 16, 2012 -- China will send its first woman into space with two other astronauts to work on a temporary space station for about a week, in a key step toward becoming the third nation to set up a permanent base in orbit. Liu Yang, a 34-year-old air force pilot, and two male colleagues will blast off at 12:37 GMT aboard a Shenzhou 9 spacecraft, which will dock with the Tiangong 1 space lab orbiting 343 kilometers above the Earth. Graphic shows features of Shenzhou 9 capsule, Tiangong-1 module, and China's future space station.
