Chinese astronauts land after successful space mission in Tiangong

Beijing, Oct 31 (Prensa Latina) All three astronauts of the Chinese Shenzhou-16 mission returned to Earth successfully on Tuesday, after inhabiting for the first time the Tiangong space station, after its construction was completed.

According to official sources, the team is in good health after landing in Dongfeng, in the Gobi desert, Inner Mongolia province, north of China.

The crew left the Tiangong or Celestial Palace station after being relieved by three other astronauts who arrived on board of the Shenzhou-17 on October 26.

According to specialists, the Tiangong station will operate for about 10 years and should become the only one of its kind by 2024, as the United States-led International Space Station is expected to be retired.

Among the milestones of China’s space career are the rover that reached the hidden side of the Moon, the construction of its station and the constant launching of satellites, among the most notable are those for the Beidu navigation system.
