China prepares for manned spaceflight

2y ago


China is preparing to launch its latest manned mission to space on Saturday. Shenzhou Nine will be China's first manned space docking mission. It will launch from the Gobi Desert, and attempt to manually dock with a space lab module, the first time a Chinese spacecraft has attempted such a maneuver. On board is China's first female astronaut. Steve Chao reports from Hong Kong.
