China Returns to Space - a Chinese spacecraft has returned three more astronauts to low Earth orbit. The piloted spacecraft successfully rendezvoused with the Tiangong-1 Chinese space station, and the crew entered the space station without incident. This is china’s 5th crewed mission, and has been hailed as its most sophisticated to date.
This is the third and final mission for Tiangong-1 as China prepares to send more advanced modules in its place. The end goal is for China to have its own functioning space station by 2020 — a goal the country’s leaders say they’re determined to meet.China is not one of the countries involved in the International Space Station project.
