Date announced for China's spacewalk mission


Recommended Posts

China's third crewed space flight will take place in September 2008, immediately after the Beijing Olympic Games, the state press reported on Sunday. The mission will see the nation's first attempt at a spacewalk.

Shenzhou VII will carry three astronauts, said Song Zhengyu, a leading official at the China Aerospace Science and Industry Corporation. "The selection process is going on now as they train," he told the Beijing News.

The flight will be launched from China's Jiuquan launch centre in the deserts of northwest China's Inner Mongolia.
