Chinese space capsule Shenzou-10 docks with space station Tiangong-1



China's space exploration mission aboard the Shenzou-10 capsule has docked with their orbiting space station, Tiangong-1. The three astronauts of Shenzou-10 went aboard their home for the next week floating in zero gravity. In such conditions the crew changed from their space suits to jumpsuits.

While in space the Chinese crew will practise docking procedures and undertake some experiments. They will also do live broadcasting to help attract interest from young Chinese. China is trying to keep her space programme going in order to catch up with U.S. and Russian advancements in space exploration.
