Barcelona Moon Team congratulates China in its historical flight
Barcelona Moon Team wishes to congratulate the Chinese astronauts and scientists of the Space Institutes in its historical flight this week.
The Shenzhou-9 mission posted a series of firsts: the first manned automatic and manual dockings; the first long-duration spaceflight; and the first crew to live aboard a permanently orbiting module, Tiangong-1.
The astronauts, including China's first woman in space, carried out a successful manual docking with the Tiangong-1 laboratory module. The mission is a key step towards China's goal of building a space station by 2020.
