China made its second manned mission this time with the first female astronaut on the central module of its new space station to take another step towards building this Shenzhou 13 spacecraft October 16 at 00:23 Beijing time (October 23 at 19:53 in Iran) by the Long March 2F rocket 2F) Launched from the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center. And "Ye Guangfu" goes to the "Tianhe" module. This unit is the main part of China's Tiangong space station, which is undergoing construction and development in low-Earth orbit.

Is. The cargo spacecraft arrived in Tianhe in May to supply supplies for the Shenzhou 12 crew. Physics will be fine. Researchers on Earth will also review the health data of three astronauts to learn more about the long-term effects of spaceflight on people, both mentally and physically. According to Chinese space officials, the crew will also conduct two or three spacewalks on the Shenzhou 13 mission. To send. With the completion of the Shenzhou 13 mission, five missions have been completed.
There will be two manned launches of Shenzhou 14 and Shenzhou 15, and two cargo missions will send the equipment needed by the crew. Also, two missions will be dedicated to sending other modules of the station called "Mengtian" and "Wentian".
