China selects only two astronauts for new mission so they can extend time to 30 days in space | South China Morning Post

That's two significant major launches before the end of this year.

China is aiming for a permanently manned space station in 2022.

And they've arrived at the station. It's another exciting milestone for the Chinese space program.

You can just imagine it can't you - they get to the door & find the crew already there saying "Look, my order with Just Eat was a joke - don't you get it"?

Today China has a mapping mission in Mars orbit and a quarter-ton Mars Rover on the ground, powered up and communicating home. That's a great step forward.

The new orbital station has been started, they have put rovers on the moon and brought back rock samples. All since this thread started with one cosmonaut. That's fast progress. I hope we see a permanent moon base at some stage.
