With China’s aim to begin a space station, it successfully joined two space vehicles together in orbit for the first time. The unmanned Shenzhou 8 craft made contact with the Tiangong-1 space. The two spacecrafts will circle the globe. While this time the spaceship did not have astronauts, it will in its future missions.
The Shenzhou 8 will return to Earth so that scientists can carry out experiments with capsules recovered from the orbit. Kiran Kidwai – International Desk, NMTV
