3 Chinese astronauts who have settled on the Tiangong space station for a 6-month stay

The three Shenzhou-14 astronauts – Commanders Chen Dong and Liu Yang and Cai Xuzhe – are preparing for an extended stay aboard China’s Tiangong space station.

The trio arrived in Tianhe, Tiangong’s core module, on Sunday morning (June 5), just a few hours after launch. Since then, the astronauts have inspected and set up the crew’s environment to ensure drinking water, oxygen production, sleeping conditions, sanitation and other systems are working well, said Wang Saijin, deputy chief designer of the astronaut system of the China Human Spaceflight Program in Beijing Aerospace Flight Control Center.
