The Chinese may send one of the few women into space


News! Really good news! China's Shenzhou 13 mission will be able to host one of the few Chinese women to go into space. The announcement comes just days after Shenzhou 12's crew arrived on Earth after 90 days in space and a few days after Tianzhou 3 docked Tianhe for commercial, freight transport on China's space station ( 6,000 kilograms of supplies for the astronauts who will go to the station).

Besides the fact that this news came very quickly, and the Chinese are preparing to launch this new mission, the launch date has already been set, approximately, on October 3, 2021, which is from Jiuquan in the Gobi Desert. It is not yet known except who is the woman who will walk in space, not even if she will really walk. Only some Chinese sources say that the Chinese may be preparing for such a thing. So we can always expect a change of plans. If she is a woman sent into space on this mission, then she will be the first Chinese woman to go on the new Chinese space station. 

But, in exchange, we know who were the first women in space, who belong to the mission that is now underway. It is about Zhai, who flew back in 2008 with the Shenzhou 7 mission. She was trained in the CAVES program. This was the first. The second was Wang Yaping, who was in 2013 in the Shenzhou 10 mission. In this mission, she gave a kind of lecture to some children from a school in space. She is also known as one of the reserve men of the Shenzhen 9 mission.

We wish success for Chinese with the mission they will have in October, 2021, if it will be then and all those who participate in it.
