Chinese astronauts conduct spacewalks to promote construction of Tiangong Space Station

MADRID, November 7 (European press) –

The astronauts – the Chinese astronauts – on the ‘Shenzhou-13’ mission on Sunday carried out a spacewalk to advance the construction of the ‘Tiangong 2’ (Heavenly Palace) space station, whose first module was put into orbit last month of April. .

The China National Space Administration reported that Zhai Zhigang and Wang Yaping starred in the spacewalk from the station’s nuclear unit, Tianhe, at 8:28 p.m. (Beijing time).

This was Chai’s second spacewalk. The first was thirteen years ago, on the “Shenzhou 7” mission, which was China’s first spacewalk. Wang starred in the first spacewalk of a Chinese astronaut on Sunday.

Astronauts use a new generation of spacesuits called Feitian, developed by the Chinese company Donning. They will also be assisted by a robotic arm.

The third member of the expedition, Ye Guangfu, remained inside the unit to help his colleagues complete the scheduled operations.

The Shenzhou-13 rocket was launched on October 16 on a six-month mission to advance the construction of China’s first modular space station.
