The Shenzhou 12 mission launched Wednesday (June 16) from Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center in northwest China, rising off the pad atop a Long March 2F rocket at 9:22 p.m. EDT (0122 GMT and 9:22 a.m. Beijing time on June 17).
Shenzhou 12 — China's first crewed spaceflight in nearly five years — is sending three astronauts to Tianhe ("Harmony of the Heavens"), the core module of the nation's new Tiangong space station. If all goes according to plan, the trio will spend three months aboard the 54-foot-long (16.6 meters) Tianhe, performing a variety of tests and maintenance activities.


  • This will probably hurt several of you on here lol.

    Before spewing out the usual bs of HuMaN RiGhTs,TeCh StOlEn.Etc.Take a gooood look at our failing country and the rest of the west.

    China rising and will continue doing so!.
  • That's why everybody is worried. When you talk about China, you mean communist, no more human right, no more freedom of religion, press, assembly, and all those freedoms we currently enjoy.
  • @Noname/The world isn’t worried it’s just the west.

    Westerners have more blood on their hands than communism.Look at their history you’ll find overwhelming evidence of stripped freedom of speech,religion,and rights.Stop being a colonial sheep to these pale skinned parasites.Open your eyes slave.
  • I am sure you are right, MrNobody. So my memory must be faulty as I seem to recall that Stalin murdered +/- 30 million of his own people while consolidating his dictatorial control over the Soviet Union.

    And of course I am wrong when I seem to recall that Turkey committed genocide against the Armenians.

    And of course I must be wrong as my mind seems to recall the atrocities of Pol Pot, or the current constant murder of the Burmese people by the military, who took control over their country by a violent coup.

    I am wrong, aren’t I, MrNobody?
  • Oh, and don't let me forget about the atrocities of the Chinese leadership against their own people. Of course these atrocities are so numerous, up to the current genocide against the Uyghurs, that Wikipedia has put them into an article, with charts, and number of deaths, etc.

    Here is a link to the article so you can familiarize yourself with the wonderful conduct of Chinese leaders against their own people, over the centuries up to today:
  • And here is another example of Chinese communist policy. The eradication of journalism and media which doesn't kowtow to the official government line.
  • And yet another example of "China Rising." Putting Uyghurs in jail for the crime of being Uyghurs. Such incredible tolerance shown by the Chinese Communist Party leadership.
