Chinese Astronauts Deliver Lecture from Space
A very special lecture kicked off on December 9, 2021, from China’s space station, delivered by the Shenzhou-13 spacecraft’s crew members Zhai Zhigang, Wang Yaping, and Ye Guangfu to students on Earth.
After introducing their daily life and work quarters and activities in the space station, they began to demonstrate science experiments. They also held a real-time Q&A with the students via video call.
The three Chinese astronauts landed aboard the country’s space station on October 16, embarking on the country’s longest-ever crewed mission for space station construction.
In June 2013, Chinese female astronaut Wang Yaping aboard the Shenzhou-10 spacecraft, delivered the country’s first live space lecture to over 60 million schoolchildren across China.
