Women Now in Training for Future Spaceflights

From Shanghai Daily:

WOMEN taikonauts, or astronauts, are being trained for space missions, and China also can train foreign astronauts in a space program with Chinese characteristics.

China’s Air Force Aeronautics University welcomed 35 women pilot trainees for the eighth time in July this year. Experts say the country’s first group of female fighter pilots may emerge from them and the first female Chinese taikonaut may be selected from among them.
