China Counts To Manned Space Launch

From Reuters:

China is counting down to 9.10 p.m. (9:10 a.m. EDT) on September 25 for its third manned space flight that will include a space walk, local media reported on Friday.

In October 2003, China became the third country to put a man in space with its own rocket, after the former Soviet Union and the United States. It sent two more astronauts on a five-day flight on its Shenzhou VI craft in October 2005.

“We will check the weather conditions to decide whether to launch as planned,” Huang Chunping, rocket systems consultant for the Chinese Manned , was quoted as saying by the Oriental Morning Post.
