The Shenzhou 9 is set to dock with another spacecraft, Tiangong 1, which is in orbit more than 300 kilometers above Earth. The commander of this mission is Jing Haipeng. Astronaut Liu Wang will be mainly in charge of a manual docking of the Shenzhou-9 with the Tiangong-1. Two of the astronauts will live and work inside the module to test its life-support systems while the third will remain in the capsule to deal with any unexpected emergencies. The crew will spend 13 days in space, conducting scientific, medical and technological experiments.

The national television of China has broadcasted the live video of Shenzhou 9’s blast off. The video is embedded below.
