3 Chinese astronauts settling in for 6-month stay on Tiangong space station

The three Shenzhou-14 astronauts — commander Chen Dong and Liu Yang and Cai Xuzhe — are settling in for a lengthy stay aboard China’s Tiangong space station.

The trio arrived at Tianhe, Tiangong’s core module, on Sunday morning (June 5), just hours after lifting off. Since then, the astronauts have been inspecting and setting up the crew environment, making sure the drinking water, oxygen production, sleeping conditions, sanitation and other systems are working well, said Wang Saijin, deputy chief designer of the China human space program’s astronaut system at the Beijing Aerospace Flight Control Center.
