Chinese astronauts celebrate lunar new year on Tiangong space station, a first

Festive red adorns China’s Tiangong space station in new footage celebrating the lunar new year in orbit, kicking off the Year of the Tiger.

The Shenzhou 13 astronauts are the first to celebrate the holiday in orbit, according to the China National Space Administration, and were given ample supplies to do so. “They have decorated the space station core module with traditional Chinese paper-cuts, spring festival couplets … and red lanterns,” state provider CCTV said in a recent update.
