The Moors return to Earth after completing China’s longest space mission. They returned after spending 90 days on China’s Tianhi module, 380 km from Earth.
Nei Heisheng, Liu Bomeng and Tang Honbo set off on June 17 aboard the Shenzhou-12 spacecraft. The team returned to the Gopi Desert in Mongolia today after completing a three – month space mission. The trio completed various missions by sending exploration information from space to Earth and walking through space for hours. The station had separate accommodation and exercise areas for the three.
China has been making great strides in space in recent years. In 2019, China became the first country to send a robotic rover to the moon. After Russia, Canada, Japan and the European Union announced that they would not cooperate in space missions, China began building its own space station and moving forward with experiments.
