In the on-going education of maintaining the advanced nature of the Party
members, members of the "Heroic astronaut team" are making preparations for the
manned spaceflight mission of the "Shenzhou VI" with great enthusiasm.
The "Shenzhen VI" manned spaceship scheduled for launching in the second
half of this year will be operated by two astronauts and fly for several days.
At the same time, space technology tests will also be conducted in the orbit
module. This no doubt is a very complex space technology and poses higher
requirements for the astronauts. Overweight endurance training and the
high-intensity micro-gravity physiological adaptation training conducted for the
first time are the biggest challenges to the ultimate limit of the astronauts.
The successive five-days-and-nights of space simulation training with the
-6°low-head flat lying position is the biggest challenge to the will and
perseverance of the astronauts. Yang Liwei, Zhai Zhigang and Nie Haisheng, who
participated in the earlier intensified training for the manned spaceflight of
the "Shenzhou V" and are experienced in this kind of training, are not only
training very hard themselves and trying to get good scores, but also eager to
pass their experience on to the other astronauts without any reservations. All
the astronauts are of the view that they will regard the training for the
mission of the "Shenzhou VI" spaceship as an examination for maintaining the
advanced nature of the Party members and are determined to present the
motherland and people with outstanding scores.
