China News Service, Beijing, April 15 (Ma Shuisha) According to the news from the China Manned Space Engineering Office on the evening of the 14th, the Shenzhou 13 manned spacecraft has completed all the scheduled tasks, and will be evacuated from the core module assembly of the space station and return to Dongfeng for landing. field.

The Shenzhou 13 flight crew has been in orbit for more than 180 days since "staying" at the Chinese space station last year. During this time, the three astronauts not only set a number of new records in China's spaceflight, but also unlocked many new space skills and experience. Rich on-orbit life.

set a new record

  On October 16 last year, astronauts Zhai Zhigang, Wang Yaping and Ye Guangfu took the Shenzhou 13 manned spacecraft to enter space and became the second batch of "residents" of the Chinese space station. month of new records.

  Since being in orbit, the three astronauts have ushered in many highlights.

This mission is Zhai Zhigang's first flight to space after 13 years.

As China's "first person to walk in space", Zhai Zhigang carried out two more spaceflight activities last year, becoming the Chinese astronaut with the most number of spacewalks so far.

  Wang Yaping, who is also on his second mission, has now become the Chinese astronaut with the longest cumulative time in orbit.

In addition, she is also the first Chinese female astronaut to enter space twice and the first to be stationed in the Chinese space station, and took the first step in Chinese women's extravehicular spacewalk.

  This mission is Ye Guangfu's "Flying Debut".

As the youngest of the second batch of astronauts, Ye Guangfu faced a long-term stay for half a year and an extravehicular activity for the first time in space. This is undoubtedly a big challenge, but Ye Guangfu's performance is remarkable.

During the outboard mission, Ye Guangfu not only stood on the robotic arm to raise the panoramic camera for the first time, but also cooperated with Zhai Zhigang to complete a new test of "manual cargo transportation" outside the cabin.

Unlock new skills

  For the first time in space for half a year, the three astronauts have unlocked many new skills in their work and life. They have performed two out-of-vehicle missions, completed two space lectures, and communicated with Chinese and foreign teenagers through "Tiangong Dialogue" and other heaven-to-earth connection activities. Friendly interaction.

  On November 7 last year, the three astronauts ushered in the first out-of-vehicle mission.

The picture of China's "first man in space walk" Zhai Zhigang and China's first female astronaut Wang Yaping going out together is impressive.

After a lapse of 13 years, when Zhai Zhigang once again said in space, "I have left the cabin, I feel good", Wang Yaping and Ye Guangfu successively followed up, "I will leave the cabin in a while, I will feel good", "I will leave the cabin next time, I will feel good", tacit understanding A space "feel-good trio" was staged, dubbed the "feel-good crew."

  While carrying out missions such as extravehicular activities and scientific experiments, the astronauts also undertake space science work.

On December 9 last year, three astronauts conducted the first space class on the Chinese space station, demonstrating to teenagers the magical phenomenon under weightless conditions.

In the meantime, Wang Yaping took out a flower origami made with his daughter on the ground and gently put it into the water film. The original small origami "bloomed" in the water, attracting applause from the students.

  On New Year's Day, the Shenzhou 13 crew talked "face to face" with college students from Beijing, Hong Kong and Macau about their dreams and struggles; just as they were about to "go home", the astronauts recently answered questions via video link with American primary and secondary school students. Let the Chinese space station space science go abroad, and once again show the world the inclusive and friendly attitude of the Chinese space station to open the "circle of friends" to the world.

festive season on track

  In this "space trip", Chinese astronauts have achieved New Year's Eve, Spring Festival and Lantern Festival in space for the first time.

On the occasion of the festival, the flight crew of Shenzhou 13 is always "on time" to send blessings from space.

  In order to welcome the Chinese New Year in orbit, the three astronauts posted the word "Fu", wrote Spring Festival couplets, and hung lanterns in advance. Under the decoration of Chinese red, the "Space House" was decorated with a New Year's flavor.

Meanwhile, the "Space Barbershop" continues to "open".

The three astronauts turned into "hair stylists", cutting each other's hair, cutting hair, shaving sideburns, trimming bangs, and brushing hair. They are very skilled and can easily achieve "spiritual hair change" in space.

  On New Year's Eve, the astronauts not only enjoyed the "standard" dumplings for the New Year's Eve specially prepared by the ground staff, but also watched the live broadcast of the Spring Festival Gala at the space station after the meal.

At the official arrival of the Year of the Tiger in Renyin, the astronaut crew of Shenzhou 13 held the character "Fu" and couplets, and sent New Year wishes to all Chinese on the ground through video.

  Different from the New Year's greetings during the New Year's Eve, the three astronauts' Lantern Festival blessing is to give full play to their respective strengths.

At the "2022 Lantern Festival Gala", Wang Yaping played "Jasmine Flower" on the guzheng in the space station; Zhai Zhigang splashed ink, wrote down the riddle vigorously, and together with Ye Guangfu sent the space riddle "Baiyun Pengpeng gave birth to a foot" and "Hang the universe suspended in his arms" .

While celebrating the festival in space, the astronauts also brought traditional Chinese culture to space.

  There are differences between heaven and earth, but the communication between heaven and earth is even more resonant.

From major tasks such as leaving the cabin and teaching in space, to the details of life such as festivals, haircuts, acupuncture and moxibustion, and looking back on the time spent in space, the flight crew of Shenzhou 13 not only achieved breakthroughs in challenges and achieved new records, but space life is also full of Cultural, fun and fresh.

It is expected that in the future, as the Chinese space station enters the construction stage, the Chinese people's "daily" space in orbit will continue to be "new".
