First Chinese Woman in Space

China will launch its Shenzhou-9 manned mission, carrying the first Chinese woman into space, on Saturday evening in a major step towards the country’s plan to build its own space station by 2020.

Officials on Friday confirmed, as many had expected, that the honour would go to 33-year-old Ms. Liu Yang, a People’s Liberation Army (PLA) Air Force Major. Officials said the native of central Henan, who has been described by the media as “a quiet person who keeps a low profile”, a diligent student and a fan of volleyball, had “excelled in testing”.
