Chinese astronauts stationed in the “new home in space”, the Multinational Aviation Administration congratulates: looking forward to scientific discoveries
China News Service, June 18th. On June 17, China completed the first manned flight of the space station stage, and three astronauts successfully stationed in the Tianhe core capsule. The National Space Agency, the European Space Agency and the Russian Federal Space Agency successively expressed their congratulations, saying that “China has taken a big step forward.” Experts pointed out that China’s achievements in the space field are obvious to all and possess strong competitiveness.

In addition, the Russian Federal Space Agency also sent a congratulatory message: “Congratulations to our Chinese counterparts for successfully sending the Shenzhou 12 manned spacecraft and three astronauts into the sky. And the core cabin. China has taken a big step forward! We can do more together!”
Recently, Russia has shown its positive willingness to cooperate with China Airlines. Rogozin, President of the Russian National Aerospace Corporation, said on June 15 that Russia and China are discussing the issue of Russian astronauts “visiting” the Chinese space station, which is also part of the international lunar research station construction project. Rogozin pointed out that the orbit of the Chinese Space Station is different from that of the International Space Station. Therefore, manned flights can be carried out from Russia’s Eastern Space Launch Site. On the 16th, during the 2021 Global Space Exploration Conference, Russia and China announced a roadmap for the construction of an international lunar research station.
“Hope to cooperate with Chinese counterparts”
Experts say that China enhances the image of a space power
After the successful launch of China’s Shenzhou 12 manned spacecraft, Russian experts said , Chinese astronauts and engineers have achieved great success. I am happy for them and hope that they will make new achievements in space exploration. Russian Satellite Network reported that experts believe that the Tiangong space station is comparable to the International Space Station and the Russian Mir space station.

Sergey Zhukov, an aerospace tester, chairman of the Moscow Space Club, and official academician of the Russian Aerospace Research Institute, pointed out that Chinese experts have achieved great success. He said: “China’s achievements in the space field are obvious to all…I hope that in the next generation of manned space stations or manned missions, such as the lunar exploration program, Russian astronauts and engineers can cooperate with their Chinese counterparts.”
Sergey Zhukov believes that through this flight, it can be seen that “China is very competitive in the fields of space exploration and commercial aerospace.”
Singapore’s “Lianhe Zaobao” published an article on the 18th that experts pointed out that the construction of a cared-for space station has a very high threshold and difficulty. Previously, only the Soviet Union (Russia) and the United States had crossed this threshold. Three Chinese astronauts officially stationed in the independently developed space station, marking that China has become a powerful “new player” in this high-tech field.
