In a landmark moment for China’s space program, the first Chinese woman has walked in space. A landmark celebrated by astronauts and scientists all over the country.
China went one step further in space conquest. Not only launching one spacecraft after another, this time a female astronaut from the country gained the experience of walking in space outside the orbital station. On Sunday (November 8), two astronauts came out of the spacecraft in a special dress. For the first time, a female astronaut named Wang Yaping has experienced this. She was accompanied by another experienced astronaut, 55-year-old Zhai.
They made no mistake about sharing this experience of walking in the air with the control room. Chinese astronauts celebrated the achievement in a video conference. He also spoke about their contribution.
Special arrangements have been made for their clothing so that they do not have to adapt to adverse weather conditions. This dress in particular will prevent extra stress and heat. Even if there is an oxygen crisis it will provide.
“We have created three types of suits for astronauts,” said Ding Ling Yan, a Chinese spacesuit designer, and researcher. The first EVA spacesuit was modeled after the national flag. It has also been kept in mind that you should not feel uncomfortable after dressing. They have done pretty well so far.
These astronauts will test the functionality of the hands and feet of the robot sent to the spacecraft and make connections between them. They are scheduled to return to earth in April after a six-month mission.
