Shenzhou-11 spacecraft: China sends two astronauts into space

China Monday sent two astronauts into space on board the Shenzhou-11 spacecraft, bringing the country’s manned missions total to six. China’s space program remains robust, with plans for a space station, sending an astronaut to the moon, and a Mars rover. In contrast, the International Space Station is scheduled to close in 2024 without any confirmed replacement, and the US space program remains hindered by budget cuts. China has promised the United Nations that its space station will be open to all member states. Yang Yuguang from the China Aerospace Science and Industry Corporation, Dr. Amitabha Ghosh from the NASA Mars Exploration Rover Mission, and Christian Feichtinger from the International Astronautical Federation discuss the potential space cooperation could have in maintaining momentum in astronautical science and discovery.
