The Shenzhou-18 astronaut crew have been carrying out a series of tasks and scientific experiments aboard China’s Tiangong Space Station, according to the China Manned Space Agency on Saturday.

The three Chinese astronauts were sent to the orbiting Tiangong space station for a six-month mission on 25th April. During their stay in space, the Shenzhou-18 astronauts will carry out more than 90 experiments, two to three extravehicular activities, and implement six cargo outbound deliveries via the station’s cargo airlock module.

The trio will witness the arrival of the Tianzhou-8 cargo craft and later welcome the Shenzhou-19 crewed spaceship to the space station.
