China Successfully Completes First Manned Docking with Its Tiangong-1 Space Station Module

Last week China was talking up its mission set to launch over the weekend to put a Shenzhou-9 spacecraft in orbit with three astronauts aboard to dock with its orbiting Tiangong-1 space station module. This was also China's first manned space mission with a female astronaut aboard.

The automatic docking between the spacecraft and orbiting space station module went off without a hitch. The main mission will commence in a few days when Chinese authorities want the astronauts to perform a manual docking between the space capsule and the space station module. That manual docking is expected to occur later in the 13-day mission.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
