Mission successful so far

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.
