Hi,

From all the video clips I have seen, there was no actual spacewallk by Chinese taikonaut during Shenzhou 7 Mission that took place in Oct 2008. All that was shown was the taikonaut doing some arm juggling around the orbital module. The module for a start is too small and there is no external structure in place for actual spacewalking unlike the USA Space Shuttle.

Am I being overly pedantic here, did what the taikonaut did counted as "spacewalk" even though he didn't actually do any "walking"?

Kind regards,
Shenzhou

From www.dictionary.com;

Spacewalk- a task or mission performed by an astronaut outside a spacecraft in space.


Was he outside the craft?


Yes.

Did he do a task?

Yes, even though it was only waving a flag.
