From China plans to send 2 men to space in 2005
China's second manned space flight will be conducted by two astronauts over five days in 2005.
"Shenzhou-VI will be blasted into space sometime next year," said Zuo Saichun, a spokesperson of the China Aerospace Science and Technology (CAST). "The spacecraft will make new breakthroughs in China's manned space technology."
"For the first time, astronauts will enter and live in the orbital module of the spacecraft to do scientific experiments," said a statement from CAST, the major manufacturer of the manned spacecraft and its launch vehicle.
CAST did not specify what those experiments will be.
