Three Chinese astronauts return to Earth after 183 days in space

“Shenzhou 13’s re-entry capsule successfully landed,” state broadcaster CCTV said.

Live footage from CCTV showed the capsule landing in a cloud of dust, with ground crew who had kept clear of the landing site rushing in helicopters to reach the capsule.

Ground crew applauded as the astronauts each took turns to report that they were “feeling good.”

The trio originally launched in the Shenzhou-13 from the Gobi Desert in northwestern China last October, as the second of four crewed missions during 2021-2022 sent to assemble the country’s first permanent space station — Tiangong, which means “heavenly palace.”

Wang became the first Chinese woman to spacewalk last November, as she and her colleague Zhai installed space station equipment during a six-hour stint.
