The video grab taken at the Beijing Space Command and Control Center on Sept. 27, 2008 shows Chinese taikonaut Zhai Zhigang waving while walking out of the orbit module of the Shenzhou-7 spacecraft.
Chinese taikonaut Zhai Zhigang waves to the camera while space-walking beside the orbit module of the Shenzhou VII spacecraft on Sept 27. Although enclosed in a bulky spacesuit with his face covered, Zhai Zhigang has become a familiar figure to all Chinese as a history-maker. In a phone conversation with Chinese President Hu Jintao two hours after his spacewalk, Zhai said, "The process of donning the Feitian spacesuit went smoothly. In the vastness of space, I felt proud of our motherland."
