A round of space exhibitions, featuring items carried by the country's spaceships, is to be held across China throughout 2013.

The exhibits will display items from Shenzhou 8, China's latest unmanned spaceship, according to a press release issued at a launch ceremony in Beijing Thursday.

Shenzhou 8's return to Earth on Nov. 17 ended a mission that saw China completed its first ever space docking.

Precious pictures of space missions, space breeding, remains of rocket launching and a real re-entry module would also be presented to audiences, the release said, without specifying an itinerary for the exhibits.

The main exhibition is scheduled to open in Beijing on Jan. 30 next year, and it will then go on tour to other cities.
