The spirit of the manned space program 

China's Manned Space Program was initiated in the early 1990s with the outline of a three-step development strategy.

In October 2003, the Shenzhou-5 manned spaceship, developed independently by China, sent the first Chinese astronaut into space. The Chinese nation's dream of manned space flight had come true.

In October 2005, Shenzhou-6, also developed independently by China, completed a series of manned scientific experiments in space in the true sense. This signified that China's space technology had matched the achievements of the most advanced countries.

These successes were hard-won. Over the years, Chinese scientists created a tradition of relentless hard work under extreme and arduous conditions to solve critical problems and achieve successes.
