Watch it again: Shenzhou XII crew heads for space station module

China will launch its seventh manned space mission on Thursday morning to send three astronauts to the core module of the nation's permanent space station.

The crew on board the Shenzhou XII spacecraft-Nie Haisheng, Liu Boming and Tang Hongbo-will be taken into space by a Long March 2F carrier rocket at 9:22 am on Thursday at the launch complex and will become the first occupants of the core module after their spacecraft docks with the module, which is traveling in a low-Earth orbit hundreds of kilometers above the ground.

Stay tuned to China Daily app to watch LIVE the mission
