Chief Executive (CE) Ho Iat Seng has sent a congratulatory message to the central government on the successful return of the Shenzhou-12 crew spacecraft to Earth. Shenzhou-12 was the 19th flight mission of the China’s space engineering programme. During their mission to China’s space station, the astronauts successfully completed two spacewalks. The crew worked and lived in the space station for 90 days, setting a record of an in-orbit stay by Chinese astronauts on a single mission. The return of Shenzhou-12 to Earth marks a breakthrough in the country’s space science programme and a leapfrog development in the nation’s space exploration experience.
