Chinese Cargo Spacecraft Completes Second Docking with Orbiting Lab

BEIJING – Chinese cargo spacecraft Tianzhou-1, which was sent into space in April, docked with space lab Tiangong-2 for a second time on Monday, official news agency Xinhua reported.

The spacecraft separated from the lab in the morning and flew around it, before returning to dock at 2:55 pm (0655 GMT).

Tianzhou-1, the country’s first cargo spacecraft and which was launched on April 20 from the Wenchang Space Center (southeastern China), successfully completed its first docking just two days after its launch.

The date for its third and final docking with the lab is yet to be announced.

On April 27, the cargo spacecraft completed its first refueling of the orbiting laboratory, followed by another on June 15.

Also on Monday, China launched a radio-television satellite into space aboard a Long March 3B rocket from the Xichang space station (southwest), but failed to put it into orbit for reasons as yet unknown.
