So, if Shenzhou-16 launches before Ax-2 lands, there will be 17 people in orbit at the same time.
As far as I'm aware, that's a record. Anyone can confirm?

Soyuz MS-22/23: 3 people
Shenzhou-15: 3 people
SpaceX crew-6: 4 people
Ax-2: 4 people
Shenzhou-16: 3 people

This is correct.
(Jonathan also lists sub-orbital launches of New Shepard and SpaceShipTwo in the list, but they can be easily picked out by the very short time intervals)

AFAIK the overlap will be just under a day with the AX-2 Crew Dragon currently planned for undocking from ISS around 12:00 UTC on May 30 with landing a few hours later.

Does Prof. Gui Haichao have an on-line CV or such?  Or did before such content being censored?

Is he known by reputation by anyone not censored by the Party, and therefore free to speak?

Interesting, Zhu is apparently also a university professor, but at the National University of Defense Technology (NUDT), and a 3rd Chinese astronaut class member (so not a Payload Specialist).

T-0 apparently will be at 01:31 UTC.

BTW that information about Zhu is incorrect (he did got his PhD from NUDT, but he actually was associate professor at the People Liberation Army's Strategic Support Force Space Engineering University, and it looks like he left when he was chosen into the Chinese astronaut corps' Class of 2020). He's currently Colonel rank (Jing is Major General).

Gui worked as a post-doc in Canada for several years before taking a position at Beihang University (York University, Department of Earth and Space Science and Engineering, 2014-16; Ryerson University (now Toronto Metropolitan), Department of Aerospace Engineering, 2016-17).
