Here's a better translation for Shenzhou 17.

"In October, the Shenzhou 17 manned spacecraft will be launched, docking at the forward port of the core module, forming a three-cabin three-ship combination. During the two manned missions, astronaut out-of-cabin activities and cargo airlock capsule out-of-cabin missions will be carried out, space science experiments and technical experiments will be carried out, and routine platform management work, astronaut support related work and science popularization education will be carried out."

Is it really the plan that each successive Shenzhou flight will be 5 days longer than the previous one? This is what the previous version of the table would imply.

Today, the crew of Shenzhou 15 returned safely and triumphantly. According to reports, the space station has entered the stage of application and development. Chinese astronauts will stay on the space station continuously for a long time, usually with 2 crew rotations and 1-2 material supplies every year. At present, Shenzhou 16 astronauts have settled in the "Tiangong". According to the plan, in October of this year, the flight crew will still consist of 3 astronauts; The pace of progress will never stop, China Aerospace is worth looking forward to!
The newest prediction is Shenzhou-16 will be back on November 11 and Shenzhou-17 will be launched on October 27.

A @planet satellite captured Shenzhou-17 on the pad at Jiuquan after rolling out earlier today.

Crew and crowds can be seen gathering nearby the rocket as it's prepared to launch three humans to the Chinese Space Station later this month. More: https://www.spacefromspace.com/feature-images/shenzhou-17-rollout-jiuquan-20231019

==============
Liu Wang (CDR) and maybe two Group 3 guys: a flight engineer and a mission specialist.
My bet is on a physician in the crew, since they haven't launched any.

The Shenzhou 17 crew has just been announced - a pretty rookie one at that:

CDR: Tang Hongbo (Shenzhou 12)
MS1: Tang Shengjie (new)
MS2: Jiang Xinlin (new)

Launch time of October 26, 03:14 UTC has been confirmed. This expedition will last till April 2024.

Regarding mission details: there will be “experimental station repair/maintenance” EVA performed during the expedition. Whether that means regular swapping of parts like on the ISS, or more sophisticated works like those performed on HST or Salyut 7 is TBD.

It's interesting to note that Jiang Xinlin was initially trained as a tank driver but catched a chance to move into the Air Force and to become a fighter pilot and now an astronaut. Quite unique trajectory.

MS1: Tang Shengjie (new)
MS2: Jiang Xinlin (new)

Launch time of October 26, 03:14 UTC has been confirmed. This expedition will last till April 2024.

You say "MS1" and "MS2" - what are the Chinese designations here?
