The small robotic arm on Wentian has passed necessary tests. Next, it will be connected with the big arm on Tianhe for more tests. As shown in the animation below, the combined arm is long enough to reach the new airlock section from Tianhe. Looking forward to seeing it!

Quick, hide this video from the Flat Earthers, who might use it to show the Earth is flat!

One major problem of this program is there was too much officials talking that only ~15mins out of the more than 2 hours were actually for Taikonauts-African Youths conversations.

On the technical side, @CGTNOfficial used cheap text-to-speech software for part of the audio.

Shenzhou-14 astronauts conduct their first spacewalk

This is a capture from the video. 
I noticed that the feitian's backpacks are signed.
Till now the blue Feitian was weared by Tang Hongbo, Liu Buoming and Chen Dong.
The yellow one by Wang Yaping, Ye Guangfu and Liu Yang.

I don't read Chinese but comparing with the signed envelope that revealed the identities of the second group it seems that we have discovered a new chinese space tradition: the taikonauts sign their Feitians prior their spacewalk.

Shenzhou-14's 2nd spacewalk will probably start at ~04:00 UTC on Saturday Sep. 17, after passing over the South Atlantic Anomaly.
