The work in orbit will be synchronized with the schedule on Earth.

There was special care to prepare the food the crew will eat in orbit.

...and press conference ends.

Online Galactic Penguin SST

Some interesting facts about the mission:

1. The standard 2-day rendezvous profile will be used (expect docking at ~05:00 UTC on June 13).
2. Unlike on Shenzhou 9 (in which the crew were in around-the-clock operations), this time the crew timeline will be more traditional, in which the crew sleep at the same time.
3. The educational event will feature some little experiments on movement of objects under the gravitational field, Newton's laws of motion and surface tension of liquids - all are popular topics for previous "lectures from space" over the past 30 years.
4. On this mission there will be more trash bags, more kinds of food and a refined crew timeline. The wall panels of TG-1 will be replaced with new ones and extra movement aids will be installed.

Interesting to note that Wang Yaping has been promoted to 'Major' since her selection.

She will be the first person born in the 1980's to fly in space, and will be China's youngest astronaut, to date.

Her full prelaunch interview is here:-

There is a shorter version with English translation here:-

http://english.cntv.cn/program/newsupdate/20130610/103164.shtml

It has to be said too, that she is a seriously attractive woman, and I'm sure tht she won't have too much problem getting the attention of the males in her lectures audiences.

She did look very nervous at the press conference though.

The first docking will not be broadcast and the live broadcast will be shortened.

I discussed this with Rui earlier. They haven't been mentioned in any material that either of us have seen.
