The taikonauts have received a hero's welcome at Beijing's China Astronaut Research and Training Center.
Their capsule is still enroute.

  OK! So they are safely down.

So what happens to the Tiangong 'space station' and when?

Will it be kept up so the Chinese could practice orbital transfer between space stations when they launch there next space station?

I recall that only the Soviets accomplished such a feat with the Mir and
Salyut 7.


When I asked a Great Wall Industry company guy on their Paris Air show stand last weekend he said they would "de-orbit" Tiangong-1 but would not give any more detail.

Whether they will or not now remains to be seen !

Incidentally the Chinese companies and the Russian companies involved with spaceflight and who had stands at Paris 50th airshow were very helpful on public day. In comparison, a huge swathe of stands in the USA section were closed off all day on Saturday and some were being dismantled !

As for "the third docking" of Shenzhou-10:

http://en.cmse.gov.cn/show.php?contentid=1289

"At 07:05 a.m., Shenzhou 10 spaceship successfully separated from Tiangong 1 target vehicle and withdrew to a berthing point a certain distance away. After that, Shenzhou 10 spaceship underwent orbit transfer control according to preset procedures and flied around Tiangong 1 target vehicle from its top area to its back area. During the process, under the accurate control of the ground staff, Shenzhou 10 spaceship adopted a forward-flying position while Tiangong 1 target vehicle adopted a backward-flying position. Controlled by the ground staff, Shenzhou 10 spaceship started to approach towards Tiangong 1 target vehicle and completed short-distance rendezvous smoothly"

http://en.cmse.gov.cn/show.php?contentid=1291

"At 07:05, Jun. 25th, Shenzhou X spacecraft undocked from Tiangong I automatically, then the spacecraft conducted some technical tests such as fly-around and rendezvous test"

Are we saying that the Commander. basically, has no control of the Shenzhou spacecraft, the ground does all the work?

Umm, that's interesting. There are nine astronauts in the center: Wang Yaping, Nie Haiseng and Zhang Xiaoguang (blue flight coats); Jing Haipeng, Fei Junlong and Zhai Zhigang; Liu Yang, Liu Boming and Li Wang. Six of them are the two prime crews, and the other three -- Fei Junlong, Liu Boming and Zhai Zhigang -- may be the SZ-10 backup crew.

The alternate idea is that the nine are all flown astronauts (with the exception of Yang Liwei who is absent). Konstantin Lantratov found several other known astronauts around the nine.

The SZ-10 crew have received their cash awards, from the Tsang Hin-chi Space Development Fund, which has rewarded each returning Chinese space crew on completion of their missions, since 2003.

http://news.xinhuanet.com/english/china/2013-11/03/c_132855112.htm

Although it doesn't explicitly say so here, based on previous flights they will receive approx. $150k each, which I'd imagine is quite a tidy sum to the average PLAAF pilot.

Just wondering ..... was a mass announced for Shenzhou 10?   I know that SZ 8 was said to be 8,082 kg.
I've always been crazy but it's kept me from going insane - WJ.
