If it's a probe to the Moon, no big deal. If it's something that's going to simulate a future manned mission, interesting. Who knows with the way this reads.

China's Shenzhou VI orbital module has been operating normally for two months, with scientific experiments being conducted smoothly in the spacecraft.[email protected]
The People's Daily reports that after orbiting the Earth more than 1,000 times, onboard equipment is still in good condition for carrying out planned programs and experiments.
Data is being collected from the orbital craft for future space flights and docking missions.

The most urgent task is involving more enterprises in the space programme

100 people commended for manned space program
Without providing the name list, Jin said those commended are those who have contributed tremendously to research and development, manufacturing, testing projects for the program, and those working for the program as managerial personnel or security guards during the past two years...
..... China plans to set up a man-tended space station for the peaceful use of space resources in the coming decades. Enditem
