China will launch a two-man space mission, Shenzhou 11, on Monday, the state-owned Xinhua news agency said, taking the country closer to its ambition of setting up a permanent manned space station by 2022.

 

Space programme official Wu Ping said at a briefing: “The astronaut flight group is in good condition, prelaunch preparations are basically ready.”

 
After Monday’s launch at 7.30am (11.30pm GMT), the taikonauts will dock with the Tiangong 2 space laboratory, where they will spend about a month, testing systems and processes for space stays and refuelling, and doing scientific experiments.
