<p>After spending six months in China’s orbiting space station, three Chinese astronauts arrived back on Earth on Tuesday morning.<img decoding=”async” class=”alignnone wp-image-260380″ src=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/10/theindiaprint.com-three-astronauts-leave-chinas-space-station-and-return-to-earth-after-a-six-month-.jpg” alt=”theindiaprint.com three astronauts leave chinas space station and return to earth after a six month” width=”1161″ height=”650″ srcset=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/10/theindiaprint.com-three-astronauts-leave-chinas-space-station-and-return-to-earth-after-a-six-month-.jpg 300w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/10/theindiaprint.com-three-astronauts-leave-chinas-space-station-and-return-to-earth-after-a-six-month–150×84.jpg 150w” sizes=”(max-width: 1161px) 100vw, 1161px” title=”Three astronauts leave China's space station and return to Earth after a six-month stay 21″></p>
<p>According to the official Xinhua News Agency, Jing Haipeng, Zhu Yangzhu, and Gui Haichao came out of the return capsule close to the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center, which is located on the edge of the Gobi Desert, in excellent health.</p>
<p>Last week, the station’s three-member new crew made their way to Tiangong.</p>
<p>Since the station is almost finished, the new crew will take care of the equipment and carry out scientific and medical research.</p>
<p>China aims to land humans on the moon by 2030, having completed its first crewed space flight in 2003. It has returned samples from the lunar surface and set down a rover on the moon’s less traveled far side. One of the goals for the future is to launch a new telescope to explore the distant cosmos.</p>
<p>Following its exclusion from the International Space Station, China constructed its own space station, partly as a result of US worries about Chinese military dominance over the country’s space program.</p>
<p>Beijing and the US have become the main competitors for setting new records in space exploration, despite the fact that US law requires very little collaboration in this area. This is similar to the rivalry between the two biggest economies in the world for dominance in commerce, technology, the military, and diplomacy, with China’s assertion of sovereignty over the South China Sea and its self-governing Taiwan serving as special sources of conflict.</p>
<p>Meanwhile, the US, with support from companies in the private sector like SpaceX and Blue Origin, plans to return humans to the moon by the end of 2025 as part of a renewed commitment to crewed missions.</p>
<p>Apart from their lunar initiatives, China intends to emulate the United States by putting a spacecraft on an asteroid. The two nations have also independently set down rovers on Mars.</p>
