    To infinity and beyond – China’s Shenzhou-12 spacecraft blasted off from Jiuquan in northwestern China on Thursday morning. This time, a crew of three – Nie Haisheng, Liu Boming and Tang Hongbo – are on board for a three-month visit to China’s space station. The Shenzhou-12, which means “Divine Vessels,” is the third of 11 missions China planned to complete its space station. Over the last decades, China has sent 11 astronauts into space. This manned mission is the first time China has sent humans into space in nearly five years. Crew members will live on the Tianhe, “Harmony of the Heavens,” and the planned three-month stay would set a new record for all Chinese astronauts. With China forging ahead with its space exploration program, what lies ahead for the crew of three in putting the finishing touches on the country’s space station? How well can they carry out their mission?
