China prepares to send 3 astronauts in middle of June to Taingong 1 space station module.
BBC reported that China will carry out a manned space flight at some point in the middle of June.
It will carry three astronauts - possibly including a woman - to the Taingong 1 space station module.
This will be China's fourth manned space flight and its first since 2008.
It became only the third country to independently send a man into space in 2003.
The mission is part of China's programme to develop a full orbiting space station.
