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.

Wish i could go in to space, i worry about the militirisation of space. But lets be honest, its all ready happened. I m sure they have missiles in space now.

Good luck to the astronauts, id love to go, if i had the money. But id be worried about sitting on all tht fuel lol.
