Shenzhou-10 undocked from Tiangong-1 module.
On June 25, 2013 at 7:05 a.m. Beijing Time the Chinese "Shenzhou-10” manned spacecraft undocked from the "Tiangong-1” module.
Following a separation from the Tiangong-1, the Shenzhou-10 moved back to a point from where the spacecraft changed its orbit and flew around the target module.
Under the command of ground-based professionals, Shenzhou-10 adjusted its flight gesture at a point behind Tiangong-1, and approached and rendezvoused with the target module.
Earlier, the three astronauts, Nie Haisheng, Zhang Xiaoguang and Wang Yaping, closed the hatches between the "Shenzhou-10” and the "Tiangong-1” and moved back to the return capsule of the Shenzhou-10 at around 5 a.m., after collecting experimental equipment and items inside the target module with the coordination of ground staff.

The cosmonauts replaced an aging fluid flow control panel on the International Space Station’s Zarya module as preventative maintenance on the cooling system for the station’s Russian segment.
They also installed clamps for future power cables to get ready for swapping the Pirs airlock with a new multipurpose laboratory module. The "Roscosmos” Russian Federal Space Agency is expected to launch a research facility, airlock and docking port late in 2013 ... Read more »
