On June 13, 2013 at 05:18 UTC the Chinese "Shenzhou-10” manned spacecraft successfully completed an automated docking with the "Tiangong-1” space module. Three Chinese cosmonauts (Nie Haisheng, Zhang Xiaoguang, Wang Yaping) aboard the "Shenzhou-10” monitored and reported the docking operation to the control center. The docking procedure was the fifth to take place between Shenzhou-type spacecraft and the space module. Previous dockings include two automated operations by the unmanned Shenzhou-8 in 2011 and both an automated and manual docking by the manned Shenzhou-9 in 2012. At the same day at 08:17 UTC the hatches between the spacecraft and the "Tiangong-1” module was opened and the cosmonauts entered the space module to carry out scientific and technical experiments.
