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.
