This marked the success of China’s first such flying-around and docking test.
Shenzhou-10 undocked from Tiangong-1 space module, changed the orbit, and flew around behind the module before re-docking with it.
The spacecraft, launched on June 11 with three astronauts aboard, will return to Earth at about 08:00 Wednesday as scheduled, according to the center.
