Shenzhou-13 docks with China's space station

Shenzhou-13 spacecraft has successfully docked with China's Tiangong's Tianhe core module, the China Manned Space Agency (CMSA) revealed.

The spacecraft took just over six hours to reach the space station and connected with the Tianhe module after "a quick autonomous rendevous, or [...] space waltz," as translated by Global Times.

The three astronauts on board (pictured) are to spend six months at the station before returning to Earth.
