The space planners of China have made special arrangements for their first woman astronaut in the space craft Shenzhou 9. Liu Yang became the first woman astronaut of China.
The planners ensured that there was enough chocolate in the spaceship and also a curtain so that Liu can have her privacy when she needs to change. Li Tanqiu, the deputy chief designer said, “We also developed a new series of spacesuits for women astronauts”.
Yang wanted more vegetables and chocolates on her menu. The astronaut system department crew introduced low fat food in the space craft. Apart from veggies and chocolates the menu also includes, deserts and food with blood enriching effects.
Such needs are different from that of male astronauts. Chen Shanguang, the general director of the astronaut system department said, “We also developed a new series of spacesuits for women astronauts”. The spaceship has been stocked with more than 50 kinds of food and the menus will be repeated every four days. In Tiangong, a curtain has been hanged to protect the privacy of the astronauts onboard. On June 16, China sent a crew of three astronauts in the space to carry out the first manned docking mission, which is an ambitious plan to build a Chinese space station.
