This Day in History September 25

Only a few countries have the means to start their own space programs and actually get a human up into space. They are the US, Russia, and China. On this date in 2008, the third Chinese manned spacecraft was launched. The launch was part of Project 921, which was started in 1992 with the ultimate goal of creating a manned space station. The mission was a great success, and the astronauts gave the Chinese space program its first spacewalk.
