According to the China Manned Space Agency (CMSA), the Shenzhou-14 astronauts successfully entered the Mengtian lab module of China's space station Tiangong at 3:12 p.m. (Beijing Time) on Thursday.

Following up, the Shenzhou-14 crew in the space station will welcome the subsequent arrival of the Tianzhou-5 cargo craft and Shenzhou-15 crewed spaceship.

The Shenzhou-14 and Shenzhou-15 crew members will then conduct the first in-orbit crew rotation in China's space history.

Mengtian successfully completed in-orbit transposition on Thursday morning.

It marked the formation of the space station's basic T-shape configuration, representing a key step toward the completion of China's space station.

China launched the space lab module Mengtian on Oct. 31, taking the construction of the country's space station into the final stage.
