China's 5th manned spacecraft has blasted off to their planned longest ever sojourn (15 days) out to the heavens.
The three taikonauts on-board are veteran Nie Haisheng and two newbies, namely Zhang Xiaoguang & Wang Yaping.
The latter is the Middle Kingdom's second female to be rocketed up, after Shenzhou IX's Liu Yang last year. The 33 year old air force pilot will take on a role of "space teacher", beaming out lessons on gravity, mass and weight.
The three space travelers were sent off by no less a personage than President Xi Jinping.
