The CMSA expects the astronauts to reach their destination in 7 hours. Which is 400 km into the orbit. China also included a civilian in their space crew this time. The civilian is a Professor at Beijing University. Names Gui Haichao, he is the payload scientist among the three astronauts.

Lin Xiqiang said this spaceship entered the stage of application and development. According to CMSA, the trio would remain in orbit for around five months.
