China's Tiangong Space Station Holds Youth Art Exhibition

China's Tiangong Space Station Holds Youth Art Exhibition

An exhibition, featuring 53 pieces of art made by children, was launched at China's orbiting Tiangong Space Station on Friday, February 23, 2024. Under the theme of "Chinese modernization in the eyes of children," this is the third exhibition of its kind held on the Tiangong. The paintings were selected from more than 20,000 pieces of artwork by youngsters from across China since October last year.

The Shenzhou-17 crew, namely Tang Hongbo, Tang Shengjie and Jiang Xinlin, who arrived at the space station on Oct 26, 2023 for a six-month mission, displayed the paintings on two large silk scrolls.

The trio sent a message of encouragement to the youngsters across China, hoping that they will turn their best wishes for the motherland in the paintings into reality one day.

The 53 paintings, along with space supplies, were sent to the station by the Tianzhou-7, the latest cargo spacecraft launched by China on Jan 17.

The first Tiangong painting exhibition was held on Jan 1, 2022.

The Shenzhou-17 crew continue to research human adaptation to the space environment. So far, they have successfully completed many tasks, including spacewalks, moving equipment out of the space station for space experiments, managing equipment and facilities, and maintaining experiment facilities for long term science research.

Shenzhou-17 is the sixth crew of three astronauts on a mission to the China Space Station. Shenzhou-17 is also the twelfth crewed and seventeenth flight overall of China's Shenzhou spaceflight program.
