Shenzhou-16 Astronaut Shares Space Experience with Hometown in China

Shenzhou-16 Astronaut Shares Space Experience with Hometown in China

Shenzhou-16 astronaut Zhu Yangzhu shared his journey in space with hometown folks and students from his old school at Peixian County of Xuzhou City in east China's Jiangsu Province while on vacation.

On March 26, 2024, Zhu visited his hometown and had a reunion with his parents, friends, and fellow countrymen. They reviewed the launch of Shenzhou-16 and heard stories from Zhu's space mission.

"I feel that everything becomes distinct when I speak the dialect of my hometown. Our simple hometown dialect always reminds me of 'Where did I come from? and Where am I going?' I will never forget the care and support of the fellow villagers in my hometown," said Zhu.

On the second day, Zhu visited his old school and gave a lecture about his experiences in fulfilling his dream of being in outer space.

Students also presented their scientific models to Zhu.

". . . Today I met Zhu Yangzhu, our role model space hero. I feel very excited and very proud (of him)," said Liu Jiabao, a senior at Peixian Middle School.

The Shenzhou-16 crew consisted of Zhu Yangzhu and his colleagues Jing Haipeng, and Gui Haichao. They returned to Earth safely on Oct. 31, 2023.

Since setting foot back on the Earth, the crew members have completed stages of quarantine and recuperation and met the press on January 19.

At present, the trio are all in good shape with normal medical examination results. Their muscle strength, endurance and cardio functions have recovered to their pre-mission levels.

They will continue to conduct training and will work towards follow-up missions.

The Shenzhou-16 Mission (神舟十六号) involved three astronauts, Jing Haipeng (景海鹏, commander), Zhu Yangzhu (朱杨柱) and Gui Haichao (桂海潮), on a 150+ day long duration mission aboard the China Space Station between May 30, 2023, and October 31, 2023.
