Shenzhou-18 Crew Continues Experiments for 2nd Month | China Space Station

Shenzhou-18 Crew Continues Experiments for 2nd Month | China Space Station

The crew of the Shenzhou-18 mission has been continuously conducting experiments aboard China's Tiangong space station for the second month. The three Chinese astronauts, Ye Guangfu, Li Cong and Li Guangsu, were sent to the orbiting Tiangong space station for a six-month mission on April 25, 2024. 

The crew regularly maintained the combustion science laboratory cabinet by replacing burners, vacuuming and exhausting, and organizing related materials to better carry out the following experimental projects. 

The combustion science laboratory cabinet has been used in experiments since the in-orbit ignition experiment in 2023. The facility is expected to contribute to scientific achievements in improving the fundamental theory of combustion and developing advanced combustion technology.

The crew recently installed slide positioning kits for the glovebox. The glovebox provides a sealed and clean space for crew members to manipulate objects in experiments.

The astronauts have also regularly replaced experimental samples, cleaned the chamber and maintained the axial mechanism electrodes for the containerless materials laboratory cabinet to ensure the stable and smooth operation of relevant experiments.

In addition, the crew also replaced samples in the fluid physics laboratory cabinet. The cabinet is used to conduct on-orbit microgravity experiments on the kinetic processes, diffusion processes, phase transitions and self-organization behavior of different fluid systems.
