China’s first female astronaut gives birth
China’s first female astronaut has begun training for her next mission after giving birth to her first child.
The China Daily newspaper on Friday quoted Liu Yang as confirming the birth at an award ceremony this week but gave no further details.
It quoted her saying she was already in training for the next mission.
Ms. Liu was a member of the three-person Shenzhou 9 mission that flew the first trip to China’s experimental space station Tiangong 1 in 2012.
