Chinese astronauts have returned to Earth in a re-entry broadcast live on Chinese television, landing safely in Inner Mongolia. We saw the historic launch and docking earlier this month, and now, after more than a week of running tests aboard the solar-powered Tiangong 1 space module, the crew of three is back. Needless to say, this is another big leap for the country.
The Shenzhou 9 flight was China's fourth manned spaceflight, and the crew of taikonauts--as astronauts are known in the country--includes the first Chinese woman to make the journey into space. The module won't be retired just yet; it could stick around for another two years, officials say, set to accommodate more missions.
Is is just a manner of honoring the astronuant in carrying them or is a phycial necessity, because of the effects of being in outer space.
If we loose our ability to walk so soon, I find it impossible to believe we ever going to establish ourselves in outer space; let alone the suns or cosmic radiation effects on our bodies too.
The chinese make great videos of being in outer space, well done! With any good lie, all the details have to be omitted for believablity sake.
I would imagine its more a precaution. but think about it, you sit in front of the tv for a whole day and how stiff are you? Imagine little movement or what movement you do make is effortless?
I call BS! That suite is BRAND NEW! That guy did not just step out of a space capsule after 12 days. NO WAY! He would have scuffs, food particles and other wear on his suit. This guy was NOT in space.
Lol it's a she, and they don't wear the suit the whole time jeffsback. I hope your just trolling. Hahahaha XD
I would think, they could invest in a chair with strong decent handles to carry the astronauts. Imagine how stupid it look if they dump one on the ground.
wow we went to the Moon(jim carry)!!!?!

That is the coolest space suit Ive ever seen.
This is how space exploration should be done, live in HD.
No top secret BS.
WoWzers-NOT! A female Chinese astronaut goes into space. Years later as she gets pregant and has her second child, the Chinese government forces her a mandatory abortion, especially since they learned via medical testing the second baby is a girl.....
Sorry, I will hold my applause for China, since their true appreciation for female life is a falsehood.
shenzou-9 sucessfully launched hardware to ISS of its 12 days space travel.
