China Space Station's first space teaching event was a complete success

At 15:40 on December 9, 2021, Beijing time, the first lesson of "Tiangong Classroom" was officially started. After 8 years, Chinese astronauts taught in space again. "Space Teachers" Zhai Zhigang, Wang Yaping, and Ye Guangfu brought a wonderful space science lesson to young people. This was the first space teaching activity on the Chinese Space Station.

In the 60-minute lecture, astronauts Zhai Zhigang, Wang Yaping, and Ye Guangfu of the Shenzhou 13 flight crew vividly introduced and demonstrated the work and life scenes of the space station, and demonstrated magical phenomena such as cytology experiments, human movement, and liquid surface tension in a microgravity environment, and explained the scientific principles behind the experiment. During the lecture, the astronauts had real-time interactive communication with teachers and students on the ground through video calls.
The whole course of the space teaching activity was broadcast live. The main ground class was set up in the China Science and Technology Museum, and 4 ground sub-classes were set up in Nanning, Wenchuan, Hong Kong, and Macau. A total of 1,420 representatives of primary and secondary school students participated in the on-site activities.
The teaching activities are co-sponsored by the China Manned Space Agency in conjunction with the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Science and Technology, the China Association for Science and Technology, and China Central Radio and Television. The China Science and Technology Museum and the relevant research and test units of the manned space project provide support.
In the future, "Tiangong Classroom" will continue to carry out space teaching activities, actively disseminate knowledge and culture of manned space, and continue to carry out various forms and rich content of space science education.
