[i]Two prospective female astronauts are busy preparing for the launch of China's manned Shenzhou-9 spacecraft. However, it is not yet certain whether China will have its first space-bound female astronaut, a member of the China People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) said Monday at the annual session of the CPPCC, China's top political advisory body.
Speaking about the possible make-up of the Shenzhou-9 crew, Qi Faren, the former chief designer of China's manned spacecraft system, said: "There will be three crew members aboard the Shenzhou-9 spacecraft and two prospective female astronauts are currently undergoing training. I hope they [the prospective female astronauts] would be launched into space."[/i]
