[i]According to ShanghaiDaily.com – citing a Guangzhou-based newspaper account — liftoff of China’s third piloted space mission has been moved ahead to the end of this month.
The news piece explains that the Yangcheng Evening News is reporting that the three-person Shenzhou 7 mission is now expected to take place before October 1.
Also, the story notes that Shenzhou 7 will dispatch a small inspection satellite to survey the scene as the piloted spacecraft spins around the Earth.
According to a report by Hong Kong newspaper Wen Wei Po, without quoting any Chinese space authorities, the Shenzhou 7 is to head spaceward sometime between September 17 and October 1.[/i]
[i]Then there was an update from China Daily. They indicate that a source on the Shenzhou program says the report of an earlier than October launch was “not reliable.”
Then there’s the report from Danwei, a Hong Kong news outlet that points to a report in the Shanghai-based Oriental Morning Post that refutes stories of a Shenzhou 7 departure this month.[/i]
