This was the first description of PLA Military Films Division and due to filming restrictions, the film all the rocket, rocket launcher scenes, the space station, etc., all done by computer effects. Large number of special effects and stunts are included, the most ever in any movie of the August film studio.

However, in the final decision on the Shenzhou 10, the command decided to change the "game" rules, so that the best crew becomes backup. Zhang Tiancong's group held back and another team is chosen, the reason is because of the risk considerations, around Shenzhou 10, and if there is trouble in space, the other crew should perform difficult and dangerous rescue mission.
