China TV Reports on Pending Launch

Above is a video report from China Central Television (CCTV) on the pending launch of Shenzhou-9 to the Tiangong-1 laboratory.

According to the video, the abort tower atop the capsule is sensitive to ambient temperatures. The local temperature must be between 10 and 30 degrees Celsius — that's 50 to 86 degrees Fahrenheit.

We're also told that the female astronaut will have separate sleeping quarters for "privacy," and that she must be married and a mother.

Here's another online report by CNTV, China's national webcast station:

"Shenzhou-9 enters in final preparation: Fuel injection"
