Today was the launch of Expedition 36 crew to the International Space Station.

On 11 June 2013, the Chinese Space Agency launched 3 astronauts to the Chinese space station Tiangong-1, via the Shenzhou-10.  This launch included China’s second female in space.  While it would be better if all nations were cooperating in space exploration, it’s heartening to me to see progress of human space flight.  And getting closer to double digits of people working and living in space?  Wonderful.
