Three Chinese astronauts landed on Earth on thursday after finishing a three-month expedition that included two spacewalks and established the china record for most consecutive manned spacecraft operations. The Shenzhou-12 manned space station reentry module, containing astronauts Nie Haisheng, Liu Boming, and Tang Hongbo, landed at the Dongfeng landing site in north China's Inner mongolia Autonomous Province, according to the china Manned Space Organization.

The news agency, Xinhua, had been watching the homecoming previously in the day and announced that the reentry capsules had reached the Upper orbit, that its primary parachute had been safely released, and that its drop velocity was decelerating. At roughly 1 p.m. local time, the Shenzhou-12 return module detached from the spacecraft's propellant; the propellant burned up as it proceeded through Upper orbit after it split from the return module.

It was China's 7th crewed voyage to orbit, the first since the country's last human mission in 2016, according to official media. It would be the first in half a decade since the nation's previous manned spacecraft in 2016. On june 17, a long march 2F rocket carrying the Shenzhou-12, or "Divine Vessel," lifted out from the Jiuquan Communications Satellite Facility in northwestern Gansu province, destined for the space station component Tianhe.
