China’s Shenzhou 13 astronauts land after record mission

China’s record-setting Shenzhou 13 mission is in the books.

A Shenzhou spacecraft carrying three astronauts landed safely in northern China’s Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region on Friday (April 15) just before 10 p.m. EDT (0200 GMT),  about 9 hours after departing from the core Tianhe module of the country’s new Tiangong space station. It was Saturday morning (April 16) local time at the landing site.
