The Chinese manned spacecraft Shenzhou 10 docked with the Tiangong 1 minispace station two days after its launch on 11 June. The docking used a radar/laser assisted automatic docking sequence with contact being made at 0511 GMT and the final docking taking place at 0518 GMT on 13 June 2013. The two man one woman crew opened the hatch and entered the space station at 0817 GMT.
The crew are expected to remain with Tiangong 1 for up to two weeks, during which time they undock and manually redock with Tiangong 1. When Shenzhou 10 finally undocks and returns the crew to Earth the Tiangong 1 module will be decommissioned.
