Yuanwang-6 has returned at home port after completing space flight monitoring missions
The Chinese space flight tracking vessel Yuanwang-6 returned to its home port on Thursday morning after completing missions at sea to monitor spacecraft flights.
This year, the vessel spent more than 240 days in the sea and covered more than 50 thousand nautical miles, successfully completing nine monitoring and control missions.
During the 114-day voyage, which had just ended, the ship's team of researchers and technical personnel successfully completed tasks in the framework of three missions to monitor satellite flights.
After a short hiatus at its home port, the vessel is reportedly heading to the shipyard for maintenance to prepare for next year's missions.
