Chinese female astronaut inspires graduates at Peking University

BEIJING, June 28 (Xinhua) — Exploring space means an enterprising spirit and an optimistic pursuit of the unknown, Chinese astronaut Wang Yaping said at a ceremony on Tuesday. Wang, having been in space twice and also the first female on China’s space station, delivered an address at Peking University’s graduation ceremony and shared her space mission experience with the youth. “I congratulate you on your precious time on campus and the coming new journey in your life,” she said via video, which was her first public appearance since returning to Earth in April from the Shenzhou-13 crewed mission.
