Chinese astronauts complete desert survival training

Taikonauts Liu Wang (3rd L), Nie Haisheng (3rd R) and Zhang Xiaoguang (2nd R) participate in a launchpad emergency escape training in northwest China's Gansu Province, May 16, 2018. Fifteen Chinese taikonauts have just completed desert survival training deep in the Badain Jaran Desert near Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center in northwest China. Organized by the Astronaut Center of China (ACC), the program was designed to prepare taikonauts with the capacity to survive in the wilderness in the event their re-entry capsule lands off target.
