Chinese astronauts complete desert survival training

Taikonauts Nie Haisheng (L) and Liu Wang exit from a re-entry capsule during a wilderness survival training in the Badain Jaran Desert in northwest China's Gansu Province, May 17, 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.
