Wang Zhaoyao, China's manned space program spokesman said that in the future there will certainly be more and more people join the astronaut corps.
There have been quite a few female astronauts in the world, and China has no female astronaut selection timetable at present.
However, China has been studying the subject of women in space-related activities and the selection of women astronauts. With development of China's manned space industry, in the near future, China will certainly have its own female astronauts.
Wang Zhaoyao said this at the State Council Information Office press conference in the evening of Sept. 27.
