A day in the life of taikonauts at the CSS

The China space station is up and running with three astronauts, or taikonauts, living in it.

Life in the station has been improved much compared to previous Chinese crewed spacecrafts, with a larger living room and bedrooms, more advanced space suits and more.

The first few days in the space station were dedicated to the unpacking of supplies, especially those from the Tianzhou-2 supply ship. Though working more than eight hours a day, the three taikonauts can still enjoy naps during the noon break. There's also an automatic lighting system to keep a healthy inner clock.
