Wang Yaping makes history as first Chinese woman to stay in space for 100 days

Chinese astronaut Wang Yaping has achieved another milestone. She's now the first Chinese female astronaut to stay in orbit for 100 days. She was part of the Shenzhou-13 crew of three sent to China's space station on October 16. This is her second trip into space, following her first from June 11 to 26 in 2013 on the Shenzhou-10 mission. Earlier last November, Wang achieved the feat of becoming the first Chinese woman to do a spacewalk.
